I have been pondering this situation for many miles now. When a relationship ends, is it ever really possible to just “be friends” and actually have a friendship?
According to Checkov, you couldn’t be friends with a woman until you’d been lovers first. But haven’t we all killed friendships when that kiss happened accidentally-on-purpose and in the words of Dr. Evil to Frau Farbissina, “It got weird didn’t it?” So is it possible?
I think first we have to ask what friendship means to us.
