My friend was supposed to get married this year. His gf cheated; they called off wedding. He and I have been close platonic friends for years but have recently made deeper emotional connection. We almost hooked up recently logistically, due to distance, it didn’t happen but we have admitted romantic feelings are there. (There was NOTHING before wedding. EVER.) He says he definitely wants to get together but is in bad place emotionally right now. Doesn’t want me to see this side of him. Says I mean a lot to him. . . This guy is not a jerk and has never been a jerk. I know he’s depressed. I want to wait for him because he’s an honest, sincere person who is going through a rough patch. I’m trying to give him space but I’m not sure what to do. If he were just any other guy, I’d be out. I have a deep connection with him and want to wait for him. What do I do? How do I give him space but how do I respect myself in the process? I wouldn’t be writing this if he didn’t mean so much to me. Please provide honest but constructive advice. Thanx.
