Should You Be Friends With An Ex?
Why embracing this friendship can be important.

For some couples when a relationship is over, it’s over. For others, the end of a relationship is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Though becoming friends with an ex is not an option for everyone, a special connection can be made between those who are open to a new platonic partnership. Before you write off an ex after a dating relationship has ended, consider these 3 reasons why you should think about being friends with a former flame…

1. To Maintain a Connection


Just because the two of you didn’t end up together doesn’t mean your relationship can’t evolve into a new friendship. If you and your ex have shared various intimate moments together, you are probably still connected in certain ways. Why not let that connection evolve into friendship. There is a reason you came into each other’s lives and if you both want to be friends, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to make it happen.

2. To Offer Each Other Support

Especially if you both are currently single, you could be of support to one another in times of need. From anything from helping your ex paint their apartment to letting your ex vent about family issues, there are many ways that you can show your ex that you are there for them in their time of need. The two of you may know each other very well, which means that you may know exactly what to say to or do to help them with a task or struggle. Everyone can use a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on and your ex may be just the person to help you with minor issues or even a more serious crisis.
