Cupid’s Advice:

It seems that this former Hollywood couple are keeping things super civil, and we applaud them for that! It can be tough to stay friendly with someone you used to be romantically involved with. Check out some of Cupid’s tips if this is something you find yourself struggling with:

1. Distance can do miracles: The break-up process can be lengthy, but it’s essential for anyone that wants to get over their ex. Before you can even think about being civil with your former lover, it’s important to distance yourself for a little bit. There’s no way that you will be able to be friends right after breaking up — there is way too much sadness, anger, and hurt there!

2. Enforce boundaries: At the same time, it’s crucial to have some limits when being friends with an ex. Lines can get blurred at times, especially if you’re just trying to stay friends. An example of an important boundary to have is not hanging out one-on-one all the time. Base these limitations on your comfort levels with one another, and you should be good to go.

3. Make sure you have fully moved on: Before becoming BFFs with your ex-lover, make sure that you have fully and completely moved on from them. If you begin hanging out with your ex while you still have feelings for them, it can get really messy. There’s even a potential for you getting even more hurt than you were before. Make sure to take care of your heart before putting yourself out there again.
