One of my best friends is a guy I dated for 7 years, it took us time and it was a long road and we've gotten to a point of pure friendship with no romantic feelings on either side. So being friends with an ex does work out.
However, that story has a happy ending but my other one doesn't. My most recent ex and are trying to be friends because we have to due to our current situation and it is hell. If it were up to me I would have no contact with him altogether. I still have deep love for him and somedays breaks my heart to even hear his voice.
You two will always have a special bond, trust in that bond and realize that it might just take time. Be careful with what ever you chose to do but just make sure that you are strong enough for the outcome of your decision.

A clean break is the best break. Let me tell you, it isn't worth going back and trying to be friends unless you can somehow kill your feelings for him. Otherwise, you'll end up really heartbroken and disappointed if he starts dating someone else or turns you down.

Do yourself a big favor and make it a clean break. No communication. If you still have feelings for him, it will just keep you grasping to a hope that he will wake up and want to get back together with you. If you want to be friends with him after a suitable time has passed then that is up to you, but because you were together for so long and he broke it off, I think you should give yourself a lot of space from him. Like, space until you realize you don't care about him. Personally, I'd just stay away and move on.
