My Ex Got a Makeover
The entire course of the relationship, you used to beg her to look after herself a bit more than she usually did. Dress up, do her hair and stay beautiful but she wouldn't give two hoots.

We should be Friends
Friendship is an over abused term by all those who nurse feelings for people they can never get. After the end of a relationship or even in situations where there is no relationship, the friendship card will be played. She might beg you to be friends for old times sake. In your innocence and guilt you might agree and give her a free card to mess with your brain under a new title of 'Friendship'
Pass the offer of friendship with a polite no and move on. It is almost impossible for people to turn into your friend after nurturing romantic feelings for you.
