I've been staying in touch with him which I'm not supposed to. We were connected through FB.
He was my ex. I ended the relationship a year ago because of the long distance.
At first, he did not want to let go of me because he thinks he still in love with me. It's impossible to continue as I don't see any progress in this relationship.
He left me messages but I ignored him totally. Recently, I opened myself to him, accepting as a friend. He wanted me back but I told him that I don't love him anymore and I'm in a relationship now.
I don't hold any grudges against him and neither does he when the relationship ended. We are now good friends just looking for some good company.
You can't be lovers for life, you can be friends.
Ps. Have any of your exes became your good friend?
