Illustrated Guide: How To Stay Friends After A Breakup

Recently, a friend and I were discussing the challenge of how to stay friends after a breakup. She was caught between the time-honored dilemma of thinking it was the adult thing to do and wondering what the point of it would be. Well, I’ve heard you, friend, and I’m here to help. This week’s Illustrated Guide offers some helpful tips for trudging through a long, slow, pointless impersonation of congeniality with someone you used to love.

      OK… I took a cell phone picture at a museum… But just so I could remember it to look for better pictures later, I swear.


      Also, what is the point of being friends with an ex? This is coming from a person who has never had a friend turn into a significant other. I mean, what? Also, I only have male friends that are a million times hotter than me, so I don’t have to worry about one turning.

      If you weren’t serious with them, it could be worth it, but I can’t imagine watching someone I used to love get over me and date someone new, and inevitably more attractive. Seems masochistic.

      Sometimes you do, sometimes you don’t. Depends on the structure of the breakup. I let the person I’m with gauge the quality of the relationship with me. Nice drawings again.

      Wait, what’s wrong with museum photos? Is this like carnations being a cheap flower to buy like on that Sex and the City episode?
