    Can you be friends with an ex boyfriend?

    I am very good friends with an ex yet have NO contact whatsoever with another (his choice).
    I think the reason we have stayed such close friends is because we were best friends for so long before, and tbh, turning a best friend relationship into a sexual relationship was a mistake. We didn't want to break up and lose our friendship, too.

    Things can get messy if there are still feelings involved, hence why my most recent ex doen't want contact.

    I'm friends with my ex now, we talk on msn but we don't want to add each other on fb or anything like that. I don't want to be friends with him before because I'm not ready yet or I might get emotional again but now I'm over it because he was telling me all the girls he had and I didn't even feel jealous or anything like that.
