This guy has always been there in the background. A couple of months ago I asked him to never contact me again. Then I retracted and suggested we remain friends. I love him, and any quiet moment I have - I think about him.

So the answer is - block/no contact/therapy...

Definitely NC

You have no hope of a relationship with him by remaining friends and not much hope of moving on either

Thank you! I think NC was so much easier 20 years ago. I hate my fingers that send an easy text/message.

Have you told him you want more? After 20 years you could tell him it's all or nothing. And mean it.

But then I'm not sure I want more??

Why did you ask him to stop contacting you?

You say you love him and think about him in quiet moments. Why don't you want more? You can't move on how it is so go NC or tell him you want more if you do

Does he know how you feel?

Why hasn't it ever become more than FWB if you love him?
