So your ex girlfriend just wants to be friends – at least that’s what she’s told you, right.
You miss her terribly and would rather see her as a friend than not at all but IS it the right thing to do if you want to get back together?
The worst thing that can happen after a painful and heartbreaking break up is getting stuck in the “friend zone”.
It sounds like a good idea at the time but ultimately it’s not.
It’s a very common question that all guys ask after a break up.
Should I stay friends with my ex or should I sever all ties?
As well as those questions there are some other questions first that you honestly need to answer that are perhaps more important.
Chances are at some point your ex girlfriend will start dating other guys, if she’s not already. Will you be able to watch her actively dating other guys that aren’t you??
If she starts dating guys or one guy in particular she’s also going to start being affectionate to them as well. If you stay in the friend zone you’ll be seeing her kiss and hug other guys right in front of you. Will you be able to handle it?
Let’s say she considers your advice really important and is one of the things she really likes about you. Will you be able to offer her impartial advice when she comes looking for a shoulder to cry on or some dating advice?
But perhaps the very biggest question of all is –
DO YOU STILL LOVE YOUR EX GIRLFRIEND AND WOULD YOU RATHER GET HER BACK THAN REMAIN JUST FRIENDS?
It’s really important that you are honest at this point.
Most guys want another chance with their ex girlfriend, especially if they weren’t the ones that broke it off.
There is nothing wrong with wanting your girlfriend back in your arms but at the end of the day staying friends is NEVER the way to do it!!
If you choose friendship what happens is she starts seeing you as a friend, rather than an ex boyfriend, and you become a shoulder to cry on rather than the love of her life.
But you know what, there are some tips and techniques that have proven to be effective even if you’ve been inadvertently placed in The Friend Zone.
