stella74 Posted July 9, 2008 Share Posted July 9, 2008 Previously I posted about a close friend that flirted with me despite his disinterest. I made it clear that my priority was a relationship and I distanced myself but we kept in contact and remained friends. He stopped flirting but he also stopped showing interest in the friendship, much to my disappointment. However, in these past 6 months, he has not been there for me during my grief over my friends' deaths or my impending job layoff. About 4 months ago, I decided to go NC so I could get over him. The other day I broke NC to explain why I hadn't been in touch and that I'd initiate contact again when I was ready to continue the friendship. He emailed me today that he is frustrated by my behavior and that the communication breakdown between us has made him decide to end the friendship. He asked that I never contact him again. I'm actually relieved in this odd way. Although I'm sad too. Do you think there was anything either of us could have done to salvage this friendship? The previous thread is here: Link to comment
