dashingscorpio, I really thank you for the advice. Because this is so new in the break up phase, wanting to be friends, best friends, special friend, dear friend, or any other term of endearment isn't working for me. I want to tell him, without him thinking I am mad at him. I know he holds me in a special place, he appreciates my engery, wit, advice, inner beauty, but it's wasn't enough for us to be together, how can it be enough for us to be friends, any term he chooses.
How should I approach us not being anything but people who can pass by each other being cordial? The hurt that the man I am in love with and can't have kills me. I am under no assumption that he isn't seeing people, that would be foolish on my part. But it kills me to know the unsaid of he is. I have enough friends and I don't want to add him to the list of people I confide in. I just want it to be completely over with neither one of us holding on to a friendship to pacify the other, for the sake of doing so. We both know what it is, we love each other. He's scared, I'm not. He has walls he like to through up, mine are down. He is the person who controls if we see each other or don't. I'm tired, emotionally and mentally.
Advise on your opinion of my best recourse?
