So my ex boyfriend and I dated for about a year and eight months. We broke up about two months ago and haven't talked since the day of our break up. Today I got up the nerve to send a simple text of "hi". He answered me back, and we have been talking for most of the night. I do still have very strong feelings for him as in I want to be with him. Even though our relationship was messy for the most part I still loved him dearly and still do to this day. I am not sure how to go about this. I did mention in the beginning texts that I still cared and loved him very much, but he gave me no response back of I still love you to or I still care. I didn't take it to heart because I mean this was our first conversation since the break up. He asked me why I decided to text him and I said I just am in a new place in my life, happy, content and just have been thinking about him a lot, more than just what is he doing, or is he okay. I told him that if he wanted to be left alone I would respect his wishes and not contact him, but he said he well he cant do that now since he text me back, and that he really didn't want to answer my text but I haven't received a reason why, but that is not a big deal. I am just happy we are talking again. So he sent me a text after he got to work saying: "Just don't expect me to jump at it because you want to try. If you intent is to get back together then leave me alone, if not then keep talking." I replied with: "No, not at all. I mean if it happens it does. I don't expect it or even push for it. I mean shit, we just started talking again." His reply: "Yeah" I replied: "So I am just taking my own advice and its just go with the flow. Let it just happen if it does and expect nothing." Sorry if this is all hard to understand but I would like your opinions. Honesty please...no b.s or sugar coating. Thanks.
