What do you do when the person you love doesn’t love you back?

I’m dumping my feelings on the internet again lol.

I don’t know how to move on I guess and I’ve never been in this situation before.

I first saw this guy back in 2022 and I liked him the first time I saw him. There was tension between us and eventually he made a move and we spoke…. months later and I had a boyfriend.

I wasn’t happy in my relationship but I chose my boyfriend at the time over him because it felt safe. I told him I had a boyfriend.

Months after I ended my relationship I kept bumping into the guy again. I told him I wasn’t with my boyfriend anymore and we started speaking. I fell for him so hard…

We didn’t get into a relationship because before we had the chance he ended things with me out of nowhere. It sucks because I’ve never liked someone the way I liked him - he felt different… and I knew he liked me too.

I think what’s worse is he said some really hurtful stuff this still sting - like mentioning an ex and saying he wished he could go back in time and never speak to me. It still really hurts because to me our time spent together meant a lot.

I was afraid I had fallen in love with him. And I think I have because it’s been about 6 months and I still haven’t moved on. He has chosen not to salvage things with me and has stopped coming to the gym (where we met) and I’m afraid he’s avoiding me.

It just really sucks. I’m focussing on so much more in my life but I miss him all the time. I can’t understand why he flipped on me and why he doesn’t want me, but I guess that’s just the way things are…

A lot of you are curious about what provoked him to say those hurtful things. Guys I actually don’t know. He was a nice guy until he decided to end things and I didn’t see it coming! He switched into a completely different person and he was very heartless and rude.
