Though she split with Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp in December, Rihanna and her ex were seen leaving Stringfellows Nightclub in London around 2 a.m. last Wednesday.  According to UsMagazine.com, the singer partied with Kemp and other pals during a break from her “Loud” concert tour.  After the breakup last winter, Kemp said, “She’s a good friend of mine.  We’re good. We’ve all got busy lives, and we’re concentrating on our careers.”

How do you get to the point where you can “hang out” with your ex partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you didn’t have an ugly breakup and it just didn’t work out, look at this experience as an opportunity to make friends with your ex partner.  Here are some signs that you’re ready to form a friendship with your ex:

1.  When you can talk about your dates: Being able to talk about your dates with an ex without feeling jealous or awkward is a huge sign that you’re safely in the friend zone.

2.  When you like them more now: Maybe breaking up was just what you needed to discover that you’re better as friends.

3. When you see them differently: In pursuing a friendship with an ex, you may grow to see them completely differently to the point where you sometimes forget that you were ever an item.
