the fact that you do not know shows you should hold back on relationships for a while you may feel like you are wise but you really have a lot to learn, I am 44 and I am still learning.
I am sure it is. Be strong and wait until you see him.
Tell him to man up and say what he means instead of falling back on text abbreviations.
All he said was "ily"? I'm guessing he's illiterate or his finger slipped.
A "smart" phone wouldn't auto-correct the wrong words, lol. Nah, I think he likes you, but is too shy to come out and say that.
*And I do mean 'like'. People misuse the word love all the time, so don't take it too seriously when he says "ily"
ILY means I love you.
Well, if he's your ex, he should know better by now.
I mean that if he's your ex, it's quite possible that he does love you, but if he's your ex, presumably, you have moved on. And so has he. He can still love you, but the love is not the same.
