I think you can be friends with your ex's as long as you are not in a relationship. i mean would you want your partner talking to going and hanging out with someone they used to love and or sleep with. its just not a reasonable thing to ask someone to except i dont think. I am friends with one of my ex's but he lives far away and we only speak about 3 times a year. Just long enough to make sure life is going well for eachother and wish eachother the best.

it depends on the way they parted ways, set for example both party decided to end it up because they are better that friends that lovers, i think they can work it out, but if there is a third party involve it is difficult to become friends, maybe in time, when all the wounds are healed.

Ouch. That's a tough question... I guess it would depend on the level of understanding the two of you have for each other. There are those who can make the transition from friends to lovers and back to friends again. But that happens to only a few. For the rest of the people out there, when the relationship ends, so does the friendship. It's sad but it's a fact of life. I remember someone sent me a text about friendship and love. According to it, if you remain friends after breaking up, it only means two things: 1. the two of you are still in love OR 2. the two of you were never really in love in the first place I don't know if that's true but for some it might be...

i dont think it'll be good to be friends after a relationship! i'd experienced it and it didnt went out good for the both of us! we tried to save the friendship after our 2 year realtionship but it didnt work out! i ended up hurt and unhappy! it's better if you just let go and never show your face again cause it'll only bring back the memory and hurt you again.

I think that two past lovers can remain as friend. This depends the way they broke each other. If they can trus each other i think they can remain as friends.

I don't think that's possible. Friends can be lovers but it's difficult for lovers to forget what they had and start being friends. I think the only scenario would be that those lovers stay away from each other for years and years and then if they meet again they could be friends.
