I recently confessed to my close guy friend. And I told him I respected his answer and that I just want to remain close friends. But he started acting awkward. He started ghosting me when I try to text him. But when he sees me face to face it's another problem. One day he can act totally fine and approach me and ask me to help him with stuff. The next day he seems totally annoyed with me.
I already told him that I didn't expect anything more from him since he's not interested. I just want to be close friends. And he also told our mutual friend (this was before my confession) that if a girl confessed to him, he won't run away but will choose to remain friends. That's how I got the courage to tell him.
But why is he acting this way now?
