If past lover broke up and now they are good friend of each-other and say that now only friend of each other. Is it possible to having friendship with past lover ? ? ? My thinking is its not possible,if someones says that,so its clear that they are still in love or they were never in love.... I want your opinion about that......

i think it is possible. If you started out as friend. And Your relationship was based on friendship then it is certainly possible.

It is possible. In fact I have few exes that I am still friends with. It is not something like you broke up today and friends again tomorrow. Although there are rare occasions like that, in most cases, after a failed love relationship ends, it takes a little while to get back to casual friendship. The heart needs to rest a while and mend before you can give a good smile or talk in a casual way to the person that you used to love or to someone that used to love you. Time heals all wounds, however long it may take... and when that happen, you are ready to smile and laugh again even to your previous lover.

It's possible, for me anyway. It's happened many times. I go out with people who I like being with, who I have things in common with, who I would be friends with even if I wasn't dating them. So when we break up, it's possible to still be friends because we were friends when we were dating. Of course, it all depends on the circumstances of the break up, the baggage each person carries from the relationship, etc.

I feel there can be no friendship after love, as when love is over nothing remains.

I think its kind of possible becoz i m having such a relationship with my ex... but then again there is thin line and since one has crossed the line before the chances of u stepping over teh line of friendship become higher.... BUt i guess with enough understanding one can stay within limits

Friends can be lovers but lovers cannot be friends. It is hard for lovers to be stay together as friends again if they have worst reason that cause of their breaking up. If they still love each other they are not friends, they are still lovers.

I know its possible. I have a very close guy friend that was a lover for a short period of time. We started out friends, turned to one another in a romantic sense for a bit, then each respectively met someone that was more our "match" Now we are both married (to other people) with children about the same age, but still talk to each other and hang out on a regular basis. We make better friends than lovers and both realize it.

Either you love a person or you dont. There is no inbetween. If your love is strongly bonded you both will be inseparable forever. If the bond degrades it reduces first to friendship then vanishes in no time. Friendship is brotherhood between fellow humans. Love cannot be SHARED unlike friendship. How many college/school/childhood friends have vanished as time passes, But as time passes our bond called as love just strengthens.

it's possible unless you've done something really really bad to the person that he/she won't forgive you... i've gone through all of that....

friendship after love is an impossible thing, wen u give ur all 2 a relationship n part ways later, u only hurt urself n become enemies of each other, cursing the other one all ur life
