Question:Do you think it's better to part friends or just disconnect completely?

I guess it depends on the person and the relationship. I don't really have any evidence to suggest one way is better than the other. I'd like to think you can stay friends after a break up, but wonder if it doesn't hurt your ability to move on.

Answer:

I think it depends on how much time has passed. If its' pretty recent, I think it does make it harder to move on, especially if you have secret hopes of reuniting!
