After my failed attempt of telling someone I liked them from my recent post "Dating Politics," I noticed that our friendship seemed to have changed.
I've talked to her a day after I told her how I felt about her. One of the things I mentioned was that I understood her decision to be single right now and that I hope it doesn't create any awkwardness between us. She told me to not worry about it because it won't be awkward, followed by a smiley face. I took it as a good sign and continued conversation with her.
I still comment on her posts on Facebook and I still chat with her when I see her online; I was still who I was before I told her I liked her. One of the things I noticed was that she hasn't been the same as she was beforehand. Ever since I told her I liked her, she stopped commenting on my posts. She doesn't sound as enthusiastic anymore when we chat. It just seems like the connection we had as friends just.... fizzled away.
Can I blame her? Not really. But, if she told me that things won't be awkward, how come she changed the way she communicates with me?
When one friend a while ago revealed to me that she liked me, I told her the honest truth that I only saw her as a friend. We still continued hanging out and still chat with each other. When I told someone a while ago that I liked them, they told me that they aren't looking for a relationship. We still hung out and had a great time as if nothing changed. But, not everyone is the same. And maybe, this is her way of allowing herself space between me and her. I guess I'm just a little concerned about scaring her away despite still being who I am. I'm giving her some space and maybe hoping she just needs to sort things out.Why do you believe she changed the way she communicates with me? Am I doing the right thing by just continuing to talk to her? Or do I need to give her some more space and time to herself? Do you change the way you communicate to someone after they tell you that they like you?
