Me and my ex-girlfriend broke up 5 weeks ago. She had started acting weird and when I confronted her, she said things felt different, things had changed. I said, "Maybe we should take a break." She agreed. We didn’t talk much and then I left.
One week after the breakup, I texted her and said we should meet and catch up. She made up some excuses for why she couldn’t, so I left it at that.
4 weeks after the breakup – on the advice of the book the Ex2 System – I ended up texting her this casual message.
"Hey I worked in Parliament today for CBC, reminded me of you and when we went on that tour haha. How's your summer going?"
She responded within an hour with this: "No way! That's so cool, what were you doing there? My summer has been great. Reid moved out the other day, so that really sucks. How's your summer?"
As we texted a bit back and forth casually, I followed the Ex2 System and created a fake girl's Facebook profile and getting her to post on my wall. I found a legitimate-looking picture of a girl that is a big hotter than my ex. I posted on my wall as her, saying "You're too funny. Let's hang out again this Sunday."
I then took a picture of myself – which my ex-girlfriend had taken of me and posted on her FB profile – and made it my display pic. She'd receive a FB notification of this, and come to my profile. She would definitely look at my profile since I had deactivated my FB page for most of our relationship and after we broke up. She'd want to check my page out and see what I was up to.
Then, I texted her and asked if she wanted to meet for a drink. She wasn’t responding for a while, so I sent another text saying, "I realize us breaking up was for the best but I feel like we didn't have an open discussion about it. I want a better understanding of where things went wrong. I'm starting to see someone new so I want to learn and not make the same mistakes. So let's talk in person or on the phone at the very least. We said we'd talk about it at some point but haven't."
I thought she'd say let's talk on the phone but she responded with "I know, and I'm sorry. I have terrible communication skills. That's fine though, let's meet up this week."
So my question is: how do I approach meeting up with her? Do I meet up with her, play hard to get, pretend like I’m completely over it and talk about what went wrong? Or do I show up, be friendly, hit on her slightly, avoid talking about the relationship, and then possibly make a move? Let me know what you think.
