We dated for 5 months and weren't friends before. At the BU she said "id like to be friends." I declined since she said she wanted space and had confused feelings towards me.
that happened back in October. Recently my dad passed away and she popped up again and showed up to the wake crying (she never met him). She said she wanted to catch up. I didn't take her seriously and brushed it off but a week later she texted me again about it.
I asked her intentions and she again said she would like to remain friends. I again politely declined since we weren't friends before dating and from past experience it hasn't worked for me.
My question is, she knew how I felt about the let's be friends thing, yet she has kept bringing it up (she has also sent a few texts and tried to extend and olive branch a few times). We work in the same office so I just politely say hi and keep walking.
why does she keep asking to be friends? She said she wanted space and I've given it to her.

Because people don't want to feel like the bad guy, they don't want to have the feeling of guilt on their shoulder over the break up so to be "friends" will let them sleep better at night.2

I was in the same boat, she made me feel like an asshole when everything was her fault and all her friends agreed too. Just stay away from her, she can't understand you guys will never be bff's. After her revolving door of boyfriends i met, she unintentionally met a girl I banged years ago and just about fainted. It all became clear to me, so don't fall for it. Get a new job if you have too, having her around will ruin you.
She will never want to see you with another woman, she won't want you happy. Just cut from your life
