puremotion Posted October 24, 2004 Share Posted October 24, 2004 it's been about 4.5 months now since my boyfriend and I broke up. We dated for about 1 year and broke up on good terms. before we started going out, we were very close friends. in fact, a fear of mines was that our friendship would be ruined if things didn't work out. Well, it's definitely changed now since we ended our relationship and I guess initially I was hoping it wouldn't. We both really value the friendship that we developed and don't want to lose that. However, we barely talk to each other now and when we do it's just through brief emails. I've called him up once to see how he's doing, catch up on life, talked over coffee, etc.. since the break up and of course, things were kinda awkward but at the same time, i felt happier cuz I still enjoy his company, connection and friendship. I really do miss him and realize that I still have feelings for him but I don't want to get back together with him at this time. (I guess you can say that 'timing' hasn't been in our favor?) i feel sad when there is so much distance between us and I see how our friendship has taken a dive. On his end, he rarely initiates contact with me but doesn't ignore me either... but I know he does care about me still and wants my friendship. At first, I thought about just distancing myself from him for now until my feelings for him fade ...but then at the same time, I don't want us to drift apart either. If we were really "true" friends, we'd find an effort to stay in touch? I'm so confused on what to do. I really miss him and am sad that I lost a dear friend. we also have some common friends so I hear about him through them sometimes...also, does it take a new boyfriend to come along to really get over your ex?
