    Should I hang out with her as a friend to get her back?

    She really wants to be friends. I went overboard though and asked her to go out on what seemed like a romantic date. Flower emojis and all. She then had to call me and tell me that it felt very much like a date request and that she didn’t want a date. She said that she just didn’t want me to get the wrong idea. I got offended and cancelled the meet up all together telling her that its too soon for me to hangout just as friends. Now I wish I would have just asked to grab a coffee and took it slow. Maybe she wants to be friends first and test the waters again by taking it slow. I ended up blocking her on insta a few days later. I had already stopped following her on insta to try to get over her but she continued following me and liking all my posts and viewing my stories. A week later she called me to see how I was doing and it felt really good talking to her but I think she just called to see why I blocked her. …continued below…

    The next day I had to call her and tell her not to call me until I call her because I m still healing and I m not ready for friendship yet. I also told her to call me if she wanted to talk about getting back together. We hadn t seen each other in person for about 2 months. Now I feel like I should have met with her as a friend a few times in person before I invited her out on these romantic date seeming meet ups. I was planning on going no-contact with her for as long as it takes to get over her but now I feel like re-opening our communication flow. She texted me Happy Birthday a week after I called her. Christmas and New Years were a few days after my b-day and I didn t send her Merry Christmas or happy new year though it was hard to do. Does it sound like I still have a chance with her? Should I wait until February and re-evaluate? Should I never contact her again? …Continued below…

    The reason we broke up was because I was on the fence for a while about the relationship and then she got too busy with work and school and then she told me that she didn’t want to have sex and that she didn t want to work on not wanting to have sex but she still wanted to be with me.
