Getting over an ex is never easy and staying friends with them can be a little harder. Here are five simple rules for staying friends with your ex:
No drunk dialling
Just don’t do it, you will only regret it in the morning. From screaming messages to inappropriate declarations of love at 3am, drunk contact of any form is not a great way to start a friendship.
Well not sex with your ex anyway. There’s too much emotional involvement there, and it will of course only make things more complicated.
Don’t comment on each other’s partners
Unless you have something nice to say, it’s probably best not to say anything at all.
All the best friendships have a strong foundation of honesty and your ex is no exception. So before embarking on the friend route with your old flame, make sure to talk honestly about why you want start a friendship with them. Remember you split up for a reason and if your reasons for a friendship are not genuine, it’s probably best to face that reality head on.
