Below is the excerpt from a write-up regarding relationship :
'Do not send card to one who's been backing off unless you are NOT STILL HUNG UP on this guy. Are you? Be honest with yourself...'
1) What is the meaning of 'NOT STILL HUNG UP on this guy'?
2) For the sentence ''Be honest with yourself...'', shall I rewrite to 'Be honest to yourself...'' to make it grammatically correct?
Tks / ju
I don't understand the first part of the sentence, but if you are "still hung up on someone" it means you still have romantic feelings for the person even though the relationship is over. (Or, you might have never had a relationship, but liked this person for a long time.)
Just as I should be honest with you, a person should be honest with him- or herself. The correct preposition is "with" not "to."
