My best guy friend told me that he likes me like a lot, and I am confused. We have been friends for more than a year. I am single and I don t want to be in relationship, and I never had one before.
I have promised my mom to not have one until I graduate (we are both 19). I don’t think I am mature enough for a relationship, but deep down, I feel I also like him, as most of the time I can’t stop thinking about him.
We are really close, but I ended up telling him that I don t want to be in a relationship with anyone, and the friendship we have is more important than that. This was three months ago. We talk on and off now, because he always ends up telling me that he wants me and can’t get me out of his head, and my other girl best friend (who is also friends with him) keeps telling me how much he wants me and is really heartbroken.
Both of us have a very messed up past. He thinks love can heal, and I am afraid of love, as it’s only gonna break things in the end.
What should I do ? I feel like I am losing him, he looks so sad, it breaks my heart seeing him like this. My friend told me that he really tried not to tell me that he is falling for me, because he knew I wouldn’t say yes, but now I don’t want to lose him. He is a good person, and I am scared that if I really fall in love with him, then I wouldn’t be able to live if I didn’t get him. And looking at everything, I don’t see it happening because of our families.
