We’ve probably all been there or said it at least once in our lives, that we want to be friends with an ex, that’s said when a relationship breaks up but isn’t so bad that you can’t stand the look of them it is possible to be friend . Is being friends with an ex really possible?
Like Billy Crystal’s character said in When Harry Met Sally “Men and women can’t really be friends… the sex part always gets in the way.” Whether you believe this is true or not sometimes it can be and sometimes it really is possible to be friends with an ex.
The biggest obstacle to being friends with an ex is all that the history and intimacy gained from sex with that person. When sex is involved, either past or present, it changes things and if you and your ex aren’t able to adjust your relationship according to the change of status then the “let’s be friends” line is just that, a line or platitude to keep the breakup from being even worse. Changing your relationship status from boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife to friends takes time and effort. You have to cut out the sex, rearrange the way you interact (i.e. leaving the flirting by the wayside) and actually make the effort to have a friendship.
