Are you friends with your ex SOs? If so how long does that take to work out and not be weird after a long relationship?|
My ex and I broke up 8 months ago. We're not on bad terms, but we're not anywhere near the point of being actual friends. Our break up was pretty clean, and while we both were pretty broken hearted from it, it wasn't anything dramatic or horrible.
I really miss him being there as a friend. Our relationship while we were together was 95% friendship. We were like best friends who hugged a lot. That's exactly why we don't work as a couple, but we support each other really well otherwise.
I'm trying so hard not to write him an email or something about it, because I feel like that's a crazy ex girlfriend thing to do, and emails always come across so cold. I'm sure it would be taken the wrong way. I don't want to call him because his gf is really possesive and weird about him when he's on the phone. (Mutual friends of mine tell me she takes the phone out of his hand, and gets on and asks who it is. I don't want to start unnecessary crap between them)
Do I just wait? There are so many things I want to tell him, and want to know about him. Just normal friend things, what I'm doing, what he's doing etc. It's really getting to me to have lost such a dear person in my life.
ps - My betta is doing great! Thanks for all the suggestions and advice the other day.
