Adele is “Becoming Friends Again” With the Boyfriend Who Dumped Her. WDYT?

Should Adele be befriending her ex?

Here at gURL we’re huge fans of Adele for tons of reasons that we probably don’t even need to go into (except this is probably one). But she recently said that her and her ex boyfriend — the one that broke her heart and inspired her album, “21” — are reconciling, and we’re not sure how we feel about it.

Adele said:

“He changed my life, I can’t deny that. The album helped me get over splitting up with my boyfriend. It helped me forgive and I hope that he has forgiven himself.

As for where their relationship stands now, she said:

“We’re becoming friends again. It’s alright, I know what I’m doing. Enough time has gone by.”

Sure, those two have history, but do you think it’s a bad idea to reconcile with an ex? Would you or have you ever forgiven someone who’s dumped you? Tell us what you think of the situation below.

    I have mixed feelings. I think depending on the relationship, how long it was, and how serious it was all make a huge difference. I think if the break up was mutual, and good feelings were there on both sides, then yeah, friendship is totally possible. I think that space and time is still necessary but it’s feasible.

    On the other hand, if someone got dumped and their heart broken, then friendship isn’t gonna happen anytime in the near future. Its completely cruel and unfair to the person dumped for the dumpee to still reach out and initiate a friendship when the dumped hasn’t had enough time to move on. The dumped should be the one’s to initiate friendship if they want to when they’re ready, but they should give themselves a long time to heal. The dumpee needs to move on, and leave them alone and not be involved in their lives whatsoever anymore.

    For me, I sure as hell don’t want to be friends with my ex. He was a nasty scumbag; emotionally and physically abusive and it took me a long time to move on, and stop being angry about how I was treated…either way, he’s out of my life, and I never want to be friends with him or see him again. Just tread with caution if you’re going to be friends with your ex and realize you may not be as over them as you thing you are.

    I think it sends mixed signals to the girls who found a certain strength from the message that “rolling in the deep” sent out to young women who have been in rocky relationships. However, it is not our choice to make and I just hope Adele is being wise in this decision, seeing as this boy seemed to hurt her pretty bad. I wouldn’t want her to experience any emotional discomfort, it depends on her intentions, but I say the two should try to patch things up. Its good Karma =)

    i dont think being friends with an ex is a bad idea, if you had a really bad break up maybe you shouldnt be friends but if it was not that bad why not be friends, both parties will move on eventually anyway
