Depends if they were good to you and if you can maintain a healthy friendship with them.

It depends on how you met the person and how you broke. Actually my ex gave me the core membership haha we are in good terms. The only kind of love is left is as friends, nobody is even confused.
But only with her, with my other exes...well, we aren't in bad terms, but we don't talk much. All my exes were friends at first, so once the relationship was over it was important to keep the friendship!

That was super nice of your ex lmao 
I agree with that! That's how it was with the two exes that I'm friends with! Friends first, so why stop? :) But I could never have done that with my high school exes haha. There's a level of maturity to it that I didn't have yet.

Depends on how you break up I guess, if it was a mutual decision then I don’t see a problem but if one person still has feelings for the other I think time alone is the best way forward idk tho

Sure it can be hard to be friends with your ex since, well, you broke up with each other, but if both sides are ok with it then it's absolutely fine to be friends! In my own experience I'm actually still friends with my ex, or at the very least we can talk without it being extremely tense/awkward.

I think it all depends on how the relationship ended with them. If it was on good terms or both came to an agreement to end, then sure, why not? But if there's bad blood between the two, I would advise against it.

That's a really interesting perspective and I agree with that!
I'm kind of in the mindset that it's also okay provided that you've given time for wounds to heal/feelings to subside. People move on.
I'm friends with two of my exes and my boyfriend always makes me feel stressed about it lmao
