Can you be friends with a EX?Page 6 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Can you reason with plausible premises within viable syllogisms? Can you value the good over the bad? Can your ex?

Sure you can be friends with an ex, it depends on the friendship part of the relationship and how the breakup went down, I have one ex who I chat with on occassion, (by phone or email) she has met my present partner, they have chatted a few times, it has become like a brother/sister relationship, she calls when she is feeling down cause I could allways put a smile on her face and make her laugh, there is nothing sexual happening physically or in conversation. I have a couple other exgirlfriends that are simular but not to that extent, in the means that we bump into each other in a store or mall say howdy, have a few minutes of conversation, and all is good. I also have a couple that i would rather see dead as well, and they probley feel the same about me. the little woman is in the same boat, having a couple that are still on talking terms and some that are hated.

NO...and why would I want to
if they werent right for me for a close relationship as a couple
they definately arent right for me as a friend which is usually a more emotionally intimate relationship.

I am friends with ex's. The love I felt for them changes form, but doesn't go away. Afterall there was more than just the physical relationship. I'm not in relationships with men of poor quality or immaturity. These are people I trust, respect and love as a treasured friend, who truly touched my soul with the sweet kindness they showed me.

I'm friends with ex boyfriends, no sex involved, no friends with benefits.

If I know we weren't meant to be than that's fine. I try to get along with everybody.

Yes, depends if you have forgiven and forgotten the reason why you and your ex quareled. Rash words can leave resentment and hurt, but if you can get past the hurt and see the good time you shared, then being friendly is possible. I am not saying a friend you can call but being civil to one another does happen. Look at my sorry ars, if I could do it anyone can.

In some cases yes as I am with a few but overall I am gonna say Hell No because which ever the one that messed up the ralationship will be the one who is wrong and will try to make it yyour fault. So why try to be friends with someone who don't want to own up to the mistake they made or don't want to deal with you anyway after the relationship is over with anyway.
