Not sure if this goes here, but it seemed like things of this nature could, hypothetically, be put in this kind of place, and besides, this isn't anything big anyways. Just a question.
So I was in a relationship with this girl not too long ago (it was both of our first attempts at having a serious relationship, so it consisted of quite a bit of awkward flailing around). It sputtered on for a few months, then, one night, we talked it over and decided that it would not work. In my opinion, I brought the topic up, but she was the one who uttered the final cut. Again, in my opinion, I feel like it was relatively clean, and that we were both okay with remaining friends and continuing contact after it.
However, after the break, she seems to be avoiding me and generally giving me the cold shoulder. This could just be my imagination, of course, but in case it isn't, how would I go about trying to get her to treat me as a friend rather than...well, as GOTYE put it, "cut[ing] me off"? We were pretty good friends before the relationship, and I regret asking her out; she did warn me that she was afraid it might not work out, but I pushed too hard at the beginning, I suppose.
Anyways, I might not have given enough details, but can anyone help me learn how to become more socially adept on the relationship front? I just want to be friends again; that's all.
