I find the overwhelming percentage of couples that choose to cut ties after a break-up perplexing. Why would you throw away a perfectly good relationship simply because it takes on a different form? I find ex-boyfriends make excellent best friends. You already know their personalities and tastes, you have tons of blackmail on them, and humiliating them (all in jest, of course…sometimes) is a piece of cake. Your new besties and you can skip all the friendship-building boring banter and just chill and watch Netflix.
Almost everyone I have discussed this concept with skeptically asks how my current boyfriend feels about this “radical” post-dating doctrine: HE DEALS.
Making new friends is too much work…save yourself a lot of time and just move your past boyfriends/girlfriends to the “friend list.” It will make your life so much easier.
