I hooked up with a girl last weekend. We've been attracted to each other for a few weeks, but we finally acted on it last weekend when she came out to Eau Claire from Minneapolis to visit me and take me back for a friend's wedding. I thought it was a sure thing. I thought I would finally have someone special in my life. I was wrong. Turns out, she had issues with a long-distance relationship, stemming from a past distant-relationship, and didn't want to go through that again. I can respect that. I don't like it, but I can respect it. So, for now we're just friends. But then, bad things have started happening. She's stopped talking to me. After almost 600 messages between us in two weeks, dropping to nothing really hurts. What's worse, she's already started going out with someone else. This person is someone that she's known for 20 years, and has already tried a relationship with twice before. It happened so fast that a big part of me thinks that she was already intending to be in a relationship with this guy, even when she was with me. And thinking that way kills me. I'm moving back to the Twin Cities in 7 months, and it's true what she said that nobody knows what will happen in 7 months. Part of me thinks that their relationship will fail again, and that I'll have another shot. But another, more experienced part of me says that I'm just deluding myself. This really hurts, SF. I can't deal with this. My heart is breaking. This sort of thing doesn't happen; I'm not someone that people are attracted to, and relationships are a mysterious entity for me. Someone help me, please.
