At least once a month, he confronts me to really try and work on a friendship. It frustrates me! I keep telling him that I can't be friends with an ex! He doesn't really accept that. He thinks just because he has no feelings left, that I should be over it too! every time he has these friendship "talks", it makes me sad for the rest of the day because I still love and miss him! He basically thinks that we got along so well in a relationship, and since he can't handle a relationship, might as well have a friendship (he doesn't want me out of his life!)
How do I stop him from thinking of me just as a platonic friend. I know in my heart that we got along amazingly well! I want us to keep things open for the future. Why is he doing this? What should I do?
