So there’s this guy. I’ve known him for a long time (since we were 10) and now we’re both going on 17. He used to like me a lot. He told me that he had liked me for two years, and then he asked me to be his girlfriend. I didn’t actually like him at the time, but I said yes because I felt bad. (I realize that I shouldn’t have done this) After a few days it hit me what I had done so I apologized and broke up with him, explaining why I said yes. So a couple years went by and I was just trying to make ammends with people who I had previously hurt. I messaged him and told him that I was so sorry for how things had ended and being so blunt, and he seemed to accept it. He said that it was totally fine and that it shouldn’t have stuck with me. Things seemed fine, and I told him that I hoped that we could be friends. He said of course and I figured that everything was fine. At first I was just trying to be friendly, but eventually I kind of developed feelings for him. See I never had an easy life and in the short period that we “dated”, I told him everything about my life. I guess I just missed him. He kept liking all of my really old, and new, pictures (I know, that sounds so stupid. That’s just what happened though) I took this as a hint that he may have liked me, because we had been talking and messaging, so I asked him if he wanted to go to the movies with me. He said that he thought I meant as a date, and that he was currently seeing somebody. I did and still do like him, but I didn’t mean it as a date. I just wanted to go as friends and catch up, and I told him that. He apologized a ton but I just didn’t answer. This situation that had originally started with me just trying to be friends with him turned into me developing feelings for someone who had never been mine. I guess I’m just a bit upset. Any advice on how to get over him? I have no idea what to do.
