Is it okay to be friends with your ex?

“We can still be friends” is just like a saying on social media “The dog died, but we can still keep it”.
Even if she was an important part of my life for a significant time, there’s a reason why they she is ‘ex’, and being friends with her may prevent me from moving on.
For example, it would be really awkward after a break up if she texts me friendly messages. This would constantly remind me of the person who ripped out my heart.
I am not saying you should totally ignore your ex. The world is a small place and you never know when you will bump into your ex, so be mature enough to establish some level of simple conversation.
