Sex & the Single Woman: Friends(?)

So another relationship didn’t work out. I’m fine with it because honestly it just wasn’t right.

My roommates, however, are not crazy about the guy. Like the amazing people they are, they know I deserve better. This is why they don’t understand why I want to stay friends with him.

I chronically stay friends with exes and the guys I date. I can’t help it, I hate burning bridges and I would prefer to be on good terms with people.

Is this a bad thing? When a relationship is over, should I cut myself off from the guy?
