I broke up with my ex boyfriend (3 years, LDR) a month ago. The break-up was mutual, we still loved each other but had disagreements about the relationship so we thought it was better to cut it off before we ended up hating each other. Even though we ended it well, it's been hard and painful for me. A week later, he asked me to remain friends and he's been texting me every single day, even after I already asked him to stop doing it 'cause it's still painful. He believes it wouldn't help us any better if we had cero-contact and that we should learn how to be friends.
