We started speaking on more friendly terms last week. Instead of cold, messages he was sending smiley faces and asking me questions. This week, I also sensed he was being a little flirty with me, and he implied he enjoyed running into me randomly.
Last night we had another conversation through text. This may have been the best one yet. Even when we were together we didn't have this kind of chemistry through text message. He was telling me how glad he is that I'm achieving my goals and such, it made me happy, talking to him like that and I feel closer to him. I feel detached because I don't over analyze or get upset if he doesn't text back right away. I just go about my day smiling. I trust that everything happens for a reason.
I told him I found a CD of his and he said he wanted to meet up soon. Which makes me happy because we have only seen each other in passing since we broke up 5 months ago.
I would love for us to reach the point where we are best friends and moving into a more romantic relationship. I also, want to get to the point where he is comfortable initiating the messaging. My intention is to hear from him before Valentine's Day, where he initiates contact. Thank you everyone for your help and support.
