You have really hit the nail on the head. I have no problem just being friends with her. All we can do is simply live this single life to the fullest. He left now me a little over 4 months ago, but we still spoke and hung out almost every day for a long time afterward. Doesn't mean though that I still don't know what I wanna be when I grow up, but hey, we can't have everything. I have known this girl for a very long time and she knows that i like her. Men pretty much look for women they think they will be compatible with if they are looking for a long term relationship.
But my opinion on this is that a girl is not as precious as a friend, and in your case your best friend.

Maybe it's because I am a little who am I kidding a lot! So I advise all the guys to wait and be patient everyone of us have his partner so it depend of the time of seen her. At this point, there's a likelihood that he's still curious to explore and therefore might have lost interest in the current relationship to pursue something novel. He did mention this classmate he worked on a project with and went to her apartment.
