We were friends for a year, best friends for 5 months before we started dating. We're deskmates and spend every school day with eachother. However, things changed during break last month. We weren't seeing eachother as much and we drifted apart, fought over little things which led to the breakup. It was horrible and we both cried a lot. He still loves me but is confused right now. Though he said he doesn't see us getting back together and doesn't want to hold me back from moving on, he also said if we could work things out he would but he's not ready right now. I don't think I'm ready to get back together yet because I want to fix myself too so I understand.
We had a talk today and we agreed to hang out in hopes of becoming close again. We're still desk mates and he's my Best Friend. I really love him and want him back. I'm willing to wait for him. Will we become closer if we continue hanging out as we did before? If possible, what other ways are there? Thanks so much!

You had a big fight about small stuff and broke up. That scenario is fairly common and it usually suggests that there is some underlying conflict or problem which is not being discussed and resolved and your anger is coming out "sideways." If you get back together, you are likely to come to the same end, unless you determine the real source of conflict and address it head-on.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder. I would take some time apart and get to know yourself better... eventually, I would meet up with the ex and talk. Try and determine why you two got so angry with each other during your time off, but also, figure out interests that you have. Focus mainly on yourself during that time. If it's meant to be, it'll be.
