I figured out why he “hates” me! He doesn’t, really. He just doesn’t want to waste his energy on me because I have never extended to him individual friendship, outside of our interactions with mutual friends. He is all about respect and by not doing that, I am effectively saying that I don’t want to be his friend, which is disrespectful. In all honesty, I just don’t know how to be friends with that type of personality. We don’t have enough in common. He is so alpha and I don’t know how to be alone with him. We only share awkward silences. We are just not compatible in that way. I am too shy and he is too… him. I dunno.
I don’t know how to break his cold shoulder towards me.
