How can you encourage somebody who likes you but is too afraid to admit it to himself to realize his feelings?
You are second-guessing the feelings of this other person and you have absolutely no idea what they are thinking about you. Instead, you are wishing this to be true. You can't make someone love you. There is a big difference between someone liking you (as a friend) and loving you romantically. Take it easy and let Mother Nature take her course.
Probably the same day that men realize that women have feelings and emotions, too! No, seriously, though, it's an age-old problem (and not just a gender issue) where people can't seem to put themselves in other people's shoes. If everyone would just take a minute and put themselves in somebody else's place, they might wake up and realize that life doesn't revolve around them and that other people actually have feelings, too. I Compliment you…
Why are some guys so strong in controlling themslves not to get carried away n get back together cause cant commit n knows both still have feelings and you cant stand being apart n exbf copes with it?
Feelings don't go away because you can't be together however, you have to realize that if you cannot be together that you have to allow yourself to move on. They are not so "controlling" as you put it, its just that he may realize what can and cannot be and is allowing himself to move on as you should as well. Girls tend to be more needy and dramatic when it comes to feelings.
Realize that it is somebody elses opinion and nothing more. If you feel comfortable with some of it and it can help you, use it. If it comes from someone with authority in that field, consider it a possibility. Don't take it personally, it's just meant to help. Just keep your feelings in side. Listen to what they have to say and think it over
If you like somebody and they are already going out with another person and every time you get the guts to ask them out they go date someone else what would be the best soluttion?
How do you help someone who is depressed get help when they are trying to work it out for themselves but it isn't working?
You have to respect their feelings let them be, let go and move on. I realize it may not be what you want to hear but you cannot force someone to feel something they don't. remember, the hardest thing in the world is the watch the one you love love somebody else... but also remember what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger...
If he spends time with them and is constantly talking with them or about them chances are he is still harbouring feelings for them. If you do see this behaviour and realize he does in fact still want her its best to let them go sort out their feelings as they cannot be committed to you in anyway until he deals with his feelings for her - basically you would be a rebound.
