In celebrity news, Brad Pitt attended his ex-wife’s star-studded birthday party. What are some rules of thumb for keeping the peace with your ex?
There’s no reason you have to completely cut your ex out of your life if you can see yourselves being friends down the road. This is especially true if you have children or the same circle of friends. Here are some ways you can keep the peace:
1. Keep it simple: Don’t bring up anything from the past, and keep your conversation pleasant. There’s no point in rehashing old fights when you have no intention of getting back together. Keeping things surface level is usually best.
2. Avoid a dating atmosphere: Avoid places that bring back old memories. There’s no reason to introduce nostalgia into the picture, and you don’t want to be at a place with clear date vibes. Keep it casual.
3. Keep yourself in check: It’s okay to question yourself about old feelings about your ex. This is why giving each other space if you both need it is fine, especially if you run in the same social circles or have children together.
