Hello Therapist, 

I am a 30-year-old woman, unmarried. There is some confusion. I have a best friend who is a guy and I have feelings for him from the beginning, which he is aware of. But it’s one-sided as he has been committed even before I came into his life. But we shared a great bond and he is always nice to me. Now, it has been 1 year, he got married. We talked twice after that nicely. But suddenly a few months later, he has started ignoring me. Is there any possibility that he has grown feelings for me suddenly????

Hello Pinkvilla Reader, 

Sometimes we might miss out on what the other person is going through. You two seem to have a communication gap. There could be many reasons for his aloofness. Maybe he thinks he needs more time to sort out his priorities, maybe he has some misunderstandings, maybe his spouse is over-possessive and does not want him to keep in touch.

Usually, priorities change after marriage, and life in general also undergoes a transformation after marriage. I feel he must be concentrating more on his life as responsibilities must have added up. This is natural... relationships have to be modified as time goes by. Still, if you feel confused you could ask frankly what is going on in his mind as you have mentioned that you two had a great bond. I’m sure he will not ignore your questioning.

You are pestering him. He is ignoring you because he wants to be with his wife. Just let it go please and do not try to ruin somebody's marriage.

He’s moved on and you should do too. He didn’t wait for you means he never saw you as his wife. He’s a married man so stay away.
