Can that ever work?

I'm glad I stayed in touch with my ex she has been a great and understanding friend to me and offered a level of support that I never expected or felt worthy of after everything we had been through. I've had a shit year so far and she has been more than a friend and acted like a trusted counsel Sometimes I think I would have struggled without her frienship & support

I would honestly like to be strong enough to be friends with any of my close ex's. There's two 'flings' that I speak to but that was more because they made the effort to keep in touch and be friendly.

Got to say that my ex did a blinder at supporting me over the weekend.  He almost carried me up the beach when my energy levels flagged and had all my nutrition to hand exactly when I needed it.

Ha...oh the irony.

Ex from uni yes, still in touch with - although wasn't for a long time.

Ex with my step daughter - and never want to be either

Ex from last week...yes and I think the road will be very very rocky if yesterday was anything to go by.

I love my ex! He's a great & brilliant man. Always has been, always will be. 

We had our 18 year old son, both of us worship him, he's grown to be just like his dad, intelligent, hard working, humourous, totally lovely. I'm dead proud of them both.

My husband is best of friends with my ex, which make things a whole lot easier for all four of us. All of us work together as bus/coach drivers for the same company!

Long live my Nick! (ex)

I don't have any contact at all with my ex, we'd been together 17 years. That's all my fault though.

She said she wanted to be friends when she dumped me (although that could have just been words), but I was still in love with her and at the time pretty much ticked off every single chapter in the things not to do in the event of being dumped book. I think there is a second edition of that due out with a couple of new chapters along the lines of "what the hell are you doing ya big eejit" and "somebody stop him".

No contact in years now. I don't think we could be friends anyway, as despite the fact we got on brilliantly and very rarely argued I think there is too much of an emotional past for us to ever be friends.
