In the past few weeks, I've been asking C* if he wants to give it another shot. I must enjoy being rejected, though, because he keeps saying "no" but I just keep asking.
He and his girlfriend are serious, he says, and he's not going to dump her to give things another try. He doesn't believe that I want to be with him, anyway. He thinks it's just desperation talking. But the thing is, I can't imagine ever being with anyone else.
