My boyfriend of 2 years broke up, but it was pretty mutual. We still like each other, but it was just hard for both of us to continue dating and we've both talked about staying as friends. I'm just not sure how long i'm supposed to "not see him" or give him space until we can hang out again and be okay.

I always say I want to be friends, but i never mean it. Seems friendship is just a way to hang on, and I see more people here wasting time obsessing over whether the person wants them back, the fact that the ex isn't very close to them, or trying to find hidden meanings behind everything the ex says or does. Staying "friends" is an anchor that keeps one or the other ex-partner from moving on.
I'd let it roll until (if) he initiates contact about the friendship.0
