Is it possible to be friends with your exes? Always easier said than done, it’s a tricky situation figuring out how to be friends with someone you previously dated. I brought on Miguel to help me tackle this and he explains how he has been able to stay friends with his exes.
While it’s definitely possible, how you go about it requires time and patience. It’s never easy ending a relationship, but when you want to keep this person in your life, it’s a new kind of relationship and you have to make sure both of you are on the same page. Miguel admits while he is friends with some of his exes, he is not with others and it’s important not to force a friendship when something is just no longer there.
I believe that while the length of time a couple dated is a factor, it is not as important as the depth of the relationship and whether or not the couple were friends before dating. The most important thing to remember however, is to have patience. Everything takes some time and even though you may not be immediately friends after, if you’re patient and you put in some effort with communication, it is definitely possible.
