Above is my original question. Today I had to meet my ex because I needed her to finish a web design project she is doing for me (it started when we were dating... I'm paying her to finish it). She has been very indifferent since we broke up... but when we met in person she was cold... ice cold. I have never ever seen her act this way when we were dating... even when she was angry at me.
So she's moved on. However at the end of the conversation I said "i do miss talking to you"... which is the truth. She smiled a little bit... but said "I've talked to exes in the past... its usually not a good idea".
So I'm guessing I just need to man up and move on?

Its rough, but I guess she's telling you what she expects - no more friendship.
If you try to force it, even with good intentions, if she's had bad experiences with exes in the past then mentally she will put you into the box of "yet another creep ex".
Try to finish up your business with her as quickly and professionally as possible, and don't worry about the friendship. There will be others :)
