Hey guys. So, after my sexual assault and my possible abusive relationship, I haven't had romantic feelings for anybody. My relationship was definitely borderline abusive emotionally, and never physically, but it was complicated. Anyway, this was a couple of years ago. I recently had feelings for this guy. I wouldn't say I loved him, but I had really strong feelings for him, and it was the first time since the relationship that I have been interested in somebody. We became really close friends and my feelings for him grew. I saw him last week, and when we went to say goodbye I was crying (it was a sad to leave, and it had nothing to do with him) and he held my head in his hands really close to his face and wiped my tears away. I pulled away because I know he has a girlfriend, and I'm not that girl. I honestly still think there was something there, but he says he doesn't like me in that way. The big deal was that usually when people hold my head it scares me, because of what happened, but this felt different. If anyone has had similar experiences please comment, and I am a teenager but it sucks nonetheless.
