I was with my girlfriend for nearly 9 years and out of the blue 4 months ago, she left me. Our relationship was very difficult and I completely understand why she left me. Since then I have changed everything that was difficult in our relationship because I want her back so badly but she says she just wants to be friends. We work together so see each other most days, but she doesn’t act like a friend. I feel like we are still in a relationship apart from being intimate with each other. We hug all the time and spend most of our spare time with each other. I love her and would do anything to get her back, but she says she doesn’t want me in that way
We went out on Saturday night together and danced the night away in a club. Several times it felt like we were going to kiss but didn’t and ended up back at mine in separate beds.
I can’t bear the thought of losing her from my life but I don’t know if I can just be friends with her. I’m so unhappy I just don’t know what to do and would love to hear some opinions and advice on this.
