I started seeing my best friend as more than a friend, having left my previous partner who was not good for my mental health, it was the happiest I have been in years, genuinely felt like nothing could stop me, suddenly she has put the breaks on the whole thing, something I can understand as she's not in a right place mentally to proceed and I just wanted to know how can I pick myself back up and get back to being happy again because I felt like I have taken one step forward and ten back at this point

Hiya and :welcome: to the forum. I think you need to just cool down a little but its so hard when you have feelings for another person. I think you answered your own question - they aren't ready for a relationship right now.

Do you think you will find someone else in time? I just wondered. Sorry I can't be more help.

Take care

Calypso

Hi Calypso, see I don't know what's going on, she's a way on a holiday and it was just before she left it occurred she says she doesn't know what she wants and she says she has the fear, I don't know if I will ever find anyone quite like her she was my best friend and I have never felt so strongly about someone I am totally destroyed

Hi,
I'm so sorry for you, the pain will get easier.
Hope you have family and friends that can support you.
You will hopefully find that happiness again.
