I'm still friends with my high school sweetheart, and we had one of those breakups that becomes a legend in your hometown.


One of those.

So from me, a girl who's been there, to you, a girl who wants to be, here's all you need to learn how to be friends with your ex!

1. Be Honest about How You Feel

Be Honest about How You Feel

In learning how to be friends with your ex, you have to be honest about how you feel – and so does your partner.

If you still have feelings for each other, you have to decide if they're going to impede any attempts at friendship.

It's worse if one of you is still in love and the other isn't.

Think about the Break up

Absolutely! Have you tried to talk to them both? That might be the key to really getting to the root of their problems.
My best friend is having a problem with becoming friends with her boyfriend again. He used to be her best guy friend, and they'd tell each other everything. They dated for about a month, but the relationship ended about a month ago. Now she's trying to get back to the way things were, but she's having trouble getting past everything. And on top of that, he's going out with the girl he liked before her, so she's feeling really bad about herself. Is there anyway I can comfort her, and possibly help her move on? Thanks!
My ex & I are sort of friends, we talk once i a while. He helped me with an itunes problem. haha

Hey Ashley, That's wonderful to know! People always wonder how my ex and I are so close to each other and I tell them that I cannot imagine my life without his friendship and that we were always better friends than lovers anyway :) So yes, it is completely possible to be friends with your ex if both of you want it and if both of you are truly over each other. Thank you for stopping by and sharing that with us!
