I responded with "I don't know either. And believe me, I still want you in my life, but I just need to think things over."
Then she said "Ok, that's fine. Do what you need to."
It's been 8 days, and I still haven't responded to that last text from her. I'm still thinking things over, and I'm leaning towards keeping her in my life as just a friend (because I like having someone to talk to). This is the longest we've ever gone without talking, and it feels like the longer I wait the more awkward it'll be, so I have no clue how I would text her back now.
Would I say something like, "Hey, I got over you and I want to be just friends too" or would I start up a conversation and pretend nothing happened?
Any advice is appreciated
