I am concerned about someone a care about
Its okay to have the feelings you do...thats okay....Just from what you have posted goldilocks, you are hurting 😞
Can I ask if you have had a chance to communicate to your friend about your feelings? I guess its up to him if he wants to try to get back with his ex. Using facebook as a reference may cause you emotional pain at this time
Please dont hate yourself for feeling the way you do. Does your friend answer your calls/texts at all?
Thank You for your comment. Unfortunately this man has a restraining order against me, so I can’t talk to him.
No worries goldilocks
The forums are a safe and non judgemental place for you to post
I am sorry for the pain and anguish you are going through...It would be awful for you
Not that its important....how long was he separated from his ex?
Your well being is paramount....all other considerations are secondary (easy for me to say)
I am unsure of how long he has been separated from his ex? I do not know him well enough to determine this. He leads a very private life, after acting "cocky" and "proud" about being thin and cheating on his ex-wife with multiple women on multiple occasions. I don't understand why she accepts him back into his life as a "friend" for the sake of their daughter, when the pair of them clearly have feelings for one another. They are suddenly spending SO much time together since recently, and I would like to know why. This bothers me significantly, as I I still have feelings for this man. He wants the restraining order to remain in place. I don't. Yes, while I still may like him, what if it is ten years down the track and I have developed my own life, is he still going to want the restraining order put against me?
Good afternoon goldilocks.
You must feel very frustrated and confused about this deal.
I would like to ask, if you don't mind, have you two been together romantically or may this simply be an infatuation/ mad crush on someone that you have built up feelings for?
Thank You for asking. He was only someone I was infatuated with. I still am infatuated by him.
Thanks for sharing. If you don't me asking, let's say for a moment that this was a unhealthy infatuation - meaning that this would not benefit you in anyway, how do you think that you could overcome this feeling?
Some time has passed since we have last spoken and at this point I am trying my best to move on from him. I spend all my time sleeping, and this, along with having warm baths at night time, are my top two distraction techniques.
If you have any that you would like to suggest, feel free the whack them down below 🙂
