Yea so I have 2 relationships that I actually care about and would like to make something out of but don't know what to do so I'll explain them: 1) Ex girlfriend - Has been messaging me daily, showing a lot of interest and that she cares when we talk, and has honestly been making me pretty happy when we do talk. She broke up with me on impulse and has been trying to be friends and hang out with me ever since but I haven't started a conversation with her for the past 7 months, to this day (Just polite when she talks to me cause I'm not a dick). 2) Best friend - Use to hang out and blaze every night, always talking to each other and never running out of things to say, and we get along incredibly well. Mid February after I didn't message her for a few days she said she really needed to see me so I went to her house to drink with her. After our friends left she started saying how much she liked me and the she knew I felt the same way about her (which I do) and that we'd make a cute couple. We made out and stuff until she started not feeling well so I picked her up, took her upstairs and kept her company until she felt better and I could put her to sleep, wrote her a note, and went home. She couldn't stop saying how sweet I was for everything and was sayin she wanted to chill asap but we didn't end up seeing each other for 2 weeks even though she chilled with a couple of my friends asking about me. She ended up coming over on my birthday and we ditched my friends to make out and fuck upstairs for a good 3 hours till they all left and just slept through the night. We woke up, I made her coffee, had a great talk, hung out with her that night, we couldn't let each other go and we're just incredibly happy together. About 2 days after that when we we're at a bonfire with a ton of friends I took her aside and asked her what was up with us and she said she wanted to just be friends and not complicate things because she just got out of a relationship and didn't wanna just have a fling or something short-lived because she felt that it would actually work out. We don't talk anywhere near as much as before, honestly it's a little depressing to feel like you've just lost your best friend regardless of the fact that I never actually said that I wanted a relationship or was the first one to say anything, she brought it on me(only reason I'm bringing this up is because every relationship I've had started this way). --- So I don't know what to do, I honestly love my friend but she has her own issues that she said her self that she doesn't want me to sympathize with so there's obviously no point in forcing anything. At the same time I really care about my ex girlfriend but I don't know if it's a good idea. Not to mention my ex's friend who keeps trying to hook up with me and my brothers ex-girlfriend (we started being friends and talking)who said she wanted to go out with me and stopped talking to me after I basically said "uhh no... you dated my brother...so no" in a more considerate way though. Fuck I gotta meet someone new. I've only gone out with one girl that I completely didn't know before (a new receptionist at my gym) and to meet someone like that again seems like it would take some time naturally or I gotta start going to a bunch of places with that as my goal... dammit relationships are frustrationg, I'm gonna pack a bowl and think about somethin else anyone that cares to read though please leave some advice. I just felt like having a few opinions on the matter could influence some better decisions to come out of me. tldr: There are a few girls who want to go out with me but the one girl I actually wanna go out with, who likes me as well, is having a hectic life right now that only seems to be getting worse and doesn't want anything atm so I don't know if I should just give up completely and meet someone new, give me ex a second chance, or try with my friend who doesn't know what she wants.
