Is it possible to make friendship with the person who broke our heart in love?
Sure. That's happened to me twice. It was a little awkward being around the guy for a couple of months after we broke up, but we continued to be friends. I think that's because our deeper relationship was built on common interests and those things didn't change after we broke up. As DDE said, if you can forgive each other for whatever caused the breakup, it's possible to move on as friends instead of dwelling on the pain of the past.
I believe it depends on the circumstances involved and the length of time apart between the couple as well as their mindset today.
It's unrealistic to expect "instant friendship" after a breakup. Odds are if this is attempted the hurt person secretly hopes to win back their ex unless the breakup is the result of them having been cheated on or mistreated.
The best friendships between exes usually occur after there has been a large gap of time and both parties have moved on and found love with others. If it still hurts you every time you see them it means you have not gotten over them. True forgiveness means letting go.
