The ex husband died unexpected, he drove her nuts and than some. They have two children and I understand there worlds have been turned upside down. I was out of the country when it happened. When I got back I gave her, her space with an occasional text & an email which she responded too. On Friday, left a short message & sent her a text / picture that I know she laughed at. I also sent an email, mainly so it would be a little more personable in which I informed her that one of my best friends had passed away on Wednesday. She also posted a former family picture on Facebook ... I am male therefore I am stupid... Do I give her more space & time or just cut her loose, we where an item. There is just a huge part of me that wants to comfort her, I just don't know what to do. Flowers, a card, day @ the spa ... Something to show I care ... A response of some sort would be nice ... She has not told me to get lost, that might actually be nice
Dealing with the death of an ex?

Sounds like she is overwhelmed emotionally, and just doesn't want to deal with anything. I would continue to let her know you're there, and you do want to comfort her, but also let her know if she needs space, just to let you know. It's not fair to be left hanging..but that if she needs time, you are acceptant of that.0
