does anyone think its possible to stay good friends with someone you've been in a relationship with, after you split up? or is it pointless?
if i ever split up with my bf i would definetly want to stay friends with him if it was possible. but i guess it is very hard sometimes and if it ended badly
I m convinced that its perfectly possible to stay friends after a nice relationship.
It usually doesn't work straight away, but give eachother time and space, and I reckon you can then be friends.
Am sure its possible for some,
But for me, its never happened. We just tend to drift apart after the breakup regardless whoever was the one that suggested the breakup.
Not a great idea in some respects, but if the attraction has truly died out and it wasn't a bitter end, then pourqoui pas?
If u were good friends before, or had a good foundtion to ur relationship then it is completely possible. U've just got to give each other a lot of space. It will deffo be awkard in the beginning but time is a healer.
I'm friends with all my ex's.
It's worked out for me. I think at first you just have to give one another a lot of space and at the start it can be hard and you have to be prepared to be hurt or feel awkward or jealous sometimes (mainly during the start of the friendship when your still not completely over it).
I've always been friends with my boyfriends before dating them so maybe that helps.
If there is still an attraction i would say no. there is still gonna b a element of jealously. I suppose it boils down to how strong the attraction is
he keeps sending me mixed signals which makes it difficult for me to move on =S one minute he says "i think we should move on, it will be better for us" and the next minute he says "i miss/love you so much". he even told me he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me the other day and that it could happen which i thought was a strange thing to say, when he decided that we should break up. i just feel so confused!
I'm still friends with my ex bf. I still care about him, but as a friend.
We broke up because we had our differences (of course there was some anger and awkwardness at the begining), and I think we both thought (for the last month) that it's better to be just friends.
