Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
I liked this guy for months and he showed signs of attraction to me. When i confronted him about it he was saying things like "i never thought about it" and "we're just friends". I completely understood eventhough i was hurt for a couple of weeks but i moved on. Now, our friendship is not the same. He doesnt call me anymore or say hi to me when we see each other the way we used to. Im confused? He said things about how we're just "associates" so i talk to him on an "associate" basis. Could that be a wrong thing to do although he says we're just friends? i dont get it i am respecting his wishes to be friends but apparently he cant handle it. I want to keep the friendship but i feel like he hates me.
What do i do? what does this mean??
He probably feels like you are mad at him for not responding to your telling him that you liked him. He probably feels awkward being around you. It is up to you to put extra effort into maintaining the friendship. Don't go around thinking he hates you because he doesn't. He is confused too. Whenever you see him, smile and say hello so he knows you aren't mad at him.
Good luck! George
