If you have mutual friends, another way to test the waters is to get the wing man or woman to ask you if you might still be interested. Don’t kill the messenger applies in this case because some ex’s send a scout to do their clean up. The friend may even put in a good word or two for the ex, just to test the water. Careful what you say because this friend will report back.
