Hey there, BTE,
We are not obligated to post to every single post on the boards, in fact if all we did was monitor the forums, welcome people and keep the members safe we are doing our job.
However most of the moderators love meeting the members and helping them because we want to sweetie. Please don't assume our posts are not honest and genuine.
You posted "I've been going out with a close friend of mine. We're not "official" but we go out sometimes."
I guess in my mind the word "official" says it all. He may not consider you the love of his life but a good friend and he is not willing to spend all his time with you.
He also does not know how you feel about him and it is hard to guess what is in someones mind. Talk to him and be ready for him to not want an official relationship.
Keep on with your studies.
Gentle Hugs to you

Good Morning BTE,
I am glad to hear you are a bit better but still sad. NightWish gave you great advice. Remember you deserve respect and you are a good person.
I think perhaps you are feeling more depressed right now after the break up with your other b/f. Don't try so hard, just let it happen and it will. Work on your self esteem and remember you are a fun and interesting person. When you accept a date just go with the flow and don't look at the date as your new b/f but just a date.
Keep your standards high and know we are all here to encourage you.
We support you.
