    Yeah I figured it was because of this. I don't know if I have it in me to block him yet but I did delete his contact and messages. I'll hopefully get there. Thank you!

    I really wish I didn't fear getting hurt. I just really hate feeling rejected/heartbroken sooo much and would like to avoid it as much as possible.

    Looking back, I am actually somewhat glad I went through this though, because it taught me a lot but the process was painful :( Maybe it felt so bad because it was the first time I dealt with something like this. I think I can handle rejection/hurt feelings better in the future, I just don't want to get jaded/cynical...

    Yeah I do need to stop assuming, and I did ask him why, and he said he was "wondering what I was doing/where I was". I didn't really know how to take that so I assumed he was just bored or something.

    Thank you so much and I hope to be as resilient and positive as you one day :)

    My therapist said the same thing about romance. It's like I want to experience it, but I am also afraid of it. I guess it just comes down to how willing I am to take the risk. I just want the reward to be worth the risk and I am honestly not always sure that it is.

    I don't think there is more joy to be had, as I think we just grew apart. Before I saw him almost everyday and if not then we were always on the phone and texting. I just feel like the dynamic changed and I am just not as open as before due to feeling hurt. I think I'll just take this experience as a lesson in the future.

    Yeah I always have a tendency to need to label things because I just don't like not knowing. But I can see how assumptions are not a good idea. However, I did ask him why, its just his answer didn't really seem like it had much of an explanation. Maybe I was reading too much into it (I do this a lot).

    Thank you again :)
