The heart wants what the heart wants. Your ex is your ex for a reason and if the feelings are mutual with this friend of hers there is a potential for a great relationship, I wouldn't pass that up.

You're my best friend's ex and I don't think it would be a good idea if we start texting. I don't think she would like that." Totally understanding and making it clear that I had no attraction to her but mearly wanting to be friends, we keep it casual and just messaged each other on Facebook. Then one day out of the blue she gives me her number telling me she would rather text and not message each other on Facebook. Is this a lead on and should I just stop talking to her? Or do you think there is an attraction there?
Ultimately if your ex and this girl's friendship is strong enough they will be able to work things out between them. If not there is a risk there friendship will end over this and that's the risk she'll have to take if she see's the potential in a possibly great relationship. Personally I like the straight forward approach, tell her how you feel but I know it's not always the easiest thing. Perhaps in this case the best thing to do is start texting her if that's what she wants and see where it goes. Overtime hopefully you will be able to figure out if the feelings are mutual. If things don't work out hopefully you can continue to be friends. At least you will know you tried and will never wonder what if? Walking away and never finding out what could be is worse if you ask me.
