I've currently been having a lot of time alone to just think and it's making me feel like I want to fall apart. my most recent ex boyfriend and I are trying to be friends again after not talking for over a year after the break up. I think I still have feelings for him. we have such a strong connection with each other, but i don't know if it should be friends or something more. ex boyfriend and I still say I love you, but sometimes its hard to tell which way he means it. we've been through a lot together and its hard to imagine life without him. the other day a friend of mine came out and said that he had always liked me. wants to take care of me. I love everything about this friend but I have no physical attraction to him. I just don't know what to do. I still feel like I need time to heal yet I've been stuck in a depression. I don't even have friends right now 😢

      You have a right to feel the way that you do. I personally do not believe in being friends with "ex's" because of the emotional feelings that may resurface. You should tell your good friend that you don't feel the same way, but would like a friendship with him. I'm here to talk if you need as well.

      Your emotions are valid. If you think you need time to heal, then you need time to heal. You shouldn't think about what you should do, but rather what you want to do. I think vocalizing your concerns with both your ex and your friend would also be beneficial in regards to closure. It seems that they are both unintentionally crossing some boundaries or maybe you are crossing boundaries, which you have to acknowledge. I wish the best of luck to you and I'm open to talk if you need someone
