One of the worst mistakes a person can make is to hold on to a relationship in which the other person just refuses to be present. We have to be willing to let go of relationships that dont make any sense.
If you find yourself in a relationship with someone who you have wanted for so long, but feel as though there is nothing tangible for you to hold on to while you are in it, then there is no point in continuing the relationship.
A relationship is built on a lot of things including trust, a true desire to be in the relationship with one another, honor, and respect. If you don't truly desire to be with the person that you are with, or if the other person in the relationship feels this way, both parties are inherently wasting their time. Be with who you want to be with, never make yourself stay where you don't want to stay, or try to force someone to stay in a spot that they no longer desire to be in.
