I've known this guy for more than a few years, and we dated on and off for a few years. He's really nice and understands almost all of my problems and I'd like to think I do the same for him. We're really good friends, or so I'd like to think. Very early into the relationship, he insisted I was "the one" and that he'd always love me. After the initial breakup, we didn't speak for a long time. We obviously started talking again and things have been alright since as "just friends".
Seems to me you need to find someone else...coz the guy doesn't sound very sure of himself and what he wants. While YOU may, if the guy doesn't reciprocate, what's the point?
...and given that you've also expressed how you feel about being led on by him and he still does it? Pretty much gives you a reason to go find someone else.
True. Honestly, I felt that there would be some kind of argument or something the next time we spoke, but he didn't even bring the whole thing up.
Why are you still talking to him, he rejected you yet you still go after him. If he truly liked you he wouldnt act like that.
Perhaps there is someone else? If u ever go out with him again let him chase u and dont give in to him. If you give him a taste of what its like with out you then he wont take you for granted anymore.
"The dating we did do was from afar."
How exactly does that work. You watched each other from across the restaurant tables?
