Told him I liked him and now we never speak Watch

    Basically, I told one of my close friends that I liked him more than a friend and now we never speak. He said that he didn't want things to go further and said that 'we can still be friends.' I thought that was fair and after a couple months of distance I tried to reform a friendship with him but I feel like it's so one-sided. I used to see him literally every week and we used to talk quite a bit and I haven't spoken to him in months now. I've tried to make an effort-inviting him out etc but there's always an excuse and it gets to the point where I just feel like I'm losing some self-respect in trying to maintain a friendship. I just feel very hurt and confused because at the end of the day, I was only being honest and had tried to bottle it up for a long time. I just don't know what to do as I don't want to lose the friendship we had over something as petty as this.

    You can try to confront him about this, but ultimately, if he's not giving you anything in the friendship then it's going to be very difficultto do anything and not worth the effort. It is very strange.
