During my junior year of high school, one of my friends introduced me to one of her guy friends, L. I was immediately interested upon meeting him and in the next few months, we started getting a lot closer. We sat together at lunch and went home together but the only problem was, another guy, D, I'd met from outside of school was interested in me.
I was young and naive when it came to relationships because I had never been in one before so when D asked me out, I said yes despite the fact that I wasn't all that interested in him. This didn't stop L and I from getting closer though and we became really close friends to the point that he would be the third wheel when D and I went on dates.
At first I was really happy with where things were because I was able to keep both of them but as time went on, I became more and more dissatisfied with my relationship with D. Our relationship was extremely rocky and it reached a point where we'd break up every week, only to get back together. Throughout this time, L stayed by my side and offered me his advice and I guess without realizing it, I fell for him. I tried breaking up with D because of that several times but we would always end back up together because by then, we'd already been together for a year and I wasn't sure if L felt the same way about me.
Right before school started, I even went on an out of state trip with L for 2 days because D wasn't allowed to go. I felt a connection with L on our trip so when I returned home, I broke up with D again but ONCE AGAIN, we ended back up together again.
When college started, L left for a school in another state while D and I stayed behind. I thought things would finally be resolved now that L was out of the picture and I guess they were for a little while because soon after college started, D and I officially broke up. I was extremely upset about the breakup because we had been together for over 2 years at that point and of course the first person I called up was L. We talked about it but he was pretty speechless even though he wasn't surprised considering how many times D and I had broken up in the past. But after our talk, for the next two months or so, L went cold turkey and we barely talked except for the occasional conversation every 2 weeks. One of those conversations consisted of me telling him that I had lost my virginity to D.
When L returned from school for the summer, we began to get close again. I also introduced him to my friend S that summer but he wasn't too fond of her. L and I would hang out alone two to three times a week but towards the middle of the summer, we drifted apart again because we were both so busy with work. But then at the end of the summer, I was badly injured and he started being there for me once again. He visited me all the time and once I was allowed to leave my house again, he started going out with me to eat and hang out. Unfortunately, before we could start getting as close as we once were, he had to go back to school.
In the beginning when he went back to school, he would text me every day to talk but eventually he stopped. The weird part was, he also started texting S. They started getting a lot closer and when he returned in December when the semester ended, the 3 of us hung out together. Shortly afterward, I got injured again and he came by the following day to check up on me and he brought my favorite food. He also made a stop by S's house before coming to mine and made her come over with him.
That day was the last time I ever saw him before he went back to school for the new semester. Things were really different this semester because he stopped texting me but not S. In fact, he texts her every day and even volunteers to call her but when I text him, he gives me one word answers and makes no effort to keep the conversation going.
It's really bothering me because I really care about him and I realized that he's the one I want to be with.
Do you think he ever liked me? Do you think he still likes me now? Is it too late for us?
