I think it is possible to be friends with an ex, but it needs to be only a platonic friendship. I've done that before and it was fine. To have a continuing relationship with and ex that works though you either need to both be wanting a platonic friendship or both be wanting to resume the romance. That doesn't sound like your situation. It seems like you want to resume the romance and he just wants to tease you a bit but not get too involved. That sounds to me like a recipe for heartache. Unless he stops the flirting and you become comfortable with a platonic friendship, I think you're probably better off making a clean break.
