Can you still be friends after a breakup?

I can’t speak for everyone, but for me, it’s a no. I have no desire to be friends with my ex. I already have a lot of friends and when I break up with someone, I need my time to get over the person. I believe we cannot move forward if we keep walking backwards. I don’t necessarily have any hatred towards anyone but I’m not going out of my way to keep in touch with them. Once the relationship dies, you become strangers to each other. You basically don’t exist for one another. I don’t prefer any kind of contact after a break up as it may impact my future relationships and personal life.
