Your opening question - the one you always ask - is redundant. Everyone gives a different version of the same reply. Skip it!

I think if you guys left each other at a good note with no feeling attached then you can be friends. But if you still have feelings for your ex then you should not lie to yourself because you can NOT be friends. great podcast
