Re-gain her respect
You need to keep in contact with your ex; you definitely don't want to re-establish a couple relationship but want to keep things cool with her.
There's a problem, you were always kind and polite with her; "always". Therefore she doesn't respect you.
I am trying to give an advice to a friend but not sure if telling him that he needs to be a bit of a douche with the girl in order to gain some respect. They have two kids and go to church and all that stuff (They don't go together anymore)
