There’s a lot that goes into a BF/GF relationship, and it isn’t always easy to
throw that away. If you’re dating, you’re not only spending hours together
hanging out, but you also respect, trust and support each other. Now aren’t
those the same qualities you look for in a friend?
There is a
reason that after a breakup the first words that are spoken are often, “I hope
we can still be friends.” It isn’t a cliché—they’re usually said because
they’re true. That is, unless your ex is just trying to let you down easy and he
wants to spare your feelings. But if it was a healthy and happy relationship,
there is no reason why you can’t split on friendly terms.
hanging with your ex can create quite a few sticky sitches. What if you start
to crush on him again? He can’t get over you? Or if your new beau doesn’t like
you hanging with him? The answer: Keep the relationship light and easy, and
always give him some space for a few weeks after the breakup. Always keep in
mind your feelings and the feelings of those around you. There’s no sense in hurting
anybody just because you’ve kept in contact with your ex.
