He Acts Like he Doesn't Care
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
I went out with this guy for 1 year and about 2 months but we still talk and act like were going out. But obviously he doesn't care about me, and if he does he doesn't show it.
We have been through alot, and we liked and loved each other very much. But now we have had so many problems and it's time to call it quits. I just always have this urge to call him or get in touch with him. He acts like he doesn't care at all and that is what bothers me most.
How do i get over him. I need ways to help me move on and at least open myself up to other guys. So many guys have passed and i was still holding on to this guy. It's not going to work, who was i kidding.....so how can i get over him?
First, you shouldn't blame him too much for not showing his emotions. That is really not someone's fault, in a growing-up sense. Kids are raised to show emotions or not show emotions. They keep that training into their teenage years. As a caring girlfriend you can help TEACH your boyfriend to show more emotions, but you can't really fault him for being raised that way by his parents in the first place.
If you're really not willing to do that, and just want to get through the breakup pain, I have tips here -
but if you care about him and are still thinking about him, I would give it another shot. Instead of blaming him for not showing emotions, help him learn how TO show them. That will be something he will need to learn no matter what stage of life he is in.
