Hello and thanks for using!

I'd suggest you talk to her. Explain to her that her actions are confusing to you -- Does she want space or doesn't she? Is she sure she wants things to end? Are you?? If not, what could you do to repair the relationship?

She's likely texting for a few reasons. It's hard to let go of someone completely when they've become a familiar part of your daily life. She could also be confused about what she wants. Either way, you'll need to ask to know for sure. Successful relationships are based upon trust, honesty, mutual respect and open communication. The more open you are in your communication with one another, the better.

Don't have this conversation by text or e-mail -- so much of communication is non-verbal (tone, body language) and the last thing you want is to miss what she's trying to say or have what you're saying be mis-interpreted. Try to have this conversation in person. I wish you the best of luck!
