This might come as a shock to you, as you have been respected this fact for quite a long time. However, a new theory has come which indicates that people who are still friends with their ex, might be nothing but some psychopaths!
As an act of maturity, many intend to continue a friendship with their ex-partner, considering keeping a friendly relation is not a bad idea, because it shows that both can continue with their lives and do not need to completely stop communicating. So we thought; however, a new study indicates that people who are still friends with his ex-girlfriends / boyfriends could have psychopathic tendencies!
Are you a psychopath?
The research was done in University of Oakland and determined that if you feel the need to keep in your former life, you’re wrong. You actually have high tendencies to be psychopathic. Chilling, isn’t it?
The survey of 861 participants focused on what is called Post-Relationship-Friendships. Of course, the scholars involved in the study tried to find out whether keeping a friendship with the ex-partner is healthy or not. The biggest reason of this being unhealthy is that many considered the ex-partner as loyal and trustworthy.
So why they had terminated their relationships?
Another reason, mainly it involves men. They want to have a friend with benefits. In many cases these things occur with a person who knows you well, as the ex-partner.

Most alarming fact is that people who have higher levels (both men and women) of narcissistic and psychopathic personality are the ones who have more an attachment to their former partners.
There will be less emotional support; and since there is no commitment, they will be less reliable and could not care less about happiness of the other person.

Think about it. If the relationship with that person ended, it was because something was definitely wrong; possibly there was a flaw in trust. Now, a friendship with that person will have less support elements and less fidelity. That person is no longer with you. Why would he/she want to see you happy?
