I had this bf and I really liked him… Well, I still do a little. We broke up because he moved and it was kind of weird dating from long distance. We were really close and goofy around each other but when he moved… Things started changing. Well, I did expect things to change but not this much. He started ignoring me and whenever I say hi or try to talk to him, he would answer a little bit then he would just start ignoring me. Our conversations became dull like the type you have with a friend you are not that close to. I know he’s found a new person(he didn’t tell me but it seems like it) and I’m happy for him and all, but I thought that we could still be friends like the way we were before the whole dating stuff. He was my first bf so I wasn’t really an expert in knowing the dos and don’ts in a relationship. I know I made some mistakes I regret and now I feel like he hates me now. By mistakes I mean: I kind of told all my close friends that we were dating when I was supposed to keep it a secret. But I was soo excited that I finally got my first bf and normally I can keep a secret but this one was hard for me to keep. We don’t talk anymore and now it feels like we are total strangers and I wish he would just talk to me. I feel really hurt and I keep thinking about it every day and I hate it. It really hurts knowing that I think about him every day and he doesn’t even think about me once(Well I think he doesn’t). It really sucks and hurts… I need help
