Cupid’s Advice:

Staying friends with an ex is almost always difficult, but it doesn’t have to be.  Here are a few tips to help you befriend your ex:

1. Remember your breakup: If the two of you had a messy breakup, then maintaining a friendship will be difficult.  It’s still possible to be friends, but keep your breakup in mind when you try to reach out to them.

2. Contact them: Even if the two of you don’t hang out or call each other on a weekly basis, send your ex a quick email every now and then asking after their health and well-being.

3. Rely on mutual friends: Transitioning from a relationship to a friendship can be very awkward.  Rely on your mutual friends to ease the transition.  Hanging out in large groups can give you a chance to chat with your ex without the conversation going sour.
