Think about it…how many of your exes are still friends of yours? Even if your ex assured you that “it’s not you, it’s me,” breakups are still upsetting.
You do not want to completely ruin what you had just because a romantic relationship didn’t work out.
You can still talk all the time, hang out, go see a movie… If your relationship ended due to infidelity, abuse, jealousy or trust issues, remaining friends is almost impossible.
“Don’t wait for your feelings to change to take action.
Take action and your feelings will change.” ~Barbara Baron Paul and I had been acquaintances for eight years.
