    So I've liked this guy for a long time now and I'm pretty sure he likes me too however, our circumstances have changed and we are no longer in eachothers lives but I'm really struggling to forget about him. I really regret being to shy to do anything about it when I had the chance. How do I get over this regret?

    What happened? Do you see him anymore?

    He's just moved away so I don't think I'll see him again or at least not anytime soon.

    Learn from it. I have been in your shoes more times than I care to remember. Next time you feel this way you won't hold back as much.

    You could still call him up and tell him, however. It's never too late to tell someone how you feel. Even if you can't be together, he will know and you will be glad you told him

    You can either accept that it is life and opportunities will come and go, he won't be the last guy. And to be fair to you he has also let the opportunity slip so don't feel like the whole situation is on you.

    Or you use social media or if you have his number give him a call and if you feel it's worth it get after him aha.

    You can still keep in contact? Maybe even tell him how you feel now

    I know I definitely won't let myself do this again. We didn't know each other well enough for me to keep in contact with him which makes it worse

    I don't have his number or any way to keep in contact now or I probably would just tell him because I hate that I've kept quiet.
