Because nothing has changed.<br />
You tried but could not succeed and the status quo is maintained.
Actually, You are very sensible and practical. Any other reaction would be of no help!
Because the relief of getting it out mixed with the confusuon of not getting the answer you had hoped for has made you numb. You will feel something soon and it might be positive or might be negative, either let yourself feel it in order to fully accept the situation and move on. Sorry you didn't get the answer you wanted but well done on having the courage to say what was in your heart. Hugs xx
Because you are wise and smart + you know the fact that life is about trail and error and we can't force people to love us if they don't it is okay life doesn't stop there...
Confession is good for the sole. I am sorry it did not work so well for you love life though, that sorta sucks.
