Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger were together 10 years before they became celebrity exes this past July. In celebrity news, the pair have split, but are still remaining friends, as evidenced by their embrace at the airport recently. According to UsMagazine.com, this wasn’t the first instance the celebrity couple was spotted together. They were seen together in L.A. purchasing a bottle of wine a few days prior proving that men and women can be just friends.

These celebrity exes are remaining close. What are some challenges to remaining friends after a break-up?

Cupid’s Advice:

Staying friends with an ex isn’t for everyone. When you have a messy break-up, the last thing you want to do is keep in touch. Cupid is here to help with some dating advice:

1. Lingering feelings: It’s really hard to stay friends if one of you is still in love with the other. Don’t try to be friends if it’s harmful to half the relationship. Only make it work if it’s what you both want.

2. Time: If you’re going out of your way to make time for your ex and it’s holding you back, it’s not worth your time. Don’t force the friendship, but see each other when it’s convenient. Only make as much time for them as they are willing to make for you.

3. New relationships: You’re not dating him anymore so if he starts a new relationship, don’t get in their way. Make less and less plans with him until you are in the background. If it’s too difficult for you to watch, axe the friendship. Your happiness is just as important as his.
