Why is trying to be friends with an ex so hard!
Give up, or at least don't try so hard, let him go and be friends when its easier.
Or were you being rhetorical?
of all the history/baggage you both have.
I have tried it in the past, but it never seemed to work out.
they're evil, callous bastards who stole some of your precious time on this earth, crumpled it into a ball, threw it into your face and laughed heartlessly at you ?
I get on with most of mine. The downside of that is that your current partner thinks you're a gullible sneak for that reason.
it's a bad idea !
i am currently trying as well. we were friends a long time before so i hope it'll work but when i see her i just think of the times we were naked...
and just like you can't be friends with someone you fall for, you can't have a good friendship with an ex on those terms.
impossible, for me anyway. i just end up feeling even more resentful than we did when we broke up. especially when it's clear to see that they're getting on fine with their lives and your still a useless mess.
ex's are evil. fact.
Because all women are bitches who rip YOUR HEART OUT OF YOUR ARSE.
Um... maybe you just need to give it some "time". I think i.s.t.deputy is right.
Your so right!
I just needed someone to tell me that!
Glad to be of help. Maybe I need to put some sort of 'agony aunt' type rating in my profile...
I haven't been able to be friends with my one ex. This is entirely due to me being an emotional wreck when it comes to my ex-girlfriend.
that then ?
Curse me for being asexual.
with one of my ex's. Because she, like me, has no morals and/or the ability to exhibit anything like deep feelings. I admit it is rare that both people feel this way.
I am not friends with another of my ex's because she is the exact opposite, and has the deepest feelings imaginable. She once got took away in a police car for attacking me because of them. It all depends, I suppose...
'Why do you have to be a heartbreaker...?'
now would be appropriate to interject here...
the reason the whole hurt thing happens with exs is because you care about them and shared something meaningful at one point. It is hard but you just have to deal with what happens and keep your head up.
