Friends with your ex?

I am still in love with him and I want to be with him. We had a falling out due to my anxiety and mental health. I have a rocky past and it followed me.

We ended up breaking up because we had a huge argument because my anxiety. I didn't want to break up and I made the mistake of immediately trying to fix things.

After some time apart I started working in myself. But I still want him.

He has said he will be there for me as a friend and I need to understand that he doesn't want to date anyone.

I told him I am happy being friends as I have some work to do on myself.

Is being friends a good way to potentially lead to being together again?

Has anyone else ever done this?
