How to be better friends with your ex (because you know you want to)
Why should I be buddies with my old flame?
Are there reasons I shouldn’t let them back into my life?
Of course! Not all relationships are created equal, and sometimes relationships were ended for very, very good reasons. If your partner was incompatible, manipulative or abusive, it's not a good idea to get back involved with them — even if it's platonic, and even if it's at their urging.
