This is kind of a long story...
OK, I've been friends with a guy for a loooong long time. I mean, he's my best friend, I tell him EVERYTHING. And, predictably, I had a crush on him, and I think I was falling in love with him. Then I met this other guy. And he was INCREDIBLE. I completely adored him... But I still loved my friend. And more than in a friendly way. So I was having some difficulty choosing... I told my friend about it, and he said that he was in love with me, too... But he wasn't sure. So I decided to stay with the other guy, and I asked him out and he said yes and it was all hunky dory.
Then I introduced my guy friend to a girlfriend of mine, and they really hit it off! It was awesome, and they went out and we were all happy. Then he started telling me that she was jealous of me and his relationship, which was ridiculous because I was over him at this point, and quite besotted with my boyfriend. But I got where she was coming from, and I talked to her about it. And it was fine again. Then, out of nowhere, he says he can't handle the long-distance (both relationships are long distance, btw...) and breaks up with her on their one-month anniversary. When I asked him why, he kept dodging the question. I sort of let it go, and I told him I was mad at him but we were still friends.
So today I said I wasn't mad at him anymore because my friend isn't, and he says, "Good, I need to tell you something." I said OK, and he's like, "This ISN'T the reason I broke up with her... but I'm having a really hard time getting over you. I mean, I love her way more, but I still love you more than just a friend."
What do I do?!? I don't know what to think... Any words of advice would be greatly appreciaed... Thank you!
