How to be friends after dating
But it’s not always a fiasco, according to Lora*, 24, remained close with her ex for a year after their breakup.
The two even continued to hook up when they saw each other.
“I was crushed and told her I didn’t have anything to say to her,” Lora says. This has been the hardest year I’ve ever had, in part because of the mental anguish I felt from their simultaneous betrayals.” She is, however, grateful that most of tight-knit friend group voiced some sort of team Lora mentality.
Things went smoothly, but a week later, she found out the two were now dating on a Face Time call with her friend.I feel like if I just shut my exes completely out of my life, the hooking up wouldn’t have ever happened and the are-we-together-or-are-we-just-hooking-up-post-relationship crap that kept me from moving on never would have happened either. If you want to be with that person romantically and all they want is a friendship, the dynamic between you two will always be skewed.
