Spread the love

Can you be just friends with your Ex, well that’s a tough question but its possible. Here are a few tips

  1. Give yourself time after the break-up. Don’t rush into being friends with your ex. There might be negative feelings left over from your relationship which won’t be a good foundation for friendship. Only start seeing each other as friends if you’re sure there are no bad feelings left.
  2. Don’t be pushy. If your ex is clear about not wanting a friendship, respect their space.
  3. Know your motives. Why do you want to be friends with this person? Is it because you’re trying to woo them back into your life as a partner, or because you genuinely treasure them as a friend?
  4. Take one step at a time. Fitting into your ex’s life as a friend after being in an intimate relationship is challenging. So start off gently. Start by calling each other on birthdays, sending emails, text messages, etc. Call off meeting each other until you think the awkward phase has passed.
  5. Don’t discuss sexual or romantic topics in the beginning. If you’re dating someone or have a crush, don’t discuss it with your ex. You can be honest with them about your love life, but spare them the details.
  6. Share your new relationship status with a good friend. It’s always good to let a trusted friend in on how you’re dealing with a new friendship.
  7. Avoid flirting or a physical relationship with your ex. This can be dangerous – before you know it, you might end up in a situation that leaves you both confused and unhappy. Remind yourself of all the reasons that led to the break-up.
