To Be Or Not To Be.... Next question please.

OK, very short, sweet, and to the point. Do any of you honestly, truly, really, completely, partially, in any part what-so-ever believe that it is possible to be friends with an ex???

I don't see why not, you had something it obviously didn't work out, get over it and move on, yes the two of you may have some sort of history and it may be awkward at first but that is no reason why it is still not possible to be friends with an ex, that is unless of course you don't want to be.

It depends on many factors..How long did you go out, why did you break up, how long has it been since the break up, was it a serious relationship. Did the you see each other in compromising positions, that would make friendship awkward. have you two moved on in life? It's possible, but teh sitaution has to be perfect, or close to it.

what's the point of being just friends with a member of the opposite sex?

If you're a married man and you've got a female co-worker, you're not going to want to have an intimate relationship with her, now, are ya?

However, to answer the question - I'm inclined to say that it is not possible, unless the latter actually occurs.
Except for a situation where one party breaks up after being completely and utterly repulsed by the other, usually feelings grow when a couple spends time together; and even once broken up (for whatever reason - different values, some incompatibility, etc), deep emotional feelings can and tend to linger.

As they say, "When in Rome..."

yoni: i don't think you know how to use the word "latter" properly. or the phrase "when in rome." i have no idea what you're trying to say, and i stand by my previous position.

Yeah, Yoni, honestly, I have no idea what you're talking about. You did read the post, didn't you? Seriously, what the hell are you talking about?

it depends if there was really something there- if there was, i really don't see it as a possibility - love or even plain old attraction is not something you can turn on and off- you are not really gonna be just friends. although, maybe it will just be like any old guy girl relationship that usually has some underlying attraction even if its just "platonic".
