In a long relationship (two years) where nothing went wrong that was unforgivable, why would a girl stay in touch? She became very, and may I add rightly so, very jealous. I became very close to another girl at the end when we were not dating anymore but still seeing one another and becoming more distant. Now she has had a new boyfriend for a few months. She still texts me with a joke or comment every few days or so. She had made it VERY CLEAR she only wants to be friends, and I have made it very clear I want more.
I can't fathom why someone would just want to be friends like that. She isn't the type to intentionally hurt me either. That I'm sure of.
So... The question: Does a girl still have feelings for her past boyfriend at some level if she stays in contact while in another relationship?
- Absolutely: No girl would risk staying in touch with a serious ex if it could potentially hurt their current relationship.
- Yes on some level she still has feelings if taking that risk.
- No: She might really just want to be friends, despite her current relationship.
- I don't know. Too difficult to say.

Of course. Damn people that says ex is an ex for a reason. I hate it. Each girl is diff. But in my opinion I think girls will still have feelings for past boyfriends. Maybe not to the point she would date you again but just care about you and your being. It's hard to say. Just depends on the circumstances. Maybe she's over you and there's no click but doesn't want to remove you out of her life. I would want to stay friends with an ex but guys don't like that or think they can be friends. Girls just like have someone close. Also you guys did date for two years. You have gotten to know each other. Both of you knows each other's weakness and strength. She's not going to just get rid of your connection (which she views as friendship). Seems like she's over you. Sorry.

Regardless of anything you wrote, it isn't a good idea to stay friends with an Ex... They're an Ex for a reason and looking backwards will prevent you from looking ahead to better thing.
