If We can’t be Lovers than We can’t be Friends.What is a lover supposed to do, go with their heart or with their mind after they hear those dreadful words that everyone hates to hear: we need a break or this isn’t working out were finally said. So after all the blood rushes to your head and the last exhale escapes from your mouth, what is one to do? That person you’ve given a piece of your heart just returned it back to you and your left wondering if he is now your enemy or friend? L-O-V-E, the best friend of some and the worst back stabbing enemy for others.
So the RYL question is: can two exes from a committed relationship remain friends after a breakup? Now before you think of your ex or past relationships and a large REDRUM scrolls across your mind take the following thought into account:
- Isn’t it better to have a friendship than nothing at all? Say you and that person were friends before the relationship and the relationship didn’t end negatively, would you rather cut that person out of your life permanently or do you go back to being friends and at least have that person in your life on that type of level.
Or do you feel like Deborah Cox and RL in the song “We Cant Be Friends”, you can’t be friends because you still have love for that person which will make a friendship too difficult to be in. For instance, you greet each other with a handshake instead of a hug, you converse with them and your close enough to steal a kiss, or you give a quick formal hug and you smell a hint of their cologne or perfume and your knees grow weak, or family members and friends ask how your significant other is doing.
Are being friends just too difficult? Please share your personal feelings or past experiences about this issue and be as frank or blatant as you like and let’s see what the consensus are.
