Dear Steve and Shirley,
I have been best friends with someone for 18 years. This relationship was strictly platonic for this period until I finally gave in year 19 to be become more than just friends. After 2 of years of this I realized that there would be no commitment on his part so I went ahead and explained to him that I could not continue with this relationship and I need some kind of commitment. Even though he claims that he has been with no one else I thought that after all these years of being friends we would have been at least been engaged by this time. Since I broke off the intimate relationship, he keeps calling me and wants me to be intimate with him to which I promptly hang up and ignore him. I guess he did not get it or understand what I said to him. The issue is this, should I just give up on being friends with this man who has been my best friend for so long or try to reason with him to get him to understand me? P.S. I am a woman.
