My ex boyfriend and I broke up early last month. He said he was more than willing to go back to being friends like we were before we dated, and that I could text him anytime and he'd respond whenever he could. So for a couple of weeks after the breakup, I gave him some space (no begging and pleading at all), and then I decided to try a simple text asking him how he was doing. No reply. Oh, well.
I then waited another three weeks or so, and I actually saw him on campus earlier this week. I smiled and waved at him, and he waved back. So yesterday evening, I was talking with my best guy friend, and he said I should try to reach out to him again. So I sent my ex another simple text last night telling him what I was up to and asking how his summer was going. Still no reply. I don't get it. Why did he say we could be friends if he won't even respond to my texts? Keep in mind I haven't spammed him at all. I've only tried texting him twice with 2-3 week intervals in between. Before he and I dated, he still casually talked to/was friends with his last girlfriend, so he should have no problem talking to me as well, right? On the other hand, he did say that I was a way better girlfriend than she was, but I don't know. It's been a little over a month since we broke up. Shouldn't that be more than enough time?

From what I learned, it will take time before exes can truly become friends. As messed up as this sounds, there is a possibility that he is ignoring you because he still needs to recover from the break-up and he might need more space before he can start a friendship. Sometimes it takes longer than a month if his feelings were strong for you.0
