Signed, Darren ANSWER Hi 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.The transition couldn’t have been easy for either of you. Irene, I really cared a lot about someone whom I dated.After the end of our dating relationship three years ago, I was devastated. For the last two years, I was doing all of the hard work and effort to maintain this friendship.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 sure it was difficult for you to accept that he no longer valued even the remaining vestiges of your friendship.

Should I just simply make it clear to him by sending him an email that we actually have nothing in common and that I am not his friend?Or just continue to do my own stuff and not making any contacts to him?He introduced me to his new boyfriend as his friend.I wanted to tell him face to face that we were not friends at all any more but decided to save him this embarrassment in front of his new boyfriend.

Last year, when I was planning to go to visit another good friend in New York, he happened to be going there at the same time. When he told me he really preferred to fly by himself, it felt like a slap in the face because of all the effort I had put into this friendship.

So I walked away and hadn’t talked to him for a year.
