This guy I used to hook up with is now my neighbor.
About a year ago, I met this guy from class. He was cute, charming, and I was definitely attracted to him. I just got out of a long-term relationship, so I felt ready to get out there.
We hung out casually, and finally went out. On that night, we hooked up. I felt good because it was the first time I got back out there after my breakup. We hung out a few times after that, but stopped talking after a while.
Close to a year later, I see that he’s my neighbor. He instantly texts me and after talking for a bit, he asks to come over. I knew exactly what he wanted, -and I wanted the same thing. We hooked up again. It was strange this time around – meaning little chemistry. I think it was mainly because we didn’t talk and just went straight to it.
It’s been two months since we last hooked up, but I try to avoid him to not have any awkward run-ins, but when I do see him, neither of us say a word. I don’t like the awkwardness. Do I just deal with it? Does he feel weird too? Should I just leave it alone?

I would just leave it alone and move on. If he was interested in continuing the relationship even on a friendly level you would have been contacted.
Maybe you could just address the elephant in the room? Ask him directly what he’s hoping for, whether that be never speaking to you again, fwb, or whatever else. For all you know, he could be awkwardly avoiding you because he doesn’t know how to bring it up either, and I think talking it out could give you two peace of mind. Or, you, at the very least.
