As I have said to my ex each and every time she says she wants to be friends now, post-divorce: "People don't treat friends the way you treat me. So although I like having friends, I expect my friends to treat me the way I treat my friends. Since you do not, I need you as a friend like I need a dog who bites. No, thank you."
Sure, you can be friends with an ex.
But not unless they are able to treat you the way you deserve to be treated by a friend, which rules out such negative attributes on their part as control, narcissism, manipulation, passive-aggression, selfishness, pettiness, and so on and so on.
