Are friendships possible once the relationship is over? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

Can men and women remain friends after being lovers in relationships and having babies once their marriages and/or live-in situations have ended? Being civil is one thing but claiming to be the best of friends in constant contact and communication; is this a reality?

Of course, there are positive, wonderful friendships that are mutually beneficial to both friends that should last a lifetime. But then there are other relationships that should end because they are negative, destructive, or unhealthy.

My question is, are friendships possible once the relationship is over?

Join me tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” as we explore this subject.

I’ll be taking your phone calls at 1-347-426-3645, press ‘1′ to speak with the host.

All “Conversations links” in this post make it possible to access the show.

See you on the air!

    No, its best both parties go their own way. When a relationship ends unless it is a mutual parting one is always hurt and the other is moving on to better. The one that is hurt will always be looking for the relationship to be more than friends again and when this doesnt happen its a bigger hurt than before. Leave and wish them well.
