The Relationship Question
I dated one of my best friends. It didn’t go well because he got too controlling and wanted to be around me all the time. We tried to be friends but it didn’t really work. We see each other a lot but we don’t talk, we act like we don’t see each other even though we do see each other. He always looks away when he sees me. We haven’t talked in a few years and I tried clearing the air, not sure yet of the outcome but I don’t get why he always hides from me even though he has a girlfriend.
The Relationship Advice
Thank you for sharing your situation. You can’t do anything about how other people behave in any relationship, it’s up to them to decide what they want to do. People don’t always know how to behave when they’re in a difficult situation or feel uncomfortable.
You get to decide how you behave and it’s always a good idea to treat yourself well and move your life in a positive direction. You might consider letting him know what you’re thinking in a kind and friendly way and then moving on. Give him time to think. If he wants to be in contact with you he’ll come around; if not, you’re still a great person.
One of the biggest lessons in life is that we can’t control how other people behave. The key is to find people who value the real you, treat you well and want to spend time with you. You’re worth it.
