    This question has been bothering me for quite some time. Someone once told me that they were in love with me but didn't want to be with me. How is that possible?? If you love someone and are attracted to them, why wouldn't you want to be with them? I mean I guess if they were abusing you physically or mentally, but that was not the case. So I am just wondering what everyone thinks and if anyone has been in a similar situation.

    Hi Shorty:)

    I'm a bit confused about your question(s).

    If "Someone once told me that they were in love with me but didn't want to be with me.How is that possible?? "

    A very reasonable answer might be that this "Someone" feels that their love for you is not reciprocated back and is a one-way feeling?

    I think you need to provide us with a bit more information and detail to be able to comment knowing that we are on the right track.
