You and your ex had a great run, but in the end things just didn’t work out.

If the relationship ended on good terms, you might be thinking about staying friends after the breakup.

That is fine, as long as you both are on the same page.

Here are a few tips for staying friends with an EX.2

1. Are You Really Friends?

First, you need to know that he really does want to be friends with you.

There are a few things that may be going on here.

He may say he wants to be friends only to avoid hurting your feelings.

If he isn’t answering your calls or following through with plans then he may not want to be your friend.3

On the other hand, he may be too eager to be friends and is really hoping to blur that line between friendship and dating.

I broke up with a boyfriend about a year ago, and we're not exactly "friends" but we're on good terms.

I have had many relationships and in a small town its hard to avoid being around ex's. There are some its easier to be friends with than others. I recently broke up with a guy that I have as a captain for a team sport. We are friends in the sense we can play together no problems, call on one another for help when we need something and talk about stuff and we are cool. But it would be weird to me to be chatty with him for no reason and neither of us looks for dumb reasons to txt or call one another. I care about him and I know he cares for me but really we are better off friends. We have mutual respect for each other and I think that is key.

I have an amazing friendship with my ex boyfriend. We talk about everything, we have so much fun hanging out together and he knows me better than anyone else. No drama in our relationship but it ended because we knew we were both better suited as friends than a couple. We can say we love each other and know it's in a completely platonic way. He can hang out with my current SO and be completely comfortable with him and they get along very well. There's no jealousy. He's happy for me to find someone else and I'm trying to find the right one for him. I guess I'm lucky
