After a heartbreak it's always painful and trying when the decision is made to remain friends. Conversations are hesitant and lacking any real depth, or they are dramatic and emotional. And they often end up with the heartbreakee close to tears and wishing she hadn't participated.
Then there's that moment when she can actually smile after a conversation with the heartbreaker, happy to know him and content that she has moved on with her life.
That moment is awfully nice, don't ya think?
