In Touch has learned that after months of ignoring ex-fiancée Miley Cyrus’ incessant texts and calls, Liam Hemsworth finally agreed to speak face-to-face.

The insider tells In Touch that the former couple secretly met in late August at Miley’s LA house. According to the source, by the end of the visit, both Liam and Miley admitted to still having feelings for each other.

“The passion was still there,” the source tells In Touch. “They’ve really missed each other.”

But that doesn’t mean they will jump back into a relationship. “He told Miley that they need to find some common ground before he can ever take her back,” the insider tells In Touch, adding that Liam isn’t comfortable with Miley’s raunchy image. “Liam’s a traditional guy who wants a wife and family someday. He needs Miley to prove that she’s marriage material before he can open his heart again.”
