This week, Society Magazine’s Martin Bishop asked some people what they think is best – to stay friends with an ex or to move on and forget they exist?
I believe in the saying, Make new friends but keep the old ones, so I’d definitely keep her as my friend.
Matt Muntu, Lawyer
It depends on how you broke up. If the break up was painful, I wouldn’t need a reminder but if we broke up peacefully then yeah, I would keep him as a friend.
Just because it didn’t work out for us doesn’t mean we are enemies. I’d ditch her only if my ‘current’ girlfriend is uncomfortable with the relationship.
Francis Zahabu, Fashion designer
No I wouldn’t do that because some ex’s have the habit of trying to show the current person you are dating that they still have it going on with you. I wouldn’t take that risk.
Keza Gladys, KIE student
I wouldn’t make her my enemy but I wouldn’t make her a friend either.
Charles Kayitare, Salesperson
No, I wouldn’t bring my past into my present; an ex will stay where he belongs, in the past.
Raissa Umuhoza, Artist
I wouldn’t be friends with my ex because history always repeats itself.
Emmanuella Mukaruriza, Business woman
I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t be friends. If we were attracted to each other in the first place it means we like each other, so we would still be friends.
