The new year always sparks some thought but lately I’ve been thinking, is it even possible to be friends with an ex? It’s just something I think about especially when friends are often conflicted with staying friends with an ex or not.
My own experience of it has been a disaster. Me and my ex split in April after a nice run of over two years and it wasn’t a good break up at all. I’m a nice person so I did end up staying friends with him only for me to want him again and for him to keep pestering me for another run even though he is the one who dumped me. He became dependent on my friendship and would try to make me jealous when he began dating other girls. I did block him several times before unblocking and finding phone calls and voice mails and friend requests on Facebook and I told him to move on and forget me. Since November he’s not bothered me and luckily he can’t.
But is there ever a possibility for exes to stay friends or is it a no no?
