Are you focusing on what makes you happy? He should not be on that list, as he's not making you happy. The memory of you and him is what makes you happy, and is that healthy?Try to understand where he's coming from, WITHOUT asking anyone. You dated him, talked with him about the relationship issues - you need to understand why he wants space.Partners are meant to enhance our lives, not define them. He is defining your happiness right now, isn't he?What are things you wanted to do, but couldn't because you wanted to make him happy? You should be focusing on what makes you happy, even when you're dating.

The guy sounds like a jerk. Even if you did act desperate, he should cut you some slack...heartache will make anyone act out of character. From one girl to another, I say the more you contact him, the more he thinks he has you wrapped around his finger. So when you go visit your friends in his area, do JUST that...have a great time with them and don't tell this guy you're there. If he finds out and realizes you didn't tell him, maybe he'll realize what he's missing. MAYBE. Don't hold your breath. Just do what makes you happy.
