Hi,
I think it is good that she is being honest with you. Unfortunately, at this point she may just need time to heal. She was in a long relationship and was hurt. Sometimes one may think they are ready to move on and then realize they are not. It is nothing personal towards you and doesn't even mean that she wants her ex back. It just means she needs to heal and find herself. Nothing can help more than time at this point and you being there for her. It really is up to you at this point if you want to wait for her or if you want to move on. Being friends is also an option.
I wish you the very best and please let me know if I can be of further help.
