Well for me, Yes! Making friends with someone you loved in the past is okay, as long as no strings attached.
I agree with @MakkaPakka!
I believe you can be friends.
Because I am friends with my past boyfriends.
No string attached and just view them as my brother in Christ or seeing them as Jesus also loves them and died for them.
We’re good friends.
Not for me if there is ANY attraction at all left. For me or for them.
I’ve had several ex’s who became good friends after, and several others who could not be. Just my experience.
Hi there @theenaocay! That’s really how I feel. Maybe for others it is awkward, but it is a sign of maturity I guess.
It might be applicable or not applicable to someone @Sunami_Carpenter.
Hello, dear @MakkaPakka
Of course it’s possible, but it depends on each person and the nature of the relationship. It the relationship was to intense, ended badly or one of both still feels love it’s best to evade the real friendship part (not that they evade the other people).
But if both have moved on with their lifes of course they can be, even they could have a stronger friendship than with other people because they knew each other and shared a lot more, always with the maturity to handle the situation.
Kind regards, Luis Guerrero
True sir @Luis_Ruiz! I always wanted to be friends with my past even if we ended badly. But I do have an ex-bf that doesn’t want to be friends with me. I don’t know why, but I do respect him.
What is it in what I wrote that you do not understand about “Not for me if there is ANY attraction at all left. For me or for them.
I’ve had several ex’s who became good friends after, and several others who could not be. Just my experience.”
The whole thing is “for me” and “my experience”.
What are you thinking you’re adding? I didn’t say this was applicable to anyone!
If you want to know TRUTH from God, well then this whole discussion is off. In the Bible we are to marry and stay married and faithful to one person until death. After one person dies, THEN we are free to re-marry. In that scenario, there is no “ex” to be “friends with”. Better? If you believe in Christ and the God of Christianity, then you must believe what God says. And what God says is in the Bible. I was giving a worldly answer, since this is a worldly topic, not a Christian one.
I mean it might be applicable to anyone that they will remain friends or might not applicable to others to become friends after the breakup. In my topic, what I really meant for that is an ex-bf/gf scenario or someone who is not married like live-in partners. But thank you for your reply regarding my topic about life and relationship.
Hello, dear @Sunami_Carpenter
Calm down, it was just a misunderstanding.
Kind regards, Luis Guerrero
I believe they can be. If they fully resolved the issue they had in the past and everything is clear between the two of them. And most especially, if both parties know that what they have now is just friendship, and nothing more. Because sometimes it is not clear for the other party what is going on, which can lead to complications.
@kianna: there are actually instances that either the boy or girl doesn’t want to be friends after the breakup. It really depends on how they heal after the pain. In my part, I always wanted to became friends with my past. Why? I heal faster from the pain. Sounds weird, but that is how I overcome breakup!
Yeah, I respect that too. Wow, that’s wonderful to hear @MakkaPakka.
