Head over heels for too long

Published on August 2, 2012 by ktev38119

I have been in love with a man that had also been a close friend for at least two years now. I have made my feelings aware to him and he has said that he know he and I would work bug he is afraid of hurting me. I know he has had commitment issues in the past, too. He is now dating some other girl and has been seeing her since at least April but according to his mom he still says they are just friends. All I want to do now is move on and forget. I love him with all of my heart but I want to stop so I don't feel terrible anymore. Dating is tricky in my town because it is small. What is the best way to get over someone? How do I just stop loving him? What can I do?


It's common for young people to establish close friendships with people of the opposite sex, but once you get a little older, one or both people in the friendship gets a significant other, and then the friendship gets on the backburner. These friendships usually can't last forever, as the partner is not comfortable with their bf of gf spending time with a friend of the opposite sex.

Your friendship has run its course. It's time to grow more distant from him since the friendship is hurtful to you, and you can't have closure and be done with your romantic feelings for him until you establish this distance. You want to be emotionally free when a guy who is right for you comes along. Invest your time in spending time with girlfriends, your education, your job, your hobbies, etc. Time will heal. Good luck.
