People have been sharing memes, videos and advice to accompany their opinions about the trending hashtag. Briefly.co.za took a look at just a few of the top tweets regarding this new hashtag.
Take a look at some of the tweets below:
"I'm friends with all my exes. I personally think it depends on how you guys broke up. They are actually the best friends you could ask for. #ExesMakeBetterFriends"
"Exes are better friends because they have been there and done that. There are no what-ifs, more like what was and what should never have been. #ExesMakeBetterFriends. One of my best friends is a man I dated years ago."
"I don't know what an ex is, not saying this arrogantly or trying to act dumb, people were related to, do us wrong all the time and if we can forgive them and move forward in life why is the same principle not applied to those who failed to love us sincerely?#ExesMakeBetterFriends."
"I'm good friends with an ex. It’s important though that boundaries be set & respected & you have to be flexible as a friend because if your friend’s partner expresses discomfort about the friendship you have to step aside to accommodate their feelings. #ExesMakeBetterFriends."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported on a local man's amazing relationship advice. According to Ligamondy Mthembu, dating is not a competition and marriage doesn't guarantee happiness.
He stressed that a wedding ring is not a trophy to be won. He added that one should only marry when the time is right and not when pressured. His sound advice is something that should definitely be taken to heart.
Ligamondy's post, accompanied by a photo of a wedding ring, has received over 4 000 likes from Stayers who can't get enough of his honesty.
