Dear Samantha,

Should you try to talk to an ex after a break up?

-Just Friends

Dear Just Friends,

Every single relationship is different. If you only dated short term, then I would say it’s safe to talk to them as long as neither one of you harbors resent. It’s best to not hang out outside of school, because you might find yourself thinking maybe they still have feelings for you, and that’s a dangerous road to go down. Maybe just talk in school and do your best not to talk behind each others’ backs. However, if it was a long-term relationship, it’s very important that you give yourself copious amounts of space before even attempting to be friends. Try this rule: for every month you were together, give yourself a week of space apart. This might seem like a long time, but it gives you plenty of room to wallow, cool down, and start to heal. There’re bound to be some residual feelings after a long relationship, and if you don’t give yourself that space, you might have an emotional outburst in front of your ex, and that’s the last thing anyone would want. Whatever your situation, give yourself at least a few days apart from them before you jump back in. And remember–being friends with an ex is tricky, especially if either one of you still has romantic feelings for the other. Tread carefully, because you know what they say: old habits die hard.

-Samantha
