Ghanaian comedienne Juiscy Vibes has advised separated couples who intend to remain friends to be emotionally matured before going on with the friendship.
She believes this is very important because if neither of the couples is matured emotionally it might end up ruining their current relationship.
Talking to Mercy Bee on e.TV Ghana’s Girl Vibes she said, “For instance, if you have a child with your ex then you will definitely have to stay in touch with that ex for better parenting of the child”.
She stated that some exes purposely flirt with you even when they know you are currently in another relationship, “cut them off and have nothing to do with them because they’re in to destroy you”.
“This is why you have to be emotionally matured because if you’re not, you will not be able to manage the friendship between you both and it might keep going against you every time you try to move on”.
Juiscy Vibes believes that not all relationships were meant to be an intimate one, “some people rushed into certain relationships when they should have just remained friends with the ex”.
Not disputing the fact that it not always advisable to stay in touch with an ex, she, however, is of the view that some relationships did not end on a bad note so the couples can still remain friends provided both of them are matured emotionally to keep it only at the friendship level.
“Some exes are worth keeping because they probably give very good advise, make you happy, make you laugh and as humans you might in one way or the other need the help of that person at a certain point in time so there is nothing wrong but it should not exceed friendship,” she said.
