Looking at Both Sides of Being Friends With an Ex Sameera Sullivan, CEO and lead matchmaker at Lasting Connections, believes that “in most cases, no, its not worth it to be friends with an ex. If there are any sort of hidden feelings or anything else along those lines, stay away.”
Can you really be friends with an ex?
Being friends with a former partner is something many of us neither want or feel is possible, but with the right communication it can work. These include: civility; unresolved romantic desires; practicality (eg working together, going to school together or sharing mutual friends) and security.
Why its not good to be friends with an ex?
Staying friends with your ex will lead to an on-again off-again relationship. Youll get back together, then break up again multiple times. These kinds of relationships are not healthy! If someone wants to truly be with you, splitting up would never be an option.
