HE IS MY BEST FRIEND AND I MISS HIM SO MUCH. FURTHERMORE I DON'T WANT TO LOSE THE FRIENDSHIP EVEN IF IT MEANS SACRIFICING A POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIP.
My aquaman and i have known each other for 24 years, since we have been kids. we always have been the best of friends even after we gave the relationship a try 7 years ago and it couldn't work because of long distance. About two months ago, we decided to give it a try. It was great until i committed the biggest mistake of my life. I divulged a family issue of his that has got him rethinking the whole relationship because he is not sure to trust me anymore. He says he needs time apart, a break and states that he cannot give a time frame. Recently we have seen each other and his demeanor has improved. When i hug him, he hugs me back, i tell him i love him and he tells me he loves me too and if i give him a peck he also responds.
Apart from that he doesn't call me, try to see me or even try to rekindle the friendship.
I don't know what to do anymore. I am also confused by the signals.
Is it over or is it a break? is he still into me or not ? should i be patient? how should i deal with this?
