I went out with this great guy for a while, and then he said he didn’t want to be in a serious relationship. He’s going to college at the end of the summer, and he doesn’t want to be tied down. I text him, because I still care about him and want to be friends. A lot of times, he doesn’t text me back. But, for some reason, I feel that I can’t help myself and can’t stop. What can I do to stop this habit of texting him once and for all?
Be straightforward and ask him if he values your friendship/wants to still be your friend. It’s best to set up a time to talk about this in person, but if texting is your only option then you can still give it a try. If he still doesn’t respond, that speaks volumes to how feels about you and your friendship. Otherwise, he’ll either give a yes or no answer and then you can go from there. If he says he does still want to be your friend then you can talk to him about how you feel you’re putting in all the effort and he’s putting in none. If he says no, then that will be the end of it.
