The night she dumped me, I asked my ex if she wanted her belongings back, she said "yes, definitely", I asked when she would be coming to get them, she first said "when the dust settles" whatever that meant. We spoke in person about a month after our break up. I again asked her if she wanted her stuff, and when she would be coming, this time she said "soon" that at she would call me in a week or 2 to set up a time. The call never came. Finally, the other day I reached out to give her a final opportunity to retrive her stuff, she didn't respond to my text, a day later I said she had 1 week to pick up her stuff, after that, I would be throwing it away, that I was trying to be kind and offer, and the decent thing would be for her to respond with a decision. She finally texted me back and said she would be coming to get everything the following week. She claimed she wasn't ignoring me and that I should know better. She also claimed she hasn't contacted me because she was giving me time and space to heal, but later claimed she forgot I had her stuff (these are contradicting statements, so it seems like she is lying to me).
if she dumped me, and has likely moved on, why would she keep delaying, and avoid picking up her stuff? She wanted to break up, she shouldn't care if it's awkward, it's a way to finally end everything.
Was she avoiding it to keep the door open in case she wanted to reconcile with me?
I admit, I do miss her a lot. I have been dating other people, however, I don't feel a strong connection with anyone like I did with my ex.
i am interested in hearing girls' thoughts on why you think my ex acted this way, what she is trying to do.
