Let me start off by saying that I am not endorsing anyone to stay friends with every ex, nor am I encouraging anyone to remain friends with a dangerous, abusive, violent, or otherwise horrifying ex.

You simply can't remain friends with every ex you'll ever have, generally speaking.

I think we've all had at least one relationship where we've genuinely wanted to remain friends after breaking up, though.

If your ex is a good person, if your breakup was amicable or at least calm, and if you're doing it for the right reasons, however, then there are plenty of valid reasons to remain friends with your ex.

1. You Played Important Roles in Each Other's Lives

Short-term, long-term, it doesn't matter โ€“ some people simply affect your life more deeply than others.2

Your Ex May Genuinely Be a Good Person

Never meet up with those you were in love with once. Those encounters are not good: same as meeting someone who has passed away. Maxim Gorky

There's a very good quote by Maxim Gorky on this subject.. And I agree with it. I'll try to translate it from Russian the best I can.

Don't agree with the baggage part. An ex that is still in the picture can be of significant importance in the next relationship as well.
