Ok so you need to unfriend him and let it go. He’s not your friend.

Don’t waste another thought on him. Focus your energy on those who actually want to be friends with you.

It sounds like he isn’t comfortable being friends with you after he learned you were romantically interested in him.

The fact that you’re on his restricted FB list should tell you something! He doesn’t WANT you in his life and he lacks the balls to delete you (or he doesn’t want to hurt your feelings).

You aren’t “friends”. You have become awkward acquaintances due to unreciprocated feelings.

If you like him romantically, why do you want to go to his wedding and watch him marry someone else? That sounds like self-torture.

Delete him off social media and move on. I know it hurts that he didn’t choose you, but you will feel better if you cease contact with either of them and move on with your life!

I think he is just being respectful of his fiance, you dont know what he has told her about you and it may of caused some insecurities in her/their relationship. 

He probably didnt want to hurt your feelings and went the round about way of cutting you out of his life slowly unfortunately 🙁 It sucks but sometimes its best to just walk away.

ashjagal1212 :  he’s trying to gently push you out of his life without hard feelings.

The more you resist this, or believe you are entitled to anything more from him (a wedding invitation, different privacy settings, the fulfillment of offhand promises he made ages ago) the worse it’ll be for you.

Remember, when someone takes the time to restrict what you can see on FB about them, well, that relationship is about done. It’s kinder than unfriending someone though, especially if you know they’ll immediately know they’ve been unfriended.

I’m sorry but I got some serious “bunny boiler” vibes from this thread. He’s just not into you. I would unfriend him and try to move on from it. If you can’t I would seek the help of a paid professional.

I would restrict you as well, you seem overly involved and emotionally unstable. 

Delete him and move on

I would take the hint of I were you, as awful as it is he isn’t interested in being your friend. Move on there’s plenty more fish in the sea

Wow. This makes me not miss high school at all.  

Go find a hobby or job or volunteer gig or all three.  Move on and let the guy live in peace with his fiancee.

I assume you are quite young?

He sounds like a good guy. He let you know exactly how he feels and didn’t give you false hope. Move on.

ashjagal1212 :  He may view you as a friend but he knows you have/ had feelings for him so out of respect to his Fiance he shouldn’t be spending time alone with you. Have you been friends for a long time? How much would you miss his friendship?
