Or just continue to do my own stuff and not making any contacts to him?Signed, Darren ANSWERHi Darren, It’s hard to make the transition from dating someone to being “just friends”---especially when one person wants more from the relationship than the other.Like us on Facebook to get our articles delivered directly to your News Feed. Irene, I really cared a lot about someone whom I dated.
My guess is that he didn’t want to embarrass you, himself, or others at the social event---either by ignoring you or going into the details of your prior relationship.
The transition couldn’t have been easy for either of you.
When your friend turned down your request to fly back from NY together, he clearly signaled he wanted to make a clean break.
I’m glad you didn’t react instinctively and, instead, are thinking about how to respond, if at all.
My opinion: There’s no reason to contact him again.
So I walked away and hadn’t talked to him for a year.
