Is it weird to be friends with your exes?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I'm friends with all of my exes and my husband is friends with all of his, but our friends think that's weird and that it's not possible to be friends with your exes after you've been down that romantic road together.

Do you think it's weird to be friends with your exes?

Not weird at all.. I'm friends with my first ex husband.. When we parted everything was amicable.. We just grew apart.   I am now living in the same apt complex as him and my boys walk back to his apt on the days they wanted to stay there.. They are getting older so they stay whenever they want.   Brian, my ex, and I have keys to each other's apartments.  He is the Godfather of my daughter from my second marriage which ended in divorce.. He , Dean, left and has not tried to communicate with his daughter since 2009 when she was 4 yrs old.. My boyfriend, Ross, is a great father figure to Gloriana.   My boys names are Derek, 17 1/2 and Steven, 12.  Gloriana is 8  We are a special needs family..

No.  I'm friends with my last ex before my husband.  We've actually been on double dates together.  He attended our wedding and was a pallbearer with my husband for my dad.  My mom and dad were divorced, but you wouldn't know it.  They remained friends and walked in hand in hand and were announced together at my wedding.  My mom flew up from Florida to attend my dad's funeral.  I guess that's where I learned it from.

My last ex and I were friends before we started going out. We both admit the relationship didn't work, but we are friends now.

Nope, not at all to me. My exes (a whoppng 2) and I have ended on good note except one, but because we have a child together we are making it work.

No. I think if you can get along as friends, no reason not to.
