possible for some..it depends on your relationship and situation..sometimes exes became friends if they choose to..the fell out of love and realized they can be just friends only. but if one really loves the others and the other one is not, then i think no..in my case, maybe No is the answer..theres too much hurt and pain seeing him not mine so rather stay away than being friends.. (that's on my case only
Not in my life. We can say hi on the streets if I was to bump into to any of my exes but I don't believe in friendship when there's still too much feelings involved from the other side.
Breaking up to me means, going on with your life and choosing a different road. I prefer to follow that road without a hopeful ex following behind me.
Yes. Just because you couldn't be in a relationship with them does not mean you can't stay friends. After the hurt has healed, and time has passed, a friendship with an ex can last a lifetime. One of my ex's was the photographer at my wedding, and he and I are like brother and sister. We ask advice of one another, and respect each other. He has been in a relationship for 17 years, and I have been married for 12. Neither of us thinks of the other in "that way".
I am also friends with my ex husband. We had two children together. I didn't want to be married to him, but that didn't mean I didn't want to be part of his life, with my children.
You can be friends...just friends...and share a lifetime of having a great friend by your side.
An Ex is an EX, why bother? everybody should move on with their lives.
I think it depends on the relationship. Serious exs I find it hard to be involved with, though I have had "flings" with partners before on a just slightly more than friends basis, and now we are still good friends. I am happily in a relationship now, my current partner knows my ex, and there is no tension between any of us (including sexual). We both accept that what we had was good, and that there is no reason not to continue being friends just because we dont want to be in a serious relationship
I think it is moreso today than it used to be. Forgiving is the key - you may never forget, but you can forgive.
Anything's possible but I would not recommend it, unless you really needed to be friends - For example if you have a shared property/business or children together. In cases like that it's probably good to get to a point where, even if you're not really 'friends' you stay 'friendly' towards eachother. Apart from this an ex is someone from the past, not your future.
Yes it is possible depending on the situation. My ex-husband and I are close friends and still consider each other like family. We just were not good marriage partners, but we share a son we both adore. He is actually good friends with my current partner as well - it's funny my ex will call sometimes and I'll be like Oh let me get Sean for you (our son) and he's like no actually I want to talk to Nick (my current hubs) lol.
We all get along and are like family and that's as it should be for us. It has made adjusting to a new life easier for my son who now has two positive male role models in his life.
It may take a while, but yes, It is indeed possible.
All that is needed is to keep an open mind about it. And respect, of course.
I don't think it is..... Doing so, You generally end up creating a bigger nuisance.
But again, it's one's own call... YOu think you would cope up...go for it !
