Just because two people Break up doesn't mean they can't and don't Make up and that it's Goodbye forever, my love. And with an "EX" who still Marks an X in your own heart and soul, there is usually motive in mind when it comes the time that the Other half may Want------Friends again.
In your sticky situation, which I see mostly This with guys not girls so much, your Ex wants you in her life and is probably Missing the Kissing and the history you both shared. She feels comfy with you and although she is this free bird right now, it seems she wants her cake and it Two.
Friends with benefits may only complicate things on your own end here, dear. If you still have these feelings, then I can guarantee they will grow and the whole sticky situation will probably end up to be a big sour ball in your mouth and hers and go down a beaten path of... War of there Roses.
It's best to decide if this is best for you. Maybe no contact, knowing she wants what she wants, will enable you to move on better, faster and begin your own beguine. If she is happy in her own nest right now with no strings attached, then she may not want to be these birds of a feather again, just stay friends till the end, and this will leave you and your poor heart to... lose out.
Think it over carefully. Life is a gamble as we all know but something like this may just be this full circle pattern where you both have problems with wanting something different and in the end, nothing has changed.
Good luck. xx

It is so hard to be in the friendzone if you have one sided feelings in the friendship.
