So the unthinkable happened to me about a week ago. As the title says it all my ex best friend and the girl who I loved more than anything broke NC with me after 5 months. She said and I quote "Can we please be on speaking terms again? It doesn't even have to be everyday or even every week if you want the space, thats fine. Can you please just stop ignoring me?".
Now I have responded, but I waited a bit before I did, mainly because I didn't want to jump right at her message and also because I was shocked that she would even message me. I told her that I never wanted to ignore her, but I had to leave to get over my feelings for her, which in the 5 months I have done so. We mutually agreed that we wanted to re-establish our friendship, but at a very slow pace. I'm willing to put everything that she put me through in the past and keep it behind me. I'm keeping it to limited contact, as my guard is up very high in case some feelings come floating back.
I would like to know if anybody else has had something similar happen? If not with an unrequited love then with an ex? I'll admit I've never been in this situation before so I'm not 100% sure if I'm handling it correctly. Any stories and advice would be appreciated!
