It makes you look confused
Why are you still being intimate with someone you told your friends you were no longer dating?
Just about a month or two ago, you were in telling your friends that you and that girl are no longer a pair. Now, however, there are date pictures of you both on Instagram.
How do you explain that without looking a little confused about what you really want?
You might hope for a comeback that’ll never happen
There is only a very thin line between being good friends with someone of the opposite, and actually dating them.
That is why many people easily transition friendship into relationship.
Therefore, if you go back to being friends with someone you were once dating, there is every chance that you might misinterpret some or many of their actions done out of friendship as an attempt to get back into the relationship.
It’s better to not put yourself in this position, than to do so and get disappointed and hurt again, because, frankly, they just might not be eager to get back into the same relationship that once failed.
You leave yourself vulnerable to be exploited
By staying friends with an ex and getting yourself worked up with the hope of a comeback, you actually do leave yourself vulnerable to treating them like a boyfriend or girlfriend, and not just a friend that they are now.
You might find yourself doing for them things you would normally reserve exclusively for someone you are dating.
