Really liked this guy and thought he liked me back (sent out the signs he was into me, flirting, touching, holding, talking, laughing joking etc)
However, just recently tried to get into contact with him (its been a few months since we last talked) and nothing back. Our first meeting although we hit it off, we were both too shy to make the next move. Now I have summoned up the courage to contact him and he hasn't responded and feel quite crappy since I really thought he liked me :(
How do I move on? I really really like him, even though he obviously doesn't feel the same.
Most Helpful Guy
Unfortunately, people are fickle, both men and women.
You should not assume that you read the signs wrong (guys are very aware of when they're flirting) but rather that he changed his mind, as some guys do. There are guys that change their mind at least half as much as many women do, which is still too much.
He probably met or got interested in someone else in those few months that you weren't talking.
First of all, make sure he actually got your message. Sometimes when I'm really busy, I don't check messages that frequently. Second, make sure he's had enough time to think how to reply. If he does or did like you, it may take him a while to reply.
But assuming neither case is true, then he's doing that stupid thing where he thinks it's better not to reply because he's moved on. Then forget about him. I know it's difficult, but if someone cannot bother replying, then they're not worth your emotional energy. That's at least how I feel. You should not look for him to come around, because you want someone who would treat you better than that.
As far as I'm concerned, if it's not okay for me to ignore a friend, then it's also not okay for me to ignore someone I like or once liked.
If he's going to treat you like that, then you're better off without him. Moving on is always tough, but remind yourself that you deserve better. Find someone who will treat you better.
