Can you be FRIENDS after BREAKUP?

you can still be friends if you broke up properly. I'd have respect for a guy who told me straight that he wants out.And you have to accept the facet that the relationship didn't work. It's better to befriend him than to harbor hatred that hinders you from moving on.

Well different people have different perspective but in my opinion friendship with you ex is quite possible, however if you have been in bad, abusive and tense relationship then its better to look forward and forget your past..Forget the past for what it was and acknowledge the present for what it is now..

As long as the break-up was amicable, I think I can still be friends with my ex. But not close friends. It would be too awkward. Casual friends, maybe. Because I think the memories of being together will just hinder me from looking at him differently. On the other hand, if the break-up was nasty, I'd rather not see him again. Maybe after 50 years it will be ok. LOL!

Personally I could not do it. I would not harbor ill feelings but could not be friends as if we could we would still be together. I know people who do and for some it works and for some it does not. By the way welcome to myLot as I see you are relatively new.
