How does he feel truly?
So there is this guy that I REALLY like. We were really good friends for three years. We would always talk and mess around and get into trouble together. I have liked him for the past year. My friends kept begging me to tell him but I never would. His best friend told me he likes me back, but my friend interfered by telling the guy that I like him (against my wishes). Apparently he said he likes someone else but my friend refused to tell me who it was. Me and him still talked like normal afterward and I never mentioned what she did and neither did he. The day before Christmas break, I gave him a Christmas card like I usually do and told him how I felt myself (along with some candy). It is now February and he hasn't spoken to me since. He acknowledges other people that acknowledge me but refuses to speak to me for some reason. I haven't made an effort to either, though, since I have no clue what to say. How does he feel? I used to think he liked me back but now I don't think he does. Should I do anything for him for valentines or just give up? Thank you.
Very good question, to be honest, I'm glad I'm not in your position.
Well, as an online peer to you, I need to be completely honest, right? I don't think he likes you back...
The thing is, the same thing that happened to me happened to your crush. Let me explain.
When I was in middle school I was friends with this guy for a while. We were really good friends. Then one day I gave him a compliment (in a completely platonic way) saying that he reminded me of one of my relatives. He replied, "Is he handsome?"
That really scared me. We were always just friends, and when I found out that he liked me, I started avoiding him. We haven't talked since.
I think that your crush may have found your feelings for him awkward. That's the sad truth, my friend. But if he doesn't appreciated you, you should move on. You sound like a great person, and if he doesn't like you, he doesn't deserve you.
You don't deserve that.. Move on.
Chances are he has been put in an awkward position by your confession, and just doesnt know how else to handle it. He clearly doesn't feel the same way about you .. That doesn't necessarily mean he doesnt care about you, just not romantically.
If you are so concerned about your lost friendship then confront him about it .. And relieve the pressure he's been put under. Tell him how much your friendship means and ask him what he thinks about it.
It may not patch things up but at least you will know and find closure.
