Maybe he figured out that you were having second thoughts. I dunno. I'd think on it more and write a better response, but today was uh. Not a fun day.
Thanks for the responses, I wont bring it up. I'll try to distance myself.
Thanks for the responses. You're right about that, Mopy. I'd say I was eager to jump into it because of stress piling up, but the truth is I'd have done the same if nothing else was going on at the time. I should try harder to think about what I'm doing before I go for it.
And Delain, that's a nice thought but I am doubtful. It's never worked out like that in the past. "Taking a step back" or "Just being friends" has so far always lead to the person delivering those lines going silent and giving only the shortest responses until I give up and leave them alone. "Let's just be friends" is synonymous with "I'm done with you."
Okay so we had that talk. LOL it started as I was typing. Anyway. She says we should "Take a step back and just be friends for now." Which I mean, I guess we did rush into it. So that's fine. Still so, I can't help but assume it's not really about it being rushed, but that there are better options. I'm just used to that. It's uh. It hasn't been good on my self-esteem.
Sorry for the poor read.
Thank you. Still feel crummy about it, but you're right. What's important is that she gets help.
