Do you think its possible to stay friends with someone you've broken up with?

If married and with kids I get being friends so that your children can have a healthy life with both parents.
But if people can do it without causing problems or one having hope they will get back together while the other doesn't, it seems complicated.

Personally, speaking I still speak to him time to time but I keep my distance because when I do it hurts a lot and I want something that won't happen now. I don't like reliving that feeling and I don't like doing that to him either. I think we both feel that way.

Yep. I tried staying friends for a long time after we broke up and all it did was land us in a limbo of sorts. Not together, but not not together either. It was hard.

Honestly I don't know how it can be possible to stay friends with an ex. Some people say they can and there are no lingering feelings. But I dunno... I'm not sure I'd trust a guy who says he is just friends with his ex.

I think that you have to be completely over the person in order to be friends. I could easily be friends with an ex now. But I tried being friends with my exes and it just made it so much harder for me to fully move on, even when I had ended things and knew they were no good for me.
