Do I stay in touch with my Ex if I care about him?

Dear Panel,

...he wrote me a "Dear Jane" letter and stopped calling me and so did I. I feel like I want to talk with him and make sure he knows that I care about him more than ever...

Dear Panel,

Hi my name is Elise and I'm a very confuzzled young female.

My ex, Kevin, was and is a very caring, loving, and not to mention, a very attentive boyfriend/person. He was crazy about me.

I Met My Future Husband Too Soon

Kevin couldn't wait to go out with me and when he finally did, he was so loving and sweet and caring and attentive too. The relationship was the best anyone could ever get; in fact I thought I had met my future husband too soon! Everybody said we made such a cute couple.

I Told Him I Needed a Break

Anyway though, I called him on the phone about seven months into the relationship and told him I needed a break and have some "friend time." Of course I didn't know what I was doing because he is my second boyfriend here, and I took him back the day after because he was so heartbroken.

He Wrote Me a "Dear Jane" Letter

About three months later, he wrote me a "Dear Jane" letter and stopped calling me and so did I. I feel like I want to talk with him and make sure he knows that I care about him more than ever.

Should I talk and keep in touch with my ex who I care about more than ever?
