How do you get over a guy you still want to be friends with?

I want to be friends with my ex because he is such a great guy but I am not sure I am over him.

Give yourself time and space to grieve for the relationship and get over him before you try the friendship thing. Can you see him with someone else? No? Not ready.

First, ask yourself whether you are strong enough to get into such a friendship. Think why you broke up. If you can't get over him, it means that you were serious about the relationship. Can you forgive him? If so, then brainwash yourself that there can be only friendship between both of you. I say find someone else.

Is he over you? If he's not, you need to tactfully stay away or else he will continue to persue you only confusing the situation. After a few months of very light talk you may be able to hang out again and maybe even discuss your new dating experiences.

There is nothing wrong with being friends with an ex, but you need to give it time, distance yourself from him in the beginning. If is it too soon and he shows up with a date, how are you going to feel? Time is the great healer so use it.
