Remaining friends with an ex is an idealistic pursuit, sure, but it’s completely devoid of logic. Take it from me, I was supposed to get married in October. Now, any and all contact between my ex and I is done through a lawyer, per my request. Actually, come to think of it, I’ve never remained friends with any ex ever. Though that might be more of a me-thing, I remain firm that in most circumstances, no, you absolutely, positively should not pursue any type of friendship with an ex.
