colleen, i still really like my ex girlfriend (who left me because she didn't love me anymore) and i told her about how i (still) felt a few days after we started talking again because she said i COULD tell her, and now she won't talk to me again
Sorry friend, I hate to give you the bad news, but telling them how you still feel won’t change their mind or make things better, it’ll only cause further complications in your friendship. <:T I feel that the most responsible decision you can make out of this is to respect her choice and occupy your time with other activities and with other people. She may not want to talk because she doesn’t know how to confront the situation either - cause when one person is interested while the other isn’t, it makes things super awkward and socially/romantically imbalanced, and that’s an unhealthy way to get back into the friendship. Gotta restart things on equal grounds! Your feelings won’t go away overnight, but you must treat and view that person as a friend before considering inviting them back into your life. If she doesn’t love you the first time, then it’s not gonna be any better the second time - she may just not be the right person for you. It’ll definitely hurt for a bit, but with enough time, healing and patience, not only will you build a strong friendship by sharing equal respect, (if both parties are still willing), soon enough someone’s gonna come strolling into your life and sweep you off your feet!
