The break up is still fresh a few months and the feelings are still there? Or that is just an excuse for them to keep them for now until they are over them? My ex dumped me but insists to be friends with me and keeps telling me he still has these feelings for me and flirts with me but hurts my feelings when I want more... I cannot do this anymore... :( I told him to stop contacting me that it's over. He got mad and told me I keep sh/tting on his feelings and asked if I wanted affection that is why I am bitching at him. We broke up in May. We stopped talking for 2 months... and then he came back to say Happy Birthday to me in September... what is he doing to me... We haven't seen each other since the breakup. he is not dating anyone right now. he said nobody replaced me...

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.1

Me and my ex managed to stay really good friends after we broke up!! It took some time for both of us, but we just saw that we didn't see ourselves together in the future. This is the first time happening for both of us that we manage to stay friends after being together. I also thing I wouldn't be able to do it with anybody else. Just while we were together we built a really strong friendship. We even talk about the new people in our lives and we care about each other a lot... still after the separation we never tried getting back together, not even kissed.1
