An article in the generally ridiculous British tabloid The Sun gives ladies advice on how to have "good ex-iquette" — i.e., how to handle an old flame with grace. Sex scribe Emily Dubberley insists that being friends with an ex is possible if you do things like avoid drunk dialing, "have self-respect", "be nice to his new girlfriend", and don't "be a bunny boiler" which apparently is some random UK slang for total psycho. Her last bit of advice may be the only part that makes sense: "It can be easy to fall into the trap of trying anything to stay close to your ex, but this isn't generally healthy. If staying in contact is messing up his life, or yours, don't be afraid to walk away." Because isn't staying friends with an ex is a near-impossible task if you ever really loved them?
