Amanda Seyfried covers the March 2012 Glamour Magazine and is uncensored when it comes to dishing on her personal life.  The actress, who may star as porn actress Linda Lovelace in the upcoming biopic Lovelace,  admits that the next guy she commits to may be the one she decides to have kids with, and if not, there’s always her ex-boyfriend British actor, Dominic Cooper.  “My God, yeah.  He was my last real boyfriend.  We still joke about having kids, like, ‘If it doesn’t work out with other people, we might as well just have a child.’  And there’s a part of that that feels…possible.”

What are the advantages to staying friends with your ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

Who says you can’t be friends after a breakup?  Some people may think  it’s best to forget about your ex, but here a few benefits to staying on good terms with your old flame:

1.  Friends with benefits:  Everyone has their wants, but you can’t get them from everywhere.  Depending on the terms of the split, it may be convenient  for you to get what you want from your ex while looking for something new.  Be careful not to get confused in the process.

2. Don’t burn bridges:  If your relationship ended on good terms, try to keep it that way.  You never know who you may need in the future to talk to when you could use a quick “cheer-me-up.”

3. Patch it up:  Maybe your breakup didn’t end so well.  But, reaching out to your ex may be just what you need to help you move on.  Most of the time, when you receive closure from a past relationship, it makes it a lot easier to be cool with your former love.
