I was dating a guy for a few months and as we were slowly fading into no contact with each other, we were discussing about how our religions made it impossible for us to be together. He was the one initiating and being vocal about how we can never be together. Hence, I wanted to let him see I accepted his view and my last message to him was "Friends?" But he did not respond. Why did he not respond, if he had already been saying to me that we are impossible? Will he not want to make the lines clear with me by answering, "Yes, friends." or something to affirm that we are indeed friends and not in a relationship?
