“I don’t know why my ex wants to be friends so badly, but it’s starting to annoy me!“
“We broke up a few months ago, and I’ve been trying to move on, but he still texts me every day asking to hang out or be friends. I know he’s not trying to come back into my life because he doesn’t want that type of commitment anymore, so what is his motivation?
I can’t see why he would want friendship from me, considering how much we fought when we were dating. The only thing I can think of is that maybe he doesn’t have anyone else in his life and needs someone who will answer when he texts them. But why text me? It feels like a waste of time for both of us.”
I know exactly how you feel. So keep reading to get answers!
For some people, ending a romantic relationship is more about anger and hurt than the person they are breaking up with. They may want to end the relationship but still be friends. This attitude can be confusing for others as they don’t know their expectations for friendship.
There may also be underlying issues in the relationship that are unresolved. For example, one partner may have been cheated on or simply growing apart from their partner over time and didn’t want to break up but knew it was inevitable. Sometimes there are emotional or mental health issues that lead to a breakup as well.
What Does It Mean When Your Ex Wants To Be Friends?
When you have been in a long-term relationship and break up, it is natural to want still to be close and support each other. Many people choose to maintain friendships with their exes because of the bond created in the past.
If your ex wants to be friends, it may not mean they are not over you completely. They may need extra support during this difficult time. It is important to note that if your ex wants to be friends with you but not date you, they might still have lingering feelings for you, which could lead them back into a romantic relationship with you at some point.
It is also possible that some people want a new type of friendship after a breakup because they fear being alone or are afraid of starting something new right away.
What Do You Do When Your Ex Just Wants To Be Friends?
I’m not sure how many people out there know what they’re supposed to do when their ex-partner wants to be friends. So what kind of behaviour should you show? Do you still talk about your feelings or just about work?
We all know it is never easy to move on after a breakup and even more complicated when your ex asks to be friends. It sounds like an innocent enough request, but if you’re not prepared for this scenario, it can turn into something that will scar you for life.
You might think that at least the pain will lessen with time, but what you need to understand is that any contact with your ex over a long period can lead up to emotional dependency and make it harder for him to let go.
A close friendship can still lead to feelings of love or rejection, later on, so think carefully before agreeing on being friends with your previous partner. I would recommend talking with your ex and figuring out what they want before making any decisions about how you should proceed in this situation.
Can You Be Friends With Your Ex If You Still Love Him?
Yes, it is possible. You can be friends with your ex if you still love him. But it is not going to be easy. You will need to work hard at being friends again, and the two of you will have to spend time together.
It would be best if you understood that the breakup was hard on both of you and that there may be feelings of loneliness or sadness lingering from time to time; these feelings will subside over time as long as they are dealt with appropriately.
Some people get back together with their exes, but this is not advisable because it may re-open old wounds and bring up feelings better left in the past. If you are an emotional person who has a hard time letting go and moving on, then this is not a good idea for you either. It may make things worse for both of you in the long run, so think about what will happen before making any rash decisions!
If you are still in contact with your ex, it is best to maintain a platonic relationship. You can also choose not to interact with your ex by blocking some accounts on social media. However, if you are still in contact with him and feel like he is trying to get back together with you, you should re-evaluate the situation.
