What are some ways to keep things civil with your ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

 Sometimes when you think of an ex, you don’t always think of the possibility of being cordial with each other. One of the first things that come to mind is bashing one another every chance there is. Despite the history, whether good or bad, many past lovers are actually a bit amiable. Cupid has some advice:

1. End on good terms: Communicate thoroughly with your ex-partner to gain a full understanding on why the relationship has ended. This primary step will avoid a ton of confusion and maybe even make for a better ‘friendship’ between the both of you.

2. Control your emotions: Avoid harboring those ill feelings because they can possibly lead to major problems between you and your ex down the road. If you are carrying a load of baggage from the relationship, do not expect to successfully be civil. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as it sounds and will take some time to adjust. What’s most important is that you give it a try.

3. Don’t be selfish: Take in mind this life lesson you were taught at a young age. Also, steer clear of damaging or returning your ex’s possessions. There is always a possibility that he or she will later ask for it and if not properly returned, chaos may rise — what you are trying to keep away from.
