Cupid’s Advice:

Staying friends with your ex can be a tricky thing to accomplish, but if you make the right moves, it can end in complete civility. Check out some of these tips from Cupid:

1. End on good terms: Break-ups can be filled with anger, sadness, and hurt, but it is always a good decision to ultimately end things on good terms. At the end of the day, this person is someone you spent some time with, were romantically attracted to, and held a place in your heart. Although ending things positively won’t completely get rid of the difficulty surrounding the break-up, it will help with getting through the tough times. Plus, when the time is right, it’ll open an opportunity to becoming friends again.

2. Give it time: Even if this is someone you want to remain in your life, you have to give it some time — for both parties. It’s safe to assume that the break-up will be a bit tough for you and your ex, so make sure you give yourself ample time to move forward before jumping into a friendship with them. There’s no pressure to immediately have things go back to normal, regardless of what the circumstances are. Taking things slowly will benefit you, your ex, and the potential of being friends.

3. Have boundaries: When you do finally reach the point where you and your former lover are able to be friends, it’s definitely important to have some boundaries. For example, it would be a little odd if your ex were talking and hanging out one-on-one every day and still claiming to be just friends, right? Eliminate any possibilities of drama or mixed emotions/signals by simply creating a few limitations based off of your comfort levels.
