Okay so it has been over a year since my ex gf broke it off between us. I have done a lot of healing and underwent a lot of changes since then by improving my poor qualities and maturing greatly. I am 21 and she is 18 but ever since she broke up she would contact me at least once a month. A few months ago she broke it off with her rebound and recently she has been really flirtatious with me and wanting to hang out with me. She will contact me at least once a week and last week the whole thing kind of hit the fan because she started telling me how she hates being single and all this <removed> about guys. Then she tells me how she will always have some feelings for me and that she still feels close to me even though we havent seen each other in close to a year. She also is planning on hanging out with me a lot this summer as she says and she flirts with me whenever we talk. The other day she videochatted me and we ended up talking and flirting for about 3 hours.
My question is i dont know what to do going forward because i clearly still have feelings for her but im reserved that she will <removed> me over again and hurt me. I dont know if shes just using me, wanting to be friends or legit trying to set the stage for us getting back together? We also discussed how much she hurt me in our recent conversation and she was apologizing and saying how it was just best for her at the time..what does that even mean? she also admitted that her rebound was just a booty call to try and get over me and in her words she said it didnt work at first but then left it at that. The whole point behind me writing this is because I do want her back but i dont know if its a good idea or if thats what she is intending because i cant ever just be friends with her. Just from this recent conversation i am missing her more and getting upset when i try not to talk to her a lot and she will only initiate contact with me randomly. Please offer any advice for me, it is much appreciated!!
