Can you really just be friends with an ex??
Michael Sam seems to be trying with his former fiance Vito Cammisano -- 'cause they just reunited for the first time since they broke things off back in June.
Sam and Vito hooked up to make a video for Vito's YouTube channel promoting Spirit Day -- where people are supposed to wear purple to take a stand against the bullying of LGBT youth.
First off, props to the guys for putting their issues aside for a good cause -- but check out the clip, you can tell things are still a little weird between the two ... as it would be with most exes after a breakup.
Question is ... could this be the first step in a reconciliation? Or will they really stay "just friends."
