Customer Question
I met someone a...

I met someone a few months ago I really care for. We spent A few weekends together and on the last date before he left for a three week vacation something seemed to shift with one thing I said. We really didn't talk over the next few weeks while he was out of the country. I was also trying to give them space because his daughter was with him and they wanted to spend time together. I reached out to him yesterday and I got the text back that said while I was gone I just realized I was no longer able to do the relationship. Was very upset that I will get that in a text we've slept together several times and I feel at least a phone call. I sent a long message saying as much and that I had feelings and that that had hurt my feelings. He wants to call tonight to talk but I feel like it's a pity talk and I'm not about that. I just want to feel healthy so now I'm notsure if I should talk to him or just let it go? Sorry for the long question

Expert's Assistant: The Psychologist will know what to do. Is there anything else the Psychologist should be aware of?

It sounds like you have found yourself in a tricky situation in terms of this relationship. I am it has given rise to some difficult and negative emotions. I have no doubt that it can be confusing to have to sort through the best course of action.

I think that given the circumstances your request for a phone call is very much justified… but we cant control others, and it seems like this person may not have the emotional awareness, empathy and maturity to understand this. So I am here advocating for you to put yourself first and do what is good for you…

I am not here to make this decision for you, but I want to support you in making this decision for yourself. So let’s figure this out together…

  • Do you feel you would benefit from having this conversation? In what way?
  • Do you think it will lead to more positive feelings in you or more negative feelings?
  • What specifically would you like to know from this person in any conversation you have?

Looking forward to your reply.
