Tamsen: Hey everybody, Matt and Tamsen here. Okay, today is topic and I love this one because you really don’t agree on it and we never will. Should you stay friends with your ex? I say yes, I have plenty—all of my Facebook case I have plenty of guys that I have gone out with but I'm no longer with that our ex boyfriends and I'm still very good friends with. Matt: That’s very true, she's actually-- Tamsen: And then no relationship except for friendship. Matt: She's actually made me become friends with her ex, she's ex boyfriend. Tamsen: Matt friends with my ex’s. Matt: And I think that the purpose. Now, do not be—don’t remain friends there's no absolutely point it’s a waste of time. What is the purpose? Tamsen: You had a relationship with this person and you’ve shared some significant part of your past even if it was for small amount of time for whatever reason it didn’t worked out so why wouldn’t you be friends with them they probably know a lot more about than a lot of other people do. Matt: I'm not really understand this because every girl I ever went out with never talk to me again after we broken up so know we have that opportunity— Tamsen: Because there's a different between you can be friends with your ex because they won’t speak to you. Matt: You know, when you do that— Tamsen: And should you be. Matt: When you do that I think that sometimes one of the parties wants more than just friendship and it gives sometimes you and shave the boundaries and that can be a bad situations. So you know what, when you break up it’s a clean break it’s call a break up because the relationship breaks down and there is no more so what's the purpose? Tamsen: I don’t agree I think you can still be friends to your ex. Let us know what you think.
