Khloe Kardashian doesn't cut ties.

The 31-year-old Kocktails With Khloe host penned a post on her blog on Monday, where she talked about "being cordial" with the men who have come and gone in her life, and her desire to always "feel like I can say hi to anyone I've had a relationship with if I saw them in public."

"I want to feel like I can text a guy I've dated in the past to see how he's doing without it being weird," Khloe wrote.

Although she admitted that people "definitely shouldn't force" a friendship with a person they've separated from.

"You need a break, so you can process everything, and you need to respect yourself and your own emotions. If it's toxic to remain friends, you shouldn't, and if you haven't had closure, you can't be friends yet. But it doesn't have to be that way forever," she wrote, citing the post-divorce friendship that eventually developed between her mother, Kris Jenner, and father, Robert Kardashian.

Khloe said that she doesn't think it's important to stay friends with everyone, explaining, "If my relationship with someone didn't have substance anyway, we don't need to keep in touch. I don't need to stay friends with a guy I f**ked for two weeks."

But in the case of her ex, Lamar Odom, she feels it's important to maintain open lines of communication and friendship.

"If it's a relationship that served a purpose in my life, like Lamar, why wouldn't I want them in my life afterwards?" she wrote. "Just because you break up with someone doesn't mean you lose that connection."

She says the same goes for Scott Disick, who split from Khloe's sister, Kourtney Kardashian, in July.

"He was a huge part of our family and always will be," said Khloe. The sentiment is especially true considering Scott and Kourtney share three children -- son Mason, 6, daughter Penelope, 3, and 14-month-old son Reign.
