My ex and I broke up a little over a month ago. We dated for 10 months and basically lived together for a good chunk of that time. We broke up because I could sense something was wrong so I brought it up and he said he loved me but wasn't in love with me anymore. We didn't have a bad break up and went through the normal "lets be friends" talk. My birthday was a little while ago and I never got a text or anything from him. It hurt. Today, I looked at my instagram and he stopped following me (I know it seems trivial but for some reason it really bothered me). I did the whole no contact thing for the last month and tonight I texted him just a little "hey, saw (omit team name) has a game this weekend. I know you were really looking to the season finally starting. Hope you're doing well". He hasn't responded. I want to win him back because I really do love him and he was my best friend.
What do I do next? Do I wait a few days then text again? What do I text him next time? Please someone help me. I'm at a loss on how to get my best friend and love back.

You have to move on. The more you dwell on this, the worse you will feel. It will start impacting your ability to meet someone else. A perfect partner may wander by and you will let them pass because you are fixated on a relationship that will not ever happen. He didn't wish you happy birthday. He hasn't responded to your text. He is done. The more you try, the more pathetic it will look to him, and he won't even want to consider you for a friend in the future.
It will hurt, but the more you try, the worse it will get, and the worse it will hurt.2
