Or can you friends with your ex depends a lot on the kind of relationship that you and your ex had as well as the way your relationship ended. The level of intimacy within your relationship has much to do with how long it will take for you as friends, as ever. This includes both physical and emotional intimacy. After you’ve gotten so close to someone, it’s actually easier to just not see more than him or her to try to flush and forget all the things that once you have shared. People tend not to remain good friends with their EXEs, not because it’s too painful, but simply because it is too difficult.
