i usually talk to my ex about once a year when i go home to jersey... we usually just try to pretend like nothing happened and act normal. even though i know he'd be all over this if i went for it haha... you just have to play it cool. dont try to impress him, itll make you look desperate. just be like hey, you wanna chill? if not thats cool. and dont analyze everything he/she says... thats the worst thing you can do. whatever crazy meaning you think is behind every sentence is usually just that... crazy.

I have experienced this more then once. Recently! It's seems to me that in some situations it's just a friend thing. One of my ex's we have a good friendship now after not talking for a few years. Another asked me to marry him after not talking for over 2 years. I laughed in his face. It really all depends on what both of you want out of the friendship. Good luck

After two years of not seeing eachother you will have to be open to any changes this person may have done. Like wise with you, realize that they are an ex for a reason and that just because you'd start seeing them as a friend doesn't mean you need to be in a relationship with them. Always remind yourself that this is an ex and the reason why you guys broke up. However at the same time be open to the situation and take it slow. Are your intentions to get back with them or to be friends? That's something you need to ask yourself.

I would take it slowly. Remember that you are now friends so don't invite him/her to a private place (i.e. home). Meet in a public domain and try to talk about everyday activities. Do come across as someone who is seeking to renew your relationship. This will come across as being negative. Welcome to MYLOT and I hope you will enjoy this community.
