My first affair ended very cut and dry. I don't want to do this anymore. Me either. Good, we're done then. Yep.
Then of course, a year later, I stupidly ended up having another one - minus the phsyical sex. I mostly just needed someone emotionally (as did he - we'd both had previous affairs and confessed them) and neither one of us wanted anything physical again, we became fast friends. And that was all we were. Best friends.
We would email almost every day. If he wasn't going to be around for some reason, he always let me know, or if all he had time to say was Hi, I'm super busy, I miss you, that's all he said. But then three weeks ago, everything stopped. He quit responding to me. And when I finally heard from him, it was a very brief "we went here, it was fun". Nothing again for another week. Then a brief "hope you are doing well". No response for another week. Then I got "my back hurts". Absolutely zero response or acknowledgement to anything else.
I'm starting to take this as a clue that he's just not that into me anymore and I'm trying to give him his space. I don't even want to ask him if he wants to be done because I'm so afraid he's going to say yes. He's my best friend. There was no love, no fights, no sex. There's no "relationship" so to speak to even be done with.
I don't understand why this sudden drop in communication. I'm so confused. I miss him like crazy!
