However, remaining friends with an ex could pose some problems of its own. It’s also a sphere of closeness that comes with its own special rules that you should be aware of.

Got a lot in common? Then stay friends if you want to

According to Erica Gordon, a dating expert and founder of The Babe Report, “[If] you and your ex had a lot in common, enjoyed similar activities (other than sex) and your personalities didn’t clash, a friendship just might work,”

Don’t hang around if you secretly want them back

“Stay friends if you don’t have an agenda such as ultimately getting them back, or an agenda of keeping tabs on them so that you’re the first to know when they might be interested in someone else,” Gordon explains.

“Many relationships actually started as friendships. Perhaps the romantic relationship didn’t work out, but if you started as friends, it might work to go back to being just friends.

“Always take some time apart to get over the lingering romantic attachment, though,” Gordon recommends. “Take as much time as you need.”

Did you get closure or not?

“In order to be friends, it’s also crucial that you no longer feel resentful, hurt or angry toward them,” Gordon says.
