I think the women here are right on the money... women are much better with language than men are and often the obvious meaning is not the intended one (In my experience). "she loves me but not the same as b4" = Lets be friends. If she does not love you the same as she did before, how can you have what you had before? Its just not possible.
At the end of the day, its your choice but like everyone else here, I think doing the friendship thing is going to keep wounds open for longer and it will take you longer to get over this.
