Heartbreak Podcast - Why Can't We Be Friends?

I am back for another conversation with my bestie Jamie McKeown, an incredible health and wellness coach. She has previously been on the podcast before to talk about what to eat on a broken heart and to answer your listener questions. In this episode, we talk about cutting off contact with your exes, which I think it’s safe to say, Jamie and I don’t agree on. She shares why she holds onto friendships with people she has previously dated, and I point out why I coach my clients on ending those friendships and why they don’t serve you if your goal is to find your person. 

In our conversation, we also touched on some of the topics that I cover in my upcoming course,  How to Stop Wanting Him Back and Find Someone Better. As of recording this episode, I am in LA shooting over 50 videos teaching you how to stop wanting Mr. or Ms. Wrong back and how to fall the fuck in love with you, authentically, before you call in someone better. The course launches this November. To learn more and stay updated on the course, subscribe at https://clairetheheartbreakcoach.com/

Topics in this episode

  • The harm in being friends with your ex

  • You didn’t go on the dating apps to find a friend. You went looking for a partner.

  • There’s a difference between someone you went on a few dates with a few months ago, versus exes from years back where the relationship is now entirely platonic 

  • Ask yourself as the woman in her ideal relationship if you would continue these friendships when you are with your ideal partner. 

  • “I don’t have time to date” is just a thought

  • The lingering physical connection with exes 

  • Using your energy and time to invest in finding your ideal partner, instead of collecting friends



PLEASE NOTE: Claire refers to her exes and the listener’s ex as a “he,” based on her own personal experience as a heterosexual female, but this work can be applied to ANYONE going through heartbreak. ALL genders and sexual orientations are encouraged to listen and apply Claire’s tools into their own lives!
