Cupid’s Advice: 

Rekindling any sort of relationship with an ex is tricky, whether getting back together or developing a friendship. If you think you’re ready and want to be friends with an ex, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Your feelings are platonic:  If you feel as though you have completely moved on from any lingering emotions and heartache that one was, a friendship could be your next step. Understand yourself and your heart first and foremost and only embark on this path if you are truly ready for it. You don’t want to fall right back into romantic love and wind up heartbroken again, so take it slow!

2.  You’ve set boundaries: Understand that even though you are developing a friendship with this person, they are still your ex. The history that you share with this former partner was once very intimate so make sure you are setting boundaries for yourself and them. Sit down with your ex and establish the do’s and don’ts of this newfound platonic union.

3.  You’ve moved on romantically: If you’ve been with or at least thought about being with other people since the split, this is a sign you are ready for the path of friendship. Feeling yourself move on romantically from your previous relationship is a wonderful and freeing experience so be sure that you’re ready for this interesting step. Many people won’t develop a friendship after a breakup because they still have lingering feelings for their former partner, but if you miss this person in a platonic way, go for it!
