How do you remain civil with an ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

Maintaining a positive relationship with an ex can be hard. Sometimes, you have to remain friends for the sake of children, or any other loved ones who may be involved. Cupid is here to help:

1. Communicate when necessary: You and your ex don’t need to communicate with each other everyday. You shouldn’t know what’s going on in their love life unless they disclose that information to you themselves. If you have children together, let meeting together be strictly about your family.

2. Be mature: If you’re both two mature adults, there shouldn’t be any reason for the two of you not to get along. Forget all of the petty behavior and act your age. Don’t throw insults back and forth at each other – doing so will get you nowhere.

3. Move on: In order to remain a civil, platonic relationship with your ex, you’ll need to let go of all of your old feelings from them. All of the anger, hurt, pain, etc you felt toward your former flame needs to be put in the past. You’ll never be able to move on and find someone new if you’re still hung up on your ex.
