Me and my ex broke up a little over a year ago and I honestly made a lot of mistakes trying to her her back like begging crying gifting etc. I went in and out of no contact making the same mistakes but this time around when I contacted I did all that I could do to not bring up the past and I did great I talked to her for the past 2 weeks just as friend and we both flirted and she even would text me “good morning have a great day :)” so I felt like I was getting some where this time finally we’ll we had a date set up
For yesterday after I got off work and she went all day without texting me and an hour after the scheduled date she canceled and said her aunt have her a surprise visit ( they live 6 hours part) I asked her how long she was visiting for and she said idk so I’m assuming it’s a bs excuse but I played it cool and say well hey maybe next time we can get together and have some
Fun. Any way today rolls by and I started feeling a little needy and I sent her the can I ask
You something text she said yea of
Course I basically said hey I love you and I have made a lot of great Changes in my life and talking to you lately has been great we finally
Get along its bringing back the good memories but I see myself getting needy with you again which got me here in the first place I guess I’m just trying to see where do we stand. She replied you’re a real special person in my life but at this point, i’m not ready to pursue anything else other than friendship right now. I replied I understand and I would love to be friend but I just don’t think I can because I truly love you and being your friend and not your lover will just be hard and hurt I appreciate you telling me that and hey I’d love to be your boyfriend again and just let me know if you change your mind. Did I handle this right? Should I have done something different how can I make myself to be congruent with that I said?
