i had been friends with this guy for almost 13 years and around 8 months ago we got back into contact with eachother after not properly speaking to eachother for a few years. i started to develop feelings for him and when i asked him if he felt the same way he said he did. we met up a few times and i really began to develop strong feelings towards him.
i decided to let him know that i just wanted to be friends because there was a side to him that i didnt really like and it turns out that he didnt have any feelings for me at all and was leading me on for 8 months straight and wasted my time.
he does have a flirtatious character and i was aware of this but i cant help feeling humiliated and embarrassed. i just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this and how they dealt with it (??)
