OK so I told my ex I didn't want to be friends with him anymore because I knew I would gain feelings back again and I didn't want to get hurt. Then he said I really want us to be friends and I said why. and he said because I like u. OK does he mean like me more as a friend or just like me as a friend he didn't specify and I said the feeling is mutual so he know I like him but he just said he liked me but I don't know how to take it like as in more then friends or just like as a friend. What do you guys think?

I think it could go both ways that have mentioned. He may truly want to keep you around as a friend, but also might be doing it to string you along and keep you around.
A lot of people say that exes can't be friends, which is true a good portion of the time. But there are people who can manage it. I think you should tell him that you just need some time away to regroup, and then allow him back when you feel you've been able to get over the entire thing. When you don't get away from that person, sometimes those lingering feelings stick. But it depends on you and how you work. I know if I had feelings for someone and have been given time to get away from them for awhile, when they come back into my life, those feelings have become non existent. Not sure if it'd work for you, but you could give it a shot.0
