    No. To be honest, your situation sucks - but you really do just have to try and forget about him - without becoming an alcoholic
    Maybe try and meet some new people. Time will help.
    Good luck with that

    Well, a life of bitter resentment for what could've been may be on the cards. It's not impossible.

    At least it'd prove that it was indeed love.

    By this same token; be very careful whom you seduce.

    Really.

    Mods: If you feel the need to de-anon this post, please can you delete it. (It seems stupid to say 'I am posting this because I don't want people to know who I am', when that is what the function is for - so I'm not bothering)

    I think I probably felt similarly about somone (whom I thought was unnatainable, but if I hadn't been so pathetic, might not have been) for a good four and a bit years. But then I met somone else. I don't think there's much of a cure for it. Unless you want to up and move country or something. Just time.

    Poor you :hugs:

    I don't think there's any 'meant to' with these things. I was desperately in unrequited love with a much older and married man for 2 years, and frankly it only went away when I met someone else. Even then (and I've been with that 'someone else' for nearly 3 years at the moment) I don't think I'll ever forget how I felt. In a way these things are a scar on your consciousness. They don't go away because you learn from them.

    Feel free to PM me if you ever need to talk.

    You need to take your mind off him and stop thinking about him, every time you find yourself daydreaming go do something else until you no longer think about him anymore cos it's doing more bad than good... within a few months you'll feel better and begin to forget about him but i believe that if you love someone loads you'll never totally forget about them.

    Gah! No, DON'T become an alcoholic just to forget some guy!

    Have you had a bf since you met this guy? It could just be that you're subconciously using him as an object to direct your feelings at in the absence of anyone else?
