I posted a little of my situation with my ex a while back. Anyways, we were together for 3 years, we broke up around 4th of July this past summer, 20 years old, we go to the same college, she has since gotten a new b/f. Now I tried to get back with her when we broke up and she said no, and has been seeing this guy basically since. After some weeks of emo ranting and fighting, and after realizing, YES she is going to date this guy even if she says she "isn't looking for anything serious..." So, I told her I would always care about her, but I couldn't talk to her again. It has been about a month or so since I have spoken a word to her. She called me once in this month and I ignored the phone call, I avoid mutual friends that are closer to her, cut her out of my life completely. Unfortunately, I really miss her, we were best friends and all that good stuff, so it sucks to not have her in my life at all. And on top of that, I feel like somehow I am being weak by not being able to talk to her. Am I doing the right thing by not talking to her? Or should I attempt to be her friend on the basis that life is too short... On top of that, can exes even have "real" friendships?? Like can exes even confide in each other like true friends without anything more?? Im confused. Help OT.
