It’s kind of a funny story.
Le background: I began the year by dating within my grade–let’s call him Z– but the relationship was far too “cutesy” and eventually, I told him that we really were better off as friends. The entire relationship had a dynamic of amiability, but there was no spark, and I let it drag on for far too long. (Three months, actually.)
During this time, and under completely unrelated to Z, I began to talk to another boy, B. It was entirely platonic–early on I’d figured he was utterly out of my league, and I didn’t really give it another thought. I’m a disgustingly philisopical, and we had ridiculously long conversations about our beliefs and junk. During one of these talks, I learned that he was rather good friends with Z, despite the age difference. (Two years.)
The week after Z and I broke up, B kissed me, and we got…carried away. The guilt over his blatant disregard of the “bro code’ got to him, though, and today he’s decided that the hooking up shouldn’t ever happen again. Which is a bummer, becaue I’ve been nunlike during the three-month relationship.
My question, after this rant, is this: WHAT TO DO? I’ve unconciously grown dependent on his advice, and his presence as an emotional outlet; we’ve been speaking for fourish months now. I don’t particularly want to cut off all ties, but I’m just…feeling really, really lost.
Thanks for bothering to read this/sorry for the length. Opinion?
