They will never be in tune with you, never empathic to your experiences, and you will always feel empty after an interaction with them,” Grace says.

We’ve got a big bullfrog there you can see on the right, and then on the left, I’ve got you can see can you see both?

Just allow yourself the time and space to fully address your feelings and come to terms with them. Accepting them completely can make it easier to let them go.

You can’t pursue any type of relationship until they know how you feel. If you’re already friends, think back to how your friendship developed. You probably bonded over shared interests and one of you expressed the desire to spend more time together. Romantic relationships often develop similarly. Some platonic friends may be perfectly fine spending the night at your place, hanging out at all hours, or discussing the sexual details of your other relationships.

Once again, honest communication can clear a lot of the confusion. You’ve only been dating for a month or so, but they want to skip nights out in favor of running errands together in sweats. You may even suspect they’re falling back on a relationship routine they had with their ex, and you’ve just been dropped into the middle of it. As Sprowl explained previously, lots of breakups begin with a slow decline, in which one or both partners have already begun to grieve the relationship and let it go.
