One tough muther is it possible to be friends with an ex boyfriend? What is the appropriate amount of time after a break up that you should pursue a friendship. My ex and I jumped into a friendship directly after our breakup but it still feels awkward.

Dear Lynn,

I think it is definitely possible but only when you both feel the time is right.
I don’t think there is any “appropriate” amount of time, everyone handles personal emotional issues in their own way.
My suggestion is go slow, pursue other interests and don’t let yourself fall back in to old boyfriend/girlfriend behavior.
Lynn, I think you are very mature about moving forward in a friendship with someone that didn’t workout as a love interest,
congrats and good luck.

Huge Muther Hugs,

One Tough Muther
