Group Therapy: Is It a Bad Idea to Hang Out With My Ex?

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I recently broke up with my boyfriend of three years. I still like him, but I really feel like I just need some alone time. This was my first real relationship, and I got a little scared thinking about "the future." After a month of calling it off, he contacted me and asked if I wanted to go to the movies. He also said he loved and missed me, and would be here if I'm ever ready to get back together.

I know that it's best if we do not get back together so soon. If we get back together with me being so unsure, it will most likely lead to me calling it off again. But, I kind of want to see him. Is it possible to just hang out for a few hours, or will this really hurt him? He says he understands and will let me have space, but he wants to see me so bad. And what if he kisses me? I know I'll kiss him back . . . it's just natural . . . but I really don't want to get back together.
