I get what you're going through mate.. I am in a similar situation.. It is harrowing and heartbreaking to know that the object of our affection doesn't want the same things as us..
There is no real right or wrong way to go about it..As I always end up second guessing my decisions.. be it - I decide to talk or cut ties.. The tone of our conversations.. I keep over-interpreting his texts... I keep looking back at the old messages and keep wondering where did it all go wrong..
But you know what, everyone is not in the same page as the other.. I've swallowed that bitter truth.. Sure, there are days I want to throw up, but after spending the last 2 months in absolute horror, I think its just a waste of time now.. If they don't want it, they don't.. No matter what you keep telling yourself..
Try to find peace and letting go.. What helped for me (not that I'm completely over it yet) is I started keeping myself busy with various activities that keep my brain and body active and tired by the end of the day..
You are no more the center of his universe as he is to you..
Be real.. Be regular.. and I tell you, that I am hell-bent on helping myself get over this.. Was a great learning experience though
So, yes, do inbox me if you feel the need to vent, as I always wanted (but didn't have) someone to vent/rant it out to.. I was afraid I am boring other people, or that people are not interested.. But its important to have a non-judgemental soundboard..
Hope you get over it.. Whichever way the coin tosses mate
And yes, hope I was useful
