I wrote a lengthy first post. Gave a little background. Ex LTR now demoted still messages and calls. I've gone cold to her. Worked wonders for plating. I never acknowledge her texts anymore (I miss you, I feel sad, etc etc..). Leave them on read. Texting only for logistics.
Once or twice when she has called and I bothered to pick up (I usually ignore) she drops a "you're the best thing that happened in my life". I probably am. BUT
I could give a fck. My turns over. How do I respond to get her insides wet? As of yet, I don't acknowledge. If she says I miss/love you, "you should". I don't talk otherwise.
