She has a new boyfriend. It bothers me a lot (as obviously signals we are def over). She is being super nice to me as obviously she knows I may be upset. She really wants to be friends. Is it better to act (fake) happy for your ex and accept friendship or be cold and tell them you don't want to be friends. I know the score, that ultimately we probably won't be friends but I'm not really planning on ever contacting her (simply replying when she texts me). It's more the initial response of appearing like the bigger person and accepting friendship or declining and showing your dissatisfaction with her offer?

The solution is simple, NEVER talk to this girl again. Don't communicate with her, no texting, no eye contact, erase her facebook or MySpace or whatever. Don't tell her ANYTHING, she doesn't deserve your time. Any communication just boosts her ego because she KNOWS that you still care and have feelings. She has moved on and so should you. "Friendship" is not an option. It won't be a real friendship and guess what, you have friends already. All you will be is a filler of space, the emotional tampon, and a sucker when she cuts you out of her life completely without warning. She wants you to have a front row seat to her new relationship and wants to remind you of what you don't have with her anymore. She is your EX. Move on and start dating other girls. STOP trying to be civil because it doesn't work.1
