So your actions have brought consequences and you need to be patient to see if something new will grow out of this friendship. Avoid expectations and keep an open mind.
You may need to have some therapy to get closure on the previous relationship and make things new again for the growth of this new relationship.
If there are other specific points to address let me know.
So I should still remain friends with him even though he will be actively seeking out a new relationship? Obviously our friendship cannot continue to be as close if he does find someone else as she would never understand and rightly so. I kind of want my feelings for him to go away so I can move on from him but at the same time I just want to see how things go with him if there was a chance of us getting back together
I agree that your friendship may make some changes but there is no reason why you two cant be friends except if you want your feelings for him to go away. If that is the case then you need to get on with your life but you can still keep in touch with an occasional text, email or the like. In this age relationships never completely go away they just develop over time. At least you will be in charge of acting on your feelings and that is important. Let me know if this is a workable solution.
Thanks. I'm still not sure what I can do but you have given me some other things to think about.
