Breaking up with someone you have been in a long-term relationship with is one of the hardest things that you can go through. It is hard to suddenly stop contacting someone and watching them leave your life after they have been a big part of it.
And even if splitting seems like the wisest choice for both of you, it doesn’t mean that your feelings will suddenly stop existing – buckets of love would still be pouring down your heart all the time.
This is why the majority of us start considering being friends with them, whether after the breakup or after months of splitting. Why? Because we still can’t imagine our lives without these people and having them as friends seem better than not having them at all…
Well, all psychologists agree that this concept is not really a good idea and we are here to tell you all the downside of befriending an ex. After all, you should keep in mind that they are an ex for a reason that is probably applicable to friendships, too!
