Being friends with your ex always seems like a good idea at the time. But be honest, are you ever going to be able to have enough distance from an ex to just be their bud? It isn’t really likely.
I’m not saying don’t do it. I’m just saying to proceed with caution…it usually isn’t a good call. Take some time to consider what you’re doing and ask yourself some serious questions.
What Are The Real Upsides, Anyway?
If you’re honest with yourself, what are the real upsides to being friends with your ex? Yes, they might still be in your life, but is that really a good thing? Is this a person you want in your life? Is he going to add something to your life that isn’t something you already have?
