I think you answered it yourself. Just tell him that you don't want to be boyfinnd and girlfrind anymore, but you would like to be friends. Depending on the boy, he may or may not like this. I found that younger guys don't care for this too much. I know when I was 18 or 23 I really didn't care to be friends after dating. By the why, I am 50 now. If this does work for you and your friend, just remember your new boy freind may not like you talking to your old boy friend. And the same for your boy friend, his new girl friend might not like him talking to you. The jealous factor. This is a very difficult thing to do. On the brighter side, this can work, I know for a fact. I was married for 9 years to my 1st wife and we are stil freinds today even after 12 years. We even work at the same place as well. My wife is stil friends with her ex husband also. Good luck to you and I hope that every things works out for you.


You be honest with him and tell him why its just not working for you anymore and express your desire to want to remain friends. If he rejects the idea then he's just not mature enough to handle it and let it go.

It may take a while, but if you try everyday, you will eventually be able to break up with your boyfriend and find a new one

You should be able to talk about everything. A boyfriend should be your best friend as well as your boyfriend. So you should be able to talk about planes, cars, girls, boys, family, friends, and everything inbewteen.

A blunt object will be able to break the barrier of water. It might still hurt a little but it will still work.

Only if you were friends before the break up. If you started dating that person when you met them, then you probably won't be able to be become/stay close after the break up because of what you went through.

You can try to be friends with him, because guys are also effected greatly by hurt. After friendship you may be able to have your boyfriend back.

You have to cut the ties and keep your distance as to allow him time away to be able to deal with his feelings.

you mean not be really fretil, or you or him might not be able to have kids.

Depending on the reason for your break up if you have solved that then just tell him that you still like him cause if you dated him you should be able to be honest with him so just say you never got over him and he will let you know how he feels because if he liked you once he can like you again! Good luck

try to get over him.. you wont be able to do that if you will still do the things that you are used to doing before when you are still together.. that is what you called moving on.. move on to a new life that would give you much relief!! GO OUT!!!! When I had to get over my ex boyfriend, I went out with my girl friends (if ur a guy go out w/ur guy friends) and got my flirt on!!!! It's so liberating....

You can still view limited information such as amount of friends and limited friends, depending on their limits on what non friends can view, but you cannot write on their wall or do most of the things that you would be able to do if you were their friend.

Yes, you still will be able to see him without any problems.

Dont worry about your teeth. You were born this way, baby.

If we worked out, do you think we would still be together? or Why do you think we werent able to make it work?

you need to be able to help your best friend if it's hard and stand up for them.

Your boyfriend should be able to decide on what is best. And to stick to who is best for him. Talk to him.

When a boyfriend breaks up with a girl simply because she doesn't have sex with him as often as he would like it is not love, but selfishness and immaturity. Sex is a beautiful thing when you are in love, but your boyfriend is using you to his advantage. Love is about sharing and not hurting the one you love. If you were smart you would break up with him! There is someone better out there that you will meet and treat you with the respect you deserve. Your boyfriend simply isn't good for you.

ask him duhhhh.. Well if you still feel the same way as you did b4 and if you think he feels the same then i guess you will be able to tell..

if your friends you should be able to find out if she has a boyfriend(....your in 6th grade, im in 9th and i don't have a boyfriend....) and you could find out just by joking around, like saying, oh i bet your boyfriend ate your homework, or what everwould be like an inside joke of somesort, that way it wouldn't be as acward. you could even ask one of your friends if she has a boyfriend, hopefuly you ask a trustworthy friend.

I think people should be able to date their best friends, if they both like each other and they both know they like each other then there is no problem if you break up then that might make your fiendship from there on a little rocky bu if he is a true friend and you break up, you will stay friends.

If he's obsessed with you, you won't be able to break up without hurting him. However the earlier you tell him the better, and you can try to make it hurt as little as possible at least. First of all, do it personally, not over mail, text or instant messenger. Face to face and honest, don't make up lies as to why you're leaving him. Don't tell him you can still be friends; chances are it will be really awkward even if you manage to stay friends if he was obsessed with you.

Well, it depends on how big your crush is- always think of the future of your friendship. If you break up, will you still be able to have friends? I would suggest a wing man/girl- someone to find out if he feels the same way about you. :)

You might be able to get your ex-boyfriend to start talking to you again by being honest with him and apologizing for anything that you might have done to hurt him. This could work even if you are not necessarily looking for another relationship and just want to be friends.

You will be able to tell if he truley loves you. Don't just stand for the standard "I love you" its a surefire way to break your heart if you fall into it too soon.

No! That will make you seem like the worse person even if it is the other way around. After a break-up you want to act like it hasn't really affected you. In other words he'll probably think it's pretty sad that you went to the trouble of taking him off your friends list instead of being able to move on and get over it.
