How do you remain civil with your ex after a heated breakup?
Heated breakups are not in any sense enjoyable for anyone. They’re messy, peoples’ feelings get crushed, your friends and family get dragged into the relationship, you end up on different sides of the universe. Although you may not want to remain civil with your ex, you most likely share friends, are close with their relatives, have the same favorite restaurants, and may have kids together. Cupid has some advice on how to stay civil:
1. No bad-mouthing: Heated break ups tend to leave both parties bad-mouthing one another all across town. Although this may release steam and bottled up emotions, this is no way to act if you want to remain civil with your ex. Instead of spreading grotesque rumors or spilling your ex’s deepest darkest secrets, say nothing at all. Yes, this will be challenging, and it will probably suck. However, no bad-mouthing means you both can attempt to remain civil.
2. Ground rules: You need to set ground rules for yourself, and for your ex. Depending on how heated the breakup was, you may need to split up areas. You get a certain amount of your favorite places, and they get the rest. This means no confrontation or communication at outside areas. If it is necessary, no communication whatsoever may need to be put into play. Depending on you and your mate, you make and adjust the rules.
3. Take it slow in new relationships: Keeping it civil with your ex isn’t jumping straight into a new relationship. Of course you want nothing to do with your ex, and want to wash him from your memory. However, this is not easy nor is it possible. Take it slow when you’re getting in to new relationships. It is not necessary to delve into some new person when you have unresolved business with your ex.
