Its been about 2 months since my ex girlfriend broke up with me. She wanted to meet up a bunch of times to be on good terms and becasue we were like best friends as well as in a relationship. She told me through multiple voicemails that she doesn't want to get back togther or lead me on to think that, but just to be good friends and doesn't want to loose me. So after two times she set up meeting times, both which I couldnt go to for valid reasons (helping a neighbour and being sick), she got frustrated and told me that I'm not putting any effort into meeting up, and she's doing all the work, which I dont understand because she broke up with me in the first place. Then she sent me a text saying she doesn't want to be friends with someone who makes her feel like shit and to have a nice life (she says a lot of mean stuff when she's heated in the moment). We haven't spoken for about a week, and I'm not going to lie she's on my mind a lot. One of my girl friends who I talk to about this told me to send her once last simple message saying "i still want to meet up if you want to, let me know?" nothing else, and see her responce. She told me she probably wanting to see me still because she is subtweeting so often. Which gets very annoying. Then my friend told me that maybe you guys could work on a good friendship that could lead to something further. In her situation they agreed not to be with anyone else and to work on their relationship. I feel like my ex wouldn't want that and may even take advantage of it, if she saw a guy she liked she would hook up with him and realize that her and I are only friends. I really dont know if working on a friendship is a good idea. This girl has said a lot of mean shit but is always on my mind. What should I do?

Becoming friends after a breakup is not as easy as she seems to think it is. Being on good terms with each other is a very good idea, I do agree with her on that. However, I don´t think a friendship is the best way to get there; especially so soon after the breakup.
Here is what I think. She broke up with you, but as she said herself, she doesn't want to lose you (as a friend). it is normal that she feels this, most people do after a breakup. The fact that she is so focused on meeting up with you tells me that she misses you, at least a little. This is why I think becoming friends with her now is a bad idea. It is a way for her to avoid the pain of missing you. It would mostly cause very complicated situations between you two. You can't just ignore the history you two share.
So, what should you do now? That is up to you. Do you want to meet up with her, even if it just one last time? What do you feel towards her now? Does meeting up seem like a good plan to you?
