I think it depends on how the relationship ended. I do had a friend who became my boyfriend and 'til now we are still friends. For me, there is still a possibility that lovers can be friends so I don't believe in that saying...

... it could be both way around ... sometimes it is difficult for friends to turn lover since they do not want to jeopardize what they have. And in many cases lovers do become friends ...

I think if a lover can become a freiend,the friendship between us will last for life, and we will share the happiness and pain whatever anything happen,wherever you go. But it's difficult to be lovers for the friends known well each other,becaue there is not anything unknown for both of you,so lack of something attractive and feel like family.

Hi there Sparkling Pink! I think that saying is not true, or not always applicable. Maybe that's how it is for the majority but based from my personal experience and some people that I know, it is possible to be friends again after breaking up. I think it all depends upon the reason of the break-up, how the break-up happened and when it happened. If you broke up before it's too late - that you both lost your respect for each other, then being friends will be a miracle but if it's the other way around, then there's a big chance that you can be friends again.

I think both can be possible. friends can be lover. it is more possible. in that case you are already in comfort level. Lovers can be friend but its tough.

As another saying goes... "In everything there is an exemption" Well, for me I believe that it is possible to be friends with an ex partner. As long as you know that both of you didn't do anything evil against each other... why not?I mean if you end your relationship without pain in your heart and you believe that is the best thing to do. Then I think that it would be possible to become friends. Even with my ex, some of them I consider my friends... they know me better. Its just that our relationship is better when we are friends than when we were lovers. I think there is nothing impossible, when two persons agreed to make it possible. And it would happen if you both wanted to save if not your relationship, at least your friendship. I wont say it generally, because there are some who wanted to leave everything behind, including friendship when relationship came to an end... and I have nothing against it.... its a personal choice.

i disagree, because lovers can be friends... thus, it is between the two of you... you can be good friends after you realtionship. Thus, acceptance is just the key for it. The fact that god forgive men, then why men can't forgive his fellow men. That is why i believe that lovers can be friends.
