Contrary to the fairy tales we have heard while growing up, not all story ends with a happily ever after. Some relationships end. We just have to accept that.
However, in the hopes of saving what's left of the shattered old flame, some tend to offer friendship instead as if it would compensate for the reality that it just did not work out.
Maybe we could stay friends?
Let's just be friends.
Or something along those lines, sound familiar?
Well, if so then here's 11 good reasons why you should slam the idea and cut ties 'til you're sure there's nothing left of old feelings.
1. Moving on is harder
Staying in contact with your ex as "just friends" might seem like a good idea at first, staying casual and civil as if you two never happened. However, it only prolongs the pain and the end that was long due. It creates a bigger gap in the long run when things don't work out.
2. False Hopes Rise
The thing about false hopes is that it's there, although either both of you or someone among the two of you would try to deny that. Letting the hope linger within any of you is self-destructing, cutting ties is wiser.
3. It might get awkward
This moment is bound to come. When it does, you'll both realize the torture you're putting yourselves into.
4. Friends are suppose to be open
You're friends, friends tell each other almost everything. With exes being friends, this is the part that's most complicated, how do you tell an old lover that you found someone or that you're feeling something within you that you never felt before?
5. It's confusing
Technically you're still together minus the label and a few other privileges. However being lover turned friends might get confusing where you stand as you have been so used to being a lover, getting it all mixed up and sending or receiving mixed signals is a possibility. You'll get confused where the line of friendship lies and where do you really stand in one another's life.

6. You'll confuse mutual friends too
You're not the only one who knew how you two used to be. It might be hard seeing you two together once again without assuming you're getting back together.
7. It's torture
This couldn't be anymore self explanatory; Tthink about it, you had a past, when she finally meets someone knew that she might consider being with you'll be there to witness it. Whether it's at your expense or the new guy, things are still bound to get messy from there.
8. You might be a fall-back
Knowing that despite the break up you're there and you got her back might be a good thing, but that can be taken for granted whenever things don't work out for her and someone new.
9. Your soon to be girlfriend won't like it
Girl rivalry can be a bit normal. Despite that she's an ex, your new girl wouldn't help but feel like she's still competing with your past.
10. You saw each other naked
When you've reached that point of intimacy, it can't be undone, or unseen and that just overcomplicates it all.
11. She was an ex for a reason
Why end your relationship if you're still caught up with being together? Choose and deal with that.
