Most Helpful Girl
Just because two people Break up doesn't mean they can't and don't Make up and that it's Good-bye, my love forever. And with an EX who still Marks his own X in your softie spot, there is usually motive in mind when the time comes when He-----Invited me to go out we have dinner and he gave me some chocolates...
With him telling you what you most likely didn't want o hear, Nor expect in return, he most likely wanted to have you back in his life, try again slowly with no strife to slowly nurse and nurture, a possible Friendship First this time, and see where it might lead to.
Contact him and tell him you would like to talk to him, face to face. Tell him you would like him as well back in your life and yes, going slow with the flow would be best right now to see where it may go.
It's your choice, your call, but if you have this One time opportunity to make it better this time, friends is always a good way to begin your beguine.
However, a last minute word of advice. Buyer beware if it is Friends with Benefits he is really after... then the ball is definitely in your court as how you want to play now with him.
Good luck. xx
