This is indicated by the results of the study, researchers from the University of South Florida. There is a separate category of people inclined to keep a friendly relationship after breaking up. Most often, the contact with the former is a reason to keep a fallback when parting with new partners.
According to a survey of 429 people, with around 40% after a breakup kept in touch with former lovers. 93,3% of them started to talk again only a few months after the breakup. For the most part, these relationships could hardly be called strong. Usually they were limited to rare meetings or a call. Only 13% called former a few times a week, says The Daily Mail.
