Just a thought
One would've had to been in a serious long term relationship before they can say what they will do while in and after the relationship is over. In 10 years with the same dude, there are many things I have done that I previously said I would not do.

I think I just grew up and became secure from my first relationship where being friends with exes was normalized. I don't miss this last dude for the relationship feelings and I'm not bitter lol. He's actually just a decent person in a world full of folks you can't trust.
I've moved on from the situation and have accepted it for what it is but that doesn't bar me from still having an opinion on the principle.
It’s not about pretending they don’t exist, its about placing the good and bad memories in a mental archive and moving on with your life.
I used to go to certain schools and jobs every day, yet I don’t keep texting my old bosses/teachers asking how they are doing and planning trips together... Even family/friends that I grew up with eventually fade to the background of my life, yet if we see each other we can be cordial.
Oorrr...I spent time building a relationship with that person, the least we could do is keep in touch and wish each other well moving forward....
To me, it's even more crazy that you used to plan every day with this person in mind and now you pretend like they don't exist...
