In an ideal world, when you have to go through a break up with someone, you could stay friends with them afterwards and maintain an amicable and civil relationship. Of course, if you've ever been through a few splits of your own, you will know that this isn’t always the case! Sometimes, no matter how much you think it would be beneficial, being pal with a former boo just isn’t on the cards. Look out for these signs you are not ready to be friends with your ex.
1. Still Hurt
If you still feel hurt from the split, then being around your ex and pretending to be fine with the situation is only going to prevent that wound from healing. It is almost like picking at a scab and not letting it properly grow. You might be fine in a few months, but for now, you need to give yourself time.
