So about 6 weeks ago my ex broke up with me out of the blue telling me she needed space. We always had a great relationship and were friends as we'll as bf and gf. So after she cut off all contact with me and I didn't speak to her until 3 days ago when I saw her at school
The week before she broke up with me she was telling me how lucky she was to have me and said one day she could see herself marrying me. I don't know if she was blowing smoke out of her ass but it sounded genuine. That same day I also went as far as buying her our "2year gift" and giving her the purse. Our 2 year wasn't until September...
Now that were back at school I have been acting indifferent because I want her to chase me. My philosophy is everyone wants what they can't have. Now that I'm acting like this her behavior has been strange. For example in class the other day there were 5-6 open seats and she chose the one that was close to me and facing me. Then again I saw her that day at the gym and she was using the machines closer to me when the same ones were open farther away. Then the next day she's walking around with the purse that I got for her for our 2 year.
My guess is she's looking for a reaction and me not giving one to her is bothering her. My ultimate goal is to get her back but I want her to know in not a push over anymore and that she treated me wrong.
Am I handling this right? Any other suggestions?
Does indifference/ wanting what you can't have work?
For the poll
Do you think she will come around and want to get back from what I said?

Yes indifference helps as long as it really seems like she can't have you ( say hi/smile) and not like you are mad at her... it is easy for us girls to see the difference between an asshole ex that u can't get back and don't want back, an ex that's mad at us (we may use the machine close to you in purpuse to see your reaction, and if we think you're mad we like it. Because we can have you back) and the nice ex who we can't have back but we really want back.
