What addition could I possibly make to such a solid list? A Great Ex.
I think it’s awesome to have an ex that you trust and respect as much as you did while you two were dating—someone you can come to for honest advice and whose opinions mean something both because you know he cares for your well being and he has no reason to lie or sugar coat the situation. What’s even better is he knows you intimately and likely better than most of your close friends. Having a great ex is also a sign of positive growth in your romantic relationships. Like, how mature of you to not hate each other and waste nights ranting emotionally on Twitter about “#oomf”.
