Does anyone think that people can 'still be friends' after a relationship/sex? I live with the utopic dream that I could be friends with the guys I used to see, but it hasn't yet happened. They're usually civil, but cool. What is it that makes associating with your ex's so awkward and uncomfortable? After all, neither of the two are worse than what they were before the relationship, it just didn't work out between the two of them.
