i mean if youve been in for a long time would you carry on being friends?! most people dont really like it being friends because of the thought that maybe the feeling will get back again and make things complicated. If you ask me im sure that i will be friends with my ex thats one way of showing that its no big deal whats done is done:) It depends how your relationship was previous to becoming a couple. If you were friends before you got together, you can usually stay friends because you know how to talk without being in a relationship Honestly, it all depends on how the breakup went. If it was a good breakup, then yeah, we can probably stay friends, but if it was ugly...probably best to leave and both go your separate ways

I have no problem being friends with my ex, it depends on a few factors of course.

I am divorced after a 30 year marriage and remaried as is my ex.has been about 5 years,I dont have a problem with being friends we have children and grandchildren together so there are times we need to be in the same place at the same time. although we are able to be civil and not start a war lol we speak if necessary and leave it at that,but ya I can be his friend with no feelings of wanting him back as I would never go there again.

yes its too complicated going back to things we decided we want to end but life as hard as it is we should be really rocksteady with our decisions.

I would defenitely not stay friends with my ex. I think it is the difficult thing to do. Cause break-up is usually caused by either one of us being uncomfortable with the other in various things. Then I think in such conditions it is very diffult to remain friends. So, I would not stay friends with my ex wether it was mine or his fault that lead to the break-up.
