i want to be friends with my bestfriend again. how can i revive our broken friendship?
i have am friends with this guy for about 3 weeks now and i told him my feelings for him . when i told him, he doesn't talk to me and makes me jealous when i saw him around girls. i really want to be friends with him again. can i have your advice?
By telling him about your "feelings for him" I assume you told him that you would like to be more than just friends, right?
Well, maybe he is simply not ready for anything else than friendship at this stage and perhaps he is just not into you.
In any case, if I were you I would simply tell him that you would like to be his friend and if you can start over. Don't push him. Simply tell him and let go of it. You cannot force a friendship.
If you have serious feelings for him I would consider taking some more time away from him before pursuing a friendship with him. If you are still feeling jealous when you see him with other women it's only going to create more stress for you in the long run.
You need to accept he may never want to be more than friends with you and it's even possible he may not want that.
But it sounds like he needs/wants some space to sort things out and if you truly want friendship with him you will respect that before approaching him.
from what you have said it seems like this person is immature and is trying to hurt you by behaving in the manner he is. If he is (truly) intentionally trying to make you jealous after you shared your feelings with him, you need not want to have anything to do with him. If he doesn't feel the same way that you do he would say that in a respectful way and continue to be a friend once you can respect his wishes. You don't need to give him any space or to be honest revive anything. Any mature individual would know how to handle a situation as such if there is respect between both parties and they are truly friends. Do yourself a favor and move on before you really get your feelings hurt. It isn't worth it regardless of who is right or wrong.
Anyway 3 weeks isn't long enough to consider someone a true friend. Anything is bound to happen within that time frame because true friendships involve substance, loyalty, respect, consideration and commitment. Doesn't seem like any of the above is involved here.
