i dont think anything wrong there,but after break up it is really difficult to maintain any kind of relationship with you ex girlfriend or boyfriend because in my case whenever i meet my ex girlfriend the old topics restarted and thats why we both not feel comfortable with each other now we are friends but not best friends and we are happy in our present life.sometimes she wish me on my birthday and on some festivals but now our relations are not good as in past.

yes we need to set limitations with our ex's ,as we are humans and doing mistakes are our habits.

Although I haven't experienced it personally, I do still think that it's possible for someone to be friends with their ex. Personally, I don't see why this couldn't be possible. Sure, I can understand that it might not be easy for this individual's current relationship. I can certainly understand how this may be difficult to do, but that's the way it can go sometimes.

I can't relate to this simply because I have no ex yet, but I think that maintaining or keeping friendship with anyone can really help in life.

Sometimes my ex write to me emails just to let me know how is he doing and I answer him just to let him know that I'm fine. We both moved on. I have partner and I love him so much and my ex knows about it. I don't know if you can call that friendship. Maybe. Just I have no idea why we keep inform each other that we are fine. it's almost 5 years. I have never seen him since that time. We never spoke why we broke up but we are polite and somewhat interested how we doing that's all.

I don't think that would be possible. But in my case,my ex never became my friend, or maybe because we don't see each other anymore. But there was a time when i thought of befriending them if given a chance. But so far, i didn't get the chance to have some chitchat with my ex.

maybe, or not because if you still have contact to them you will not move on.. its better you far away from them,

I wish I can keep the best friend relationship with my ex boyfriend. After all, we loved each other before, it is hard for me to accept that he left me. I know there is a saying that:If the two lovers broke, and they are best friend after the departure, it means that one of them do not love the other before, or they cannot be the friends. But I really want to be friends with a good guy.
