Backstory: me and my one friend were pretty close emotionally and we also were physically close (platonically). It was normal for us to randomly push each other or hug or poke at each other in a normal friendly way. I had told him I was gay at the beginning of the school year (probably october) and he said he was fine with it...and our physical stuff continued. I had confessed to him, in december, that I had been infatuated with him as well...but I was pretty much over it and I apologized for it, which he was also fine with. The situation: He pulled away from me and our mutual friends and he just stopped hanging out with the same crowd as he did before and I started to miss him. Towards the end of the school year (may) we were together again and I just so happy to see him, I went probably abit overboard with the physical hugging and such but I thought nothing of it. He was my best friend and i missed him. Three days into finals week I received an email that said "i dont want to be friends anymore, only friendly acquaintances" and "as a catholic I am against the lifestyle you live, you 'dating' men, the comments you make about men, etc. Sorry that I ddin't tell you this months ago" and all this other stuff. I am catholic too so i felt taking a relgious stance on it was silly b/c we are on the same field...but that's just me My main problem is that: I dont know what to do. My caring side says to forgive him and hopefully we'll become friends again. My evil side says to pray that he is pained and all this bad stuff happens to him, equal to the pain he caused me. Does anyone that's been in a similar situation have advice for me? He was my best friend and now I just don't know what to think/do about what he said to me.
