From friends to … missing him

Dear Breakup Girl,

I am very close to one of my guy friends. He is one of those very friendly, touchy, huggy guys, who is wonderfully nice to everyone. Well, over the past months I have developed very strong feelings for him. I think about him all the time. A few days ago I couldn’t deal with it anymore so I told him I couldn’t see, talk, or be around him anymore because I had feelings for him. He was stunned. It’s been over a week and I haven’t seen him. The problem is that I REALLY miss him and now I just feel depressed. What should I do? I feel like I’ll always love him. It’s getting in the way of meeting new people. Now I’m wondering if I did the right thing.

Dear Jenna,

Oh, girlie, I don’t know if you did the “Right” thing, but I do know that you did what felt right at the time. And now, yes, of course you miss him. It’s almost like you’re going through a breakup with someone you didn’t even get to go out with! I guess what you’re gonna have to figure out is, which sucks less: not being WITHwith him, or not being with him at all? If he is indeed as generous with his heart as he is with his touchy huggy extremities — and indeed I bet he is — I’m sure he’d understand if you went back to him and told him that you don’t want things to stay this way. Which reminds me: you say he was stunned — are you quite sure he’s not interested? Or did you just freak out and split before you had a opportunity to see the gears turning? It’s worth looking into. But if not, well then yes: you do need to lick your wounds, mourn, and smart for a while, and then get back out and try and meet new folks, no matter what. That’s the right thing.

Love,
Breakup Girl

  1. Seriously? It’s been only one week and THIS is what’s causing you to not meet new people? Wow. You need to give yourself some time Jenna. Is there some sort of rush to meet new people?

    As far as what BG said about “worth looking in to”, I disagree. You put it out there, and you yet you haven’t heard from this wonderfully nice guy in a week since baring your soul. Do you really think you can go back to him and say, “Just kidding”?

    BG IS correct when she says to lick your wounds, bide your time, THEN go meet some new peopel when you’re feeling more emotionally stable. GOOD men seek their equals, not their subordinates, and certainly not basket cases who are still pining away over unrequited love.
