Have you ever stayed friends with an ex? Has this dynamic affected your romantic relationships?
For today’s Girlfriend Chat, Deb returns to discuss what it’s like to maintain relationships with exes. Chrystal and Deb both have certain exes they are still in contact with today. Well aware that this dynamic does not work for everyone or with every ex, Chrystal and Deb dissect their friendships with their exes and the factors to consider.
Tune into this week’s episode of Self-Love for Breakfast for a relatable conversion on drawing the lines between friends and exes. Learn more about Deb and Chrystal’s experience with the subject, establishing boundaries, and the importance of honest communication.
- “I can’t talk to the exes continuously wanting something more with me.” (9:57-10:04 | Deb)
- “If you’re dating other people, but still haven’t let go of your ex and vice versa, then yeah, it’s going to be messy.” (24:11-24:20 | Chrystal)
- “You think you want something so bad and are devastated when it doesn’t happen. And that can speak to many different forms, relationships, items, whatever. Suddenly, something else comes along that you had no idea could be so much better. And it’s possible.” (32:12-32:32 | Deb)
- “If one person’s trying to get back together, no matter which way that looks like, that’s obviously not going to work.” (33:13-33:20 | Deb)
