Hello Forum People/Lurkers/Helpers what have you may :) HELP!
I've known this ISTP male for just over a year now.
In the beginning of our platonic relationship, attraction was quite intense, as we were in a project where we had to spend quite a bit of time together.
Say about, 3 months later I confessed to him I had feelings for him face to face. Being an introvert, I gave him space to think about it.
He texted me a week later saying that he had feelings for me too - however, it didn't feel right to him because of wrong timing, and of my close relationship with his older over protective sister and because of his family drama involving his older sister and younger brother: (with the older protective sister attacking her former friend (aged 24) whom she found out was creeping around with her underage brother (aged 16).)
Needless to say, I accepted this as a rejection, from ISTP, disconnected from him almost completely, until this year, where we connected again quite recently,
things seem like old times, but I'm just sick and tired of trying to read whether he has feelings for me or not.
I either need to let him go i.e. ignore him forget him. (Hard because I'm so close with his elder sister)
or I need to confront him about his feelings (hard because i hate confrontation at the best of times, i'd imagine he wouldn't be too comfortable about it too?)
ISTPs? What would be the best route of action?
