Do you believe in staying friends with exes?

I think this is a bit subjective. If you part on good terms and then sure you can continue to be friends with an ex but if it is a bad break up that isn't really possible. I think it also depends on what the relationship was like; if it's a lighthearted and chill relationship then it shouldn't be difficult to stay friends with an ex as you move on. However if it is a more intense relationship with stronger feelings involved, it might be difficult to move on when your ex is a friend. I don't think I'm someone who can be friends with an ex purely because I would carry residual feelings around if I saw them around too often.

Some people can, most people can't. I think it depends on many factors. I think if you have children with someone, you should remain friends or at least be friendly for the sake of the children. If you don't have kids with them, you really have to consider how it could hold you back from potential future partners. Most people I know would not be okay with their partner being close with an ex.
