In a survey released by WE tv, most Americans say a clean break with an ex is the best way to get over the demise of a relationship, but over half say they haven’t taken their own advice and have stayed friends with an ex.
More than a third say they’ve slept with their ex.
Have you stayed friends with an ex? Did you regret it? Or were you glad to make amends? If you maintained a good friendship, how did you make that happen?
