Are you still friends with any of your exes?

I just realized that out of my ex-boyfriends, I am only friends with one of them, and I think that is sad. Whenever people are in a relationship they usually say that if they break up they will stay friends, but it usually doesn't work out that way, and that's sad. Are you still friends with any of your exes?

of all my exes, im only friends with one. i dont see him that much though. we just IM or text each other but not all the time though. maybe the reason why exes are not good friends is because they've hurt us in the past and being friends with them will only bring back those memories, which i dont want. so let the bygones be bygones.. im focusing on the future ;-)

i am still friends with all my exes (though i don't have many of them). i still communicate with them and talk to them if given a chance. i ended my relationship with them in a nice way so i guess that is the reason why we are still friends until now. i stand by the though 'i remember the boy but i don't remember the feeling anymore'.

I would not say that I am friends with any of them. I am still talking to one of them, and he is on my messenger list, but it is more because he used to date a friend of mine for a few years (we go back a long time). I think it is ok to end the friendship, when you end the relationship, as it is so difficult to start a new relationship if you have a lot of baggage. I still care for my ex-boyfriends, and I will always wish them well. However, I have a different life now - a married life with kids, and I just think it is appropriate to hang out with my ex-boyfriends this point in my life.

Does not work out easily for me. I mean it takes time for me to make friends with my exes. But as time goes by and both of us are ok, the friendship we gained is still there. It actually made our friendship stronger.

I'm not friends with any of my exes. We didn't end on the terms that we would stay friends. There is one ex that ended that way and I do not talk to him. I do hear from him in a way since his mom emails me about once or twice a month just to check on me and see how I'm doing. Other than that no contact with any exes.

hi girl! we're both the same, with my exes when they walk out of my life, i didn't communicate with them or probably just hi and hello but more than that nothing. Friends to Lovers is possible but sometimes Lovers to friends just rare. Especially when the break up is not a mutual decision. In some cases it works though.

I just had 1 ex-boyfriend. When we broke up, I didn't want to talk to him, eventhough he sometimes SMS me in my birthday. or if I met him, he always tried to talk to me. but I just smiled. But, 4 months ago, I met him again in my friend's party. and when he tried to talk to me again, I also tried to have a little chat. Because, I thought that was unfair if I hate him, eventhough he should hate me because I had broken our relationship..

No, I'm not friends with any of my exes. I tried at one point but he ended up sort of stalking me and wanted a lot more than just being friend. The nerve! I was naive then too to think that we could be real friends. Unfortunately he wasn't thinking the same.

yes, we are still be friends and when we meet troubles , we will help each others . If you break-up due to your love break-up , you might could not be friends then.
