Are you still friends with your ex?

Sangsara Sangsara
My ex and I broke up last July but due to housing issues we still live in the same apartment- though we have seperate bedrooms and haven't had sex of any kind (including oral) since december 2010. Is this weird? We were together for 10 years, but I WAS an STW for the first 5- in fact he was one of my clients in the beginning.
Anyway my question is do you stay friends with your exes and do new girlfriends/boyfriends matter?

Not best friends per se, but I we do communicate a lot. I am happily married with a child, while he is still madly in love with me. I kept in touch with him because he has some depression issues, and I am one of the very few ppl who have kept in touch with him that truly truly care about his well being. I love him, but not the way I thought I did. He's like.... a child that I need to make sure is okay. Does that make sense?

I have a few that I'm friends with and a few I hope to never see again, so it just varies.

My ex-husband and I ignore each other's existence. The only reason we have contact info at all is because we still need to get our stuff out of storage in another state.

When Former-Master ended the intimate part of our relationship, we remained friends ... which means I hardly hear from him except for a line or two every couple of weeks.

The rest pull the "I wanna break up but I'm too chicken shit to tell you" silent treatment crap so I never hear from them again.

My ex-boyfriend and I were best friends before we started dating and have continued to maintain our friendship even after two bad break ups. We always told one another that no matter what happened during our relationship we'd always be best friends no matter what and found that to be extremely comforting, even though he broke my heart twice.

I did start to doubt him a bit when he tried to interfere in my current relationship when he realized that I was trying to move on. That was a hard time for me to deal with. Being caught between two guys sucked biiigg time. I'm glad to say that we're still best friends though. We talk almost everyday online (as he lives in Europe) and still try to one-up the other by making the other laugh harder! We also always check up on one another and since he was my first love.. I do still love him. Just not as much anymore.

My first ex (who I honestly don't even want to count as an ex because our relationship was so short and so meaningless to them it shouldn't) and I...well, we never really talk. Like, there have been rare times when we would play the same game together and kind of be friendly? Except, well, I'd be more cold and standoffish and just in general kind of sarcastic towards them. Mainly because I didn't know how to act after that (still don't). But there were rare times when we would actually talk for a while and it wouldn't be super-awkward or anything. For the most part though, we're just friends on Facebook and I haven't heard from him since...almost a year. Don't particularly care if I ever hear from him again or not.

My other ex, the one I actually do count because it lasted the longest and I felt it meant a lot at the time, he just recently started talking to me again. Out of the blue. Just a year after he selfishly ditched me lol. But yeah. It seems he regrets what he did and would like to have me back, but I have no intention of doing so since the things he believes are just all kinds of wrong to me. But I still talk to him if he talks to me first, since I'm not really up to being all friendly again. It's more like, I don't hate him, but I don't like him, so I'm kinda indifferent to his existence.

I'm still friends with most of my ex's. Since we all lived in a small town, if we didn't stay friends, we wouldn't have any friends. Most relationships ended on good terms, so we could stay friends.

I haven't seen any of them in the past 5 years because my hubby and I moved, but we stay in touch online. Most of my ex's have been good friends with my hubby since high school, so he is not jealous of me still talking to them.

We are enemies. I'm a "love you with all my heart or hate you with a passion" kind of girl.

needs an other option. And it depends on my ex. I have a couple I hate, a few I'm on goot terms with, and some I have not contact with but have no feelings about either way. the one's I'm friendly with aren't "best friends" but we don't share a social group, so its not like I only see them in groups...

We do not communicate whatsoever. Some of that is me...but the rest is due to his actions towards our daughter.

My ex was a stalker. I cut off all contact with him.

I would say that we are civil, but we don't even live near each other or have any contact with one another. We don't hate each other though.

I wouldn't say I hate him...but I have resentment feelings and plan on never seeing him ever again, for my own sanity.

I am on good terms with the majority of my exes, but we don't communicate or get together very frequently. It is unlikely I would choose to live with an ex, especially since I am living with my long-term monogamous boyfriend now, but I might as a last resort. If living with your ex is civil and works well for both of you, I don't see why it shouldn't be a logical solution to your living situation.

We broke up last year & I wish we were still friends (or dating, for that matter!), but unfortunately, we rarely talk. I think it's probably for the best, since I'd always be wanting more out of any sort of friendship, but I still miss him every single day.

I hate my ex. He cheated on me and I cut off all contact. I think to stay friends with an ex for me would have to be like a mutual separation or something if things didn't work out.

I have one I hate and two others I am still friends with.

Hmm... A couple I'm still "friends" with on Facebook for example, and I will be friendly but there's not much of a friendship anymore. Some I'm indifferent toward and really don't care too much. And then there's one that was absolutely terrible to me and I hope never to see their face or hear their name again.

2 of my best friends are ex's, I stayed friends with most of them, and I'm civil with the ex-husband. There are a few I'd like to see get hit by a bus though lol

My first ex I just fell out of contact with. The second one were civil for a while after the breakup, as we had many mutual friends so we were still around each other. Unfortunately, he doesn't know how to let small shit go, which lead to a big blow up and him disappearing altogether. Good riddance!

I've only seen my ex once in the last year, but we were civil & got along fine--he came over to get a video game that he left. I wish we could be friends, but I doubt it would work out & I guess it'd be a little awkward.
