Dating new guy after breakup
Being friends with an ex is a complicated decision that can go both ways.
On one hand, life could be perfect even after the breakup.
#6 A lot of common friends If both of you share a lot of common friends and don’t really want to separate your friends or create an awkward get-together when you bump into your ex, perhaps it’s better off staying friends.
Of course, you can still stay friends and keep your distance, can’t you?
8 scenarios when can you be friends with an ex #1 You’re single and the sex was awesome Let’s face it.
Sometimes, you may have a terrible emotional connection with your ex. No harm’s ever come off two exes turned sex buddies with no emotional connection.
It’s a whole new relationship that you’re building together in the form of a friendship. There are many things you need to consider before you extend a hand of friendship to an ex.
Get these wrong and one of you may just try slipping a hand somewhere else.
