I met this guy at my job and he’s 3 years older than me. I have a crush on him but He’s going away to further his education so I decided to confess my feelings. He never said he didn’t have any romantic feelings for me me but he said it’s best for him to not get into a relationship right now. I didn’t want to lose the connection we had so I suggested we be friends. I wanted to know if he just rejected me nicely, as in there is no hope?
