4. There cannot be friendship between you and him
If you manage to stay friends after your breakup and it feels natural and comfortable, then do not ruin it. However, it is not an absolute must to stay friends with your ex if seeing and meeting the person is painful and unpleasant. Out of sight, out of mind! And you’d better avoid talking to your ex on the phone. Do not e-mail him and try to be distant. Close the door behind and let some other person enter your life. You need to distract yourself from your previous relationship.
