When breaking up, if you’re hoping to get back together, is it better to stay in contact and be friends? Or have no contact and give them space?

I want my ex to come back. We kind of talked about seeing how each of us grows while apart and maybe come back together in a year and re-assess.

I don’t know if I made the mistake, though, of saying maybe while we’re doing that, to have little to no contact and not be friends. I was scared of being put in the friend zone and also not giving him enough breathing room and coming off as desperate.

Which is usually the better way?
