My ex girlfriend and I broke up two days ago and I saw her the other day. (Note: I haven't contacted her.) When I saw her, she initially tried to give me a little wave, but I waved her over because we agreed to be friends. In fact, she suggested it.. But when she came over, she seemed nervous. She repeated herself and seemed kind of flustered, which I found odd, since she decided to leave me AND wanted to remain friends. If anything, I figured she should be the calm one and me out of it.. But it's the opposite. Why is this?

I just noticed that you had another post related to this.
It's ABSOLUTELY normal for her to feel and react that way. Breaking up is not as easy as it seems for girls (especially girls tend to be more emotional). Imagine she was once emotionally attached to you and now having to get used to that. No matter how calm she is, it takes time to adjust. Different girls may react differently (e.g. some not wanting to talk to ex, some feeling very awkward to meet their ex, some feeling angry over their ex etc.), depending on how involved were they emotionally with their ex-es, how psychologically ready were they for the break-up, and how the break-up was done.
Do appreciate that she still wants to be friend you. Just give her time and space to get used to this. all the best x0
