The Top Worst Reasons to Stay Friends with Your Ex

One of the age old questions (along with whether men and women can be friends) is whether you should stay friends with your ex. Although you broke up for a reason, it can sometimes feel like a waste to sever ties with someone who played an important role in your life and a person who knows you so well.

However, you ex is your ‘ex’ for a reason, and it’s important to evaluate your motives for wanting to remain friendly. According to Psychology Today, here are the top worst reasons to stay friends with your ex:


1. You want to keep tabs on them.

2. You’re lonely.

3. You hope they will change someday.

4. You want to keep them on the backburner.

5. You still love them.
