We’re now “just friends” after coming out of a 3-mo romantic relationship (we still have strong feelings for each other, but circumstances don’t allow these to be expressed right now). Not being able to kiss and hold him makes our friendship painful (although the friendship is totally worthwhile). Should I try to suppress these feelings when around him? Change them? We’ve talked about it and agree that we refuse to not hang out, but it also sucks feeling sad around each other.
How can there be justice in two people who love each other being apart?
What kind of traditional values or circumstance is getting in your way?
If it’s monogamy, break up or create an open relationship.
If it’s distance, move. If it’s religion or family pressure, ignore it. Is it possible he is lying to you about “reasons”?
