Long story short me an my ex were together almost a year. He broke up with me a month ago. He said we could be friends and still talk and stuff if I wanted but our relationship was over. In the first month I contacted him via texting a few times regarding things about our relationship/break up. He answered me every time but was distant and said he did not want to talk about things. I missed him so much and just wanted to fix thing between us. However, the last time was talked things went down hill and he told me I needed to put this all behind me because it's"irritating" him. I told him I was sorry and I just missed him but would leave him alone. I have not contacted him since then (even thought I have wanted to) and am determined not to have any interaction with him for at least 5-6 week but I feel like I won't make it any longer than that before I break down. Would it be okay to send him a brief message in a month or so asking if we could try to be friends/just get back on good terms? Will the month or more of space help with his reaction?
