11.They will have your back always
You will always care about each other and, even though you may have hurt one another at the end of the relationship, that defensive mechanism will remain. It works both ways, so you know that at least one friend always has your back.
12.There will be no bumping into each other awkwardness
After a breakup, we always worry about bumping into our Ex. But when you two are friends there is no bumping awkwardness, now they actually go out with you.
13.You don’t have to delete pictures from your social media accounts
Accept it! It is annoying when after a breakup the first thing you have to do is delete all the pictures they are in.
14.You feel good about it
When you two are friends they are no longer there on your enemy list. Who needs that kind of bitterness in their life? You feel a bit good about yourself that you have both been mature enough to rise above the expectation that exes should hate each other and so you should.
