    I am part of a walking group and over time I liked 2 guys at different times. Over time they led me on into acting like they were interested but really were serial dating other people in the walking group. I found out they were dating others not from them. These guys knew I had feelings but decided to mess me around anyway. Since then the only way I have been able to deal with them is to give them the silent treatment and pretend they do not exist. I know this does not sound like adult behaviour but their actions made feel extremely hurt and doing this helps me to deal with it. I have heard they have told other people there is a barrier with me. I don't know why they would say this when their womanising antics caused this in the first place. I want to know what would be the best way to behave around them as speaking to them in general would be hard as I fancy them but ignoring them makes me look bad.

    Going to be difficult unless you don't go altogether. Ignore them if you want, I've given the silent treatment to a guy who I lived with at uni for half of the year, it works well if they don't try anything.

    The whole thing sounds toxic. Find a better dating environment.
