Deardebra : This can happen in a relationship and their usually is a hidden reason that is causing the problem.
Deardebra : You said he is your best friend which great when it cones to a relationship because you love spending time together. You probably can talk openly about many things. But this is something you need to work out because telling him this will alter the relationship so we are going to find the solution so you can rekindle how you once felt about him.
How can I determine the problem?
What I want you to look at is when did it start?
I also want you to think if something happened in your relationship that altered your feelings for him. This can happen, one event in life can change feelings for someone.
Some times in relationship people say or do something and it can change a relationship. This is why you need to get to the deep root of the problem and figure out when things changed for you.
This connection you once had can come back and what I want you to plan is that very first date that you had when you feel in love with each other.
This will help rekindle what you feel you have lost. It will jog your memory to remind you why you feel in love with him.
You hit the nail on the head - the problem happened in the middle of our relationship, which I thought was great, dumps me coldly. He refused to speak to me. I was completely devastated, and of course after calling a million times, I went to his home. His car was there. He would not answer the door. I was so humiliated. I didn't know what I had done, but I had to have done something, right? So, I spend a great amount of money with Edible Arrangements. I ordered white and milk covered strawberries and bananas and one bigger arrangement with every fruit imaginable. It was hand-delivered to him at his office. The most embarrassing part was that I had them attach a Mylar balloon that said "I'm Sorry". I never hear a word from him. I was defeated. After sulking for a month, I met a very handsome man who really liked me. I was so flattered. We even spent Christmas together, because I don't have family. I could have cared less about Mark. By January, handsome guy and I just don't work out. Them came February - and a phone call from Mark. I didn't even recognize his voice. Slowly, we began speaking again, after he apologized profusely. He said he was scared of the commitment because he had only loved one other woman and she lied, cheated and stole money. I have a soft heart and took him back. I love him and he says he loves me, but I keep waiting for him to dump me again. But, I found out that other men were interested in me. What do you think?
Deardebra : That was a difficult time for you and I understand why you are stand offish right now when it comes to your relationship. You are still hurt and dealing with these emotuions from him leaving. You never want to go through that again and you are just waiting for him to think you did soemthing wrong and leave again. But people change and emotions can be very intense when you fall in love. Instead of him dealing with these feelings of love he walked away because he was so
Deardebra : scared of getting hurt by you, but he should have trusted and took the risk in love instead of leaving. Now you live in fear that this is going to happen again.
Deardebra : You need to talk too him about how you feel, you do not have to mention the past about that your feelings have changed. I want you both to talk baout how you felt when he left. I also think you are dealing with the what if when it comes to the other guy. You might be second guessing your decision. You are wondering what life would have been like if you never went back.
Deardebra : Hurt can be so deep when it comes to a break up and still be there when you get back together and the reason is because it never got resolved and you are worried he will do it again, so you never really fully let your guard down when it comes to loving him. You are still protecting yourself and preparing for him to leave and this is why you are having trouble with your feelings for him. If you let him fully in your heart you are worried that he will just walk away and do the same thing again. But if you truly love this man then you need to let him in and get comfortable with this relationship. I feel what his issues were he worked out, he is not going anywhere now because he told you how he felt. He was just scared and I feel he is no longer afraid he is in this relationship with you.
Deardebra : And he is not leaving.
