I don't get this at all. Why even bother wasting time on them? I always notice when people become friends with Exs somebody ends up getting hurt. Usually the guy.

Am I missing something here?

Because theres no point hating someone for the rest of your life.
or your still friends, and it just isnt working in a relationship

I always felt that if they were worth being in love with, then they're worth being friends with.

I don't apply it to all of them. Most of them weren't worth loving. However, there are a few that are still genuinely good people, and are therefore worthy of my time. Though, for the most part, we're not as close as we used to be.

Agreed, if the relationship actualy went past the physical and ment anything at all people like to carry on with a relationship even after they split...

Why oh why? *hopes that someone catches the time signaturey, tooly reference*


And yes, because they might still be friendly and nice people that you don't want to loose contact with.

Unless they cheated on you.

I've never had a girlfriend, but it seems to me that an awful lot (I'm not saying all, but a lot) of teenage relationships don't really mean anything. It's just realising that you're friends with a girl, and you can go a bit further and turn your friend into something to share saliva with and stick your **** into. Then 2 weeks later, you hate each other. What's the point?

I can understand if you truly have feelings for one another. I respect that. But it seems like so few people really do. I know guys who change girlfriends every month or so. Do they just get tired of having sex with the same person? Stupid, if you ask me.

I'd rather be good friends for a long time, than in a relationship for a month.
#19
With most of my relationships, the girl and I started as friends first. We would say "hey, we like each other, why not give a relationship a shot?"

Well, eventually we would discover that we worked a lot better as friends than as a couple, and would go back to being friends. Not really a big deal.

Exactly, and if you thought at one point that a relationship could work then you should at least be able to tolerate each other's presence. Unless it was a really messy breakup or something.

Because for me to have gone out with them in the first place there must have been something there.
Other than the first one, I don't want to see her ever again.
The last one is cutting it fine too.

i'm going to say it's because somebody always feels like there's something worth salvaging, and decides that it's best to drag the other person down with them.

Personally, I very rarely do because I always end on bad terms with boyfriends. That said, there are two who I still count as friends. Or did, when I used to see them at all. I see everyone as either a friend or partner, and it's disconcerting switching so suddenly between the two =/

Because when we were together for the 2 years. We were becoming more like best friends rather than a couple in the last 2 months.

That's what I see in it. It looks like that's all there is. At my school, when new students come at the beginning of the year, within maybe 2 weeks, they're in a relationship, making out in the corridors at any given opportunity.

WTF?

Maybe it's just me cos I'm antisocial, but in 2 weeks, I can't even establish a good friendship, nevermind romantic relations.

And I heard that even when you're "going out" (which as I learned, has nothing to do with taking a girl out to dinner or the movies) it's a month or so before you begin to kiss. But in 2 weeks?

Generally I can't become friends with them afterwards... I always find I end up disliking them after a break-up (yes, even if it's me doing the dumping).

I can still talk to them and be totally civil, I just can't hang out with them or confide in them like I could when we went out. I honestly don't even feel a need to be friends. We dated, we had sex, we broke up, why does that mean we have to be friends all of a sudden? Guilt?

I got 3 months of sex with my ex after we split up . The sex after we split up was better than before .

I still spend quite a bit of time with her during school hours (she goes out with someone else now, and does nothing but complain about him) - and I know she still wants me . It's only a matter of time.

Well, most people I know have been togheter for like 1-2 years. But then you have the "preps" and the "cool" guys who are togheter for like a couple of weeks and then split up.

So for the guys who are great friends with Ex's

I'm guessing you deep down want them back?

Yes, I want to go back to being miserable.

In some instances, people really do make better friends than girlfriends, and for those people, I can manage to be friends with.

because you dont have to hate people if the serious relationship fails, and because there was something that kept you together besides sex, so if that is preserved then a great friendship can be formed
