Can you still be friends after a breakup?

Jai Jung Thapa

It depends on the nature of the breakup and what kind of relationship one had, so it is difficult to generalise. Nevertheless, if you have had a compatible relationship but you had to break up due to unavoidable situations, then being friends might work. However, most breakups are a result of incompatibility. To adapt from lovers to friends does not come naturally, it takes time for some and for others it never happens. Having feelings for your ex can obstruct your future relationships. Your decision should have healthy repercussions as happiness is what matters the most!
