Long story short, my ex broke up with me 4 months ago and we've been together for 3 years. HE broke up with me. From then up until now, we've been talking pretty much everyday with him always initiating contact. Sometimes i feel like he would be dropping hints and he would get jealous of some things. A 2 weeks ago I hungout with a mutual friend, lets call him fred. The 3 of us are really close friends, so i just hungout with fred and was just catching up with him. Today, apparently my ex was hanging out with fred and i guess fred told him we hungout recently and my ex texted me saying " Hey, im hanging out with fred and im glad that you're going out and hanging out and everything, i just want to let you know that you're beautiful and i felt like we always got along really good and i hope you dont hate me." I dont understand why he sent this to me... what does he want? there's so much mixed signals. Help!
