Have you ever stayed friends with an ex?
It sounds like a great idea until someone’s feelings get hurt AGAIN and then it gets awkward and ugly.
There’s no easy transition from “I’m in love with you” to “let’s be buddies”.
I have actually remained friends with quite a few of my exes.
What can I say? Like my Mom, I have a hard time throwing some things out.
For those of you who don’t know, she’s a border-line hoarder. ILYM 🙂
This ONLY works successfully if you STOP SLEEPING TOGETHER.
I know this part might be really hard for some of you.
So here are some pointers on NOT being an emotional whorebag:
- Do NOT get drunk with your ex.
Not alone, not at a party, not in ANY place where you can achieve penetration.
Which when you think about it, is pretty much anywhere.
So dude, DON’T GET DRUNK WITH YOUR EX.
- Give it some time man!
You have either broken someone’s heart or had your heart broken.
Grieve! Cry! Break shit!
Do NOT pretend everything is sunshine and roses.
You’re allowed to admit that and take some time
Or allow your ex to do the same.
This actually makes you an adult. Just make sure your break-down is done in private and STAY OFF FACEBOOK!
- During your time out:
DO NOT CALL THEM
DO NOT TEXT THEM
LEAVE THEM THE FUCK ALONE
If you have to; write their number down, put it somewhere safe, and delete it!
It’s never easy at first, no matter where you fall on the broken-hearted scale.
But it’s always a lot easier, IF YOU STOP SLEEPING TOGETHER!
And dude, seriously, delete that fucking number!!
