17 Things You Should Ask Yourself Before Becoming Friends With An Ex

Being friends with someone you once loved and/or were intimate with is not as easy as they make it out to be in movies and TV shows. While some relationships are healthy and strong enough to change and adapt with time, most others are best left in the past.

So, if you’re wondering if you should stay friends with an ex, there are a few questions you should ask yourself before coming to any conclusion.

1. How long ago did the relationship end?

If it ended a few months ago, or even a year ago, maybe you need to give yourself time and space to consider the outcome, your feelings and the space between you two.

2. Are you still attracted to each other? 

Be honest when you ask yourself this. It’s okay if you are. But, maybe then, staying friends isn’t the best idea.
