I miss him - May 5th 2011, 03:27 AM

I felt that this belonged here rather than in the Relationships and Dating forum, but correct me if I'm wrong

So my ex broke up with me back in August, so around 8 months ago now. I'm pretty much over it, but today my friend Shannon posted some pics of us, him, and our friend Gabe a year ago when we used to hang out all the time on double dates. That made me think and I really miss my ex. He was really mean to me after the break up and we stopped talking a few months after we broke up. Now we rarely ever talk and we try to avoid each other.

Well I miss the friendship and I'd like to get it back but the problem is we didn't start out as friends, we just jumped into the relationship. It managed to last almost a year.
I guess my question is, how do I talk to him? I want to tell him that I miss him but I just don't know how without it sounding bad. Help?


And here you are living, despite it all.

Nicole,

I totally get where you are coming from. I was the same way with an ex boyfriend of mine. Maybe you can strike up a conversation with Gabe that is low key. Like, "Hey what's up", and then gradually start talking about the good things in the past. Bring up things that were good for the both of you. You can then say "I miss those times" or "Those times were fun!". I would keep it casual, and just glide into it. Saying you miss him is going to be hard, but you'll be glad you did it.

:]

thanks Lynds, however Tyler is my ex not Gabe. Close enough though
I did try that a few months ago and it didn't go over well with him though. But who knows, things could have changed. I'll try again sometime soon
