Trying to avoid a guy I see everyday

After Chris took another girl to prom when we where seeing each other for about 3 weeks, I decided that I wanted nothing to do with him. I felt like an idiot because I thought he was a great guy and I developed feelings for him.

At the time, I thought it would all be ok if I just cut all contact with him would make things better. I was wrong because we have 1st and 4th period together, and in our 4th period he sits next to me. I was about to ditch my 4th period class since it was just an elective, but my friend dragged me to class and told me I had to face him.

When I entered the class room, I saw him in his seat with his head down. So I walked to my seat and  started to talk to some of my class mates near me and I ignored Chris. I was smiling and laughing with my classmates until we had to work in our groups. Chris and I where the only two people in our group that day, and we worked independently for awhile.

After an hour passed without saying a word to each other or making eye contact, and he asked “what are we?” with a very low toned voice. I said “I don’t know”. Then he asked if we could be friends with benefits and I said we can be nothing more that friends. Then he told me he took another girl to prom, and he said he was sorry but he didn’t look me in the eye and say it. I just said “Ok”. Then after that he was talking to me like nothing happened and we where on good terms.

After about 1 week, I felt too awkward siting next to him because all he would do is flirt with me. Today I got sick of it and I couldn’t stand sitting next to him again so I lied to my 4th period teacher and told him I was going to take a test in another class and I wasn’t coming back. But I really went to Starbucks with a friend.

When I was walking down the hall today he looked at me and he looked so sad and gloomy. He stared me down for a long time. I’m not sure why, maybe because I left him by himself in 4th period. We only have 6 more days of school left, and then I don’t have to worry about seeing him anymore. However, I will be seeing him next year since he’s in the same class as me, and I’m good friends with his cousin and we share the same friends, and we both are planning on joining the navy after we graduate, but who knows he might not graduate…lol I think I need to go to a different school next year

  1. Seems like a pretty shitty dude. Sorry to hear about all that, I’ve been in a very similar situation. Try your best to enjoy the next several days & don’t be afraid to give him the cold shoulder (or crackdown on his ass! <– Take that as you will.)

    Best of luck, amigo.
