Tamsen: Hey everybody Matt and Tamsen here. Okay today’s question, my boyfriend broke up with me but still wants to be best friends even though we were not friends before, what do I do? Matt: What do you do? You tell your boyfriend you can't have a cake and eat it too. It’s not happening. Tamsen: You don’t need a best friend you already have one. Matt: Like you said it you were never friends why do you need friends now? I don’t like this guy. I don’t like him at all. So you know what? He is selfish. I'm getting emotional actually. He can't have you in a different way because he wanted to change the format of your relation. Now he needs to peace with you but you know what you are going to give it to him. Tamsen: Yes, you can be available for that. That’s not fair. If he doesn’t want what you had before he doesn’t get all of a sudden switch who he is in your life and become your best friend. So what you need to do is move on from that while it’s nice to get along with the person that you were dating because you did share something. You don’t need to be as best friends, just assume you’re acquaintances, you get along, you see him on the street, you see him in a bar, you say hello but that’s about it. There is no going to get the else together. You don’t need a best friend like that, find a good girlfriend to go hang out with. Matt: Yes, don’t accept his invitation of friendship. Tamsen: This is Matt and Tamsen send your dating, love, relationship questions our way. We are always here to answer.
