The end of a relationship is an incredibly tumultuous experience and it is difficult to come to terms with life without your partner. No matter how bad the relationship, you always have moments of weakness and think back to your time together and wonder if you made a mistake. As time passes, you tend to forget about the pain and begin to miss your ex, who was at one point such a big part of your life. At times like these, you always wonder whether it is healthy/good to be in contact with your ex, and thus we asked people what their opinions were.

How much conversation/interaction with your ex do you think is healthy?

About Exes

The ex is an ex for a reason

Talking to an ex is like walking down a slippery path! Of course, this is not true for all and depends on your situation, but be careful out there.

Once you feel you have moved on significantly then I guess you can talk to your ex once in a while. If he was a big part of your life, and you still want him to be then you can try to keep in touch with him. It could work as long as there is sufficient clarity among the two of you that you are in a friendly relationship

No i don’t think it’s healthy talking to an ex. Why to invite unnecessary trouble?

I think there is no problem in talking to an ex as long as you maintain a formal interaction.

Why not? I am friends with my ex, in fact we share a lot of good conversations.

Like rekindling a flame? Hahah..why not? I mean what’s wrong in it. If you are mature enough to keep the conversations healthy I don’t think there is any harm in talking to an ex.

It can be a dangerous thing to do. What if sparks fly again? A casual exchange of pleasantries should do no harm I guess.
