Cupid’s Advice:

Breaking up is never easy. Actually, relationships are a hard period.  After a breakup, the best thing to do is to let go and move on, but sometimes your ex will remain a part of your life. Cupid has advice on some ways to remain cordial with an ex:

1. Respect their boundaries: Once you are no longer with your ex-beau, things will change between the two of you. Some things that were okay when you were in relationship won’t be okay anymore. If you want to keep the peace between the both of you, you’ll need to give them some space and don’t cross any lines you shouldn’t.

2. Don’t judge his or her new partner choices: Eventually, your ex will most likely move on with someone new. It’s not easy to see your ex with someone, but that doesn’t give you the right to judge his or her new choice of significant other. If you want to remain cordial with them, you’ll have to respect their choices and keep any opinions you have about them to yourself, at least during the beginning.

Check up on them from time to time and see how they are doing. It will go a long way and it will let your ex know you still care and want to be a part of their life, no matter what your relationship status is.
