This person isn’t your boyfriend or girlfriend, and this can have both its advantages as well as disadvantages depending upon your current wants and needs.
In this regard, it’s important to recognize that this person isn’t going to be able to provide you with the emotional support and care that are typically demonstrated by a significant other in a committed relationship, such as lending a shoulder to cry on, attending family events and/or spending a romantic evening out together. You and this person are on the same page about your FWB relationship.
To answer your question from the information you’ve given me… From what you told me, my read on what you’re trying to figure out is one of three scenarios: a) you want to know that he likes you because knowing someone likes you feels good, b) he is indifferent to you (in the romantic sense), but you and you’re seeing what you want to see, c) you don’t know whether or not he likes you, but you’d be open to starting something with him.
I’m going to go with the assumption that you like him, mainly because if you didn’t, you wouldn’t have asked.
Perhaps you’ve heard the term come up in movies and TV shows, have seen the acronym FWB or are simply trying to figure out if it’s the right kind of relationship for you.The reality is that playing emotional detective usually only succeeds at doing one thing: Making the girl go absolutely crazy.My suggestion is rather than trying to “solve the mystery”, assume that things are the way you want them to be. Worrying what the other person thinks usually just creeps them out…Now that you're broken up, each of you is entitled to do your own thing.But in keeping up the text-messages, your ex girlfriend is actually keeping up with your daily life and activities And why would she do this?
