I feel that feeling this way is childish, but I have a guy friend was fairly close to whose life took a wrong turn and he's trying to fix it now. That's not the issue, the issue is having next to no time to just hang out with him, and it's been nearly a year. I have thought for about nine months that the friendship is dead, but I can't talk to him about that or how I feel, because there's no time, though it's left me in limbo.

I guess I have to choose whether to stay or leave, and I resent being put in that position, is it so bad to enjoy companionship?
I feel like I wanted the same as everyone else, but will never have it. Did I fail somehow, to lose the one I cared for?

I have guy friends. Sometimes I go a few months without seeing them, then we get together. If you want to hang out with him, why not email him and ask?

If you truly value this guy's friendship, then make every possible effort to talk to him about the way you're feeling before you write him off entirely. I agree that writing to him might be a good idea especially if you're having trouble getting and/or keeping his undivided attention for whatever reason.

Try not to set any expectations about his reaction though so that you don't set yourself up for any disappointment unnecessarily. Hopefully he will realize that friendships do need some nurturing from time to time. Maybe he simply needs a little reminder of that fact!

I was waiting for a time where I could share my feelings in a respectful manner and have been thinking for a while that I could wait and the time never come, which would be time couldn't get back.

A lot of men in the world, but honestly, some days have had enough.

Thanks for advice, will keep it in mind : )

Divorce, losing and trying to get another job, selling house and moving, he doesn't have much time.
