    Your message doesn't make sense.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    As I understand it your ex-boyfriend doesn't want to get back together with you. If he did he would not mind you sending him a message.

    He Him: I don't But I have to answer your question becomes it make me worry.

    My question is he replied I don't know if his reply, "I don't", means he doesn't hope I don't respond him or he doesn't want to be friends with me.

    I really don't want to misunderstand it, so plz please help me figure this out. with this .. Thank you.

    Here is the behind backstory. He's my ex bf ex-boyfriend. who He is a English native English speaker from the USA. We broke up for one month due to religion religious problems, and I asked him which denomination he join in, (the underlined part doesn't make sense). and After he messaged me back, he told his friend he doesn't want me to reply to him and he doesn't want to be friends with me, so I asked him that the question above.
    Like Tarheel, I take it to mean that he does not want to be friends with you any more. Presumably, that also means he has no interest in being your boyfriend again either.

    Please note my corrections above. It's important to follow these rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: English messages understanding

    The language is a bit of a mess, but I would assume that the other person was trying to say that he doesn't want to be a friend.
