So, long story short I think that my boyfriend's best friend has a crush on me. He and his girlfriend of two years broke up about a couple of months or so ago and I've kind of taken him under my wing to try and help him get over her. He's a really sweet guy who for lack of any other reason simply has no "game". He's cute, really funny and possibly one of the most genuinely intelligent guys I've met in a really long time (that's why he and my boyfriend get along so well), but he lacks the confidence to get back in there and meet some new girls. In any case, we've been spending a LOT of time together lately because of various circumstances (he parks his car at our house bc it's close to campus, he comes over everyday either to hang out with me or my roommate, I also see him at my boyfriend's house just about every day, and we now work together) and we no doubt get along better than most anyone else I know here. A couple of weeks ago I introduced him to a girl I know thinking that they might hit it off. They did and she really liked him (I told him this), but he waited WAY too long to make any kind of move and basically friend zoned himself. When he finally did try to kiss her she'd already made up her mind to be friends (blah). Well the reason I say I think he likes me is because I'm usually a pretty good assesor of such things and the other night we went to a bonfire together (my boyfriend had to work so we just went w/o him) and I got serious flirtation vibes from him all night long. The next day I got an honesty box message saying something that really only my boyfriend or he could've written (just sounds like something only they would say, because they use similar "language"), then when I responded the anonomous person wrote "After spending a lot of time together, I'm just coming to terms that I have a serious crush on you." I thought there was a slight chance it could have been my boyfriend, but he doesn't ever go on Facebook and doesn't even have a computer at home, plus, I checked and he doesn't have the honesty box application. When I asked him if he'd written anything to me, he said he didn't know what Honesty Box was. The only person I can think that I've been spending a lot of time with is his friend, and that message is like . I sent him a reply saying simply "If you know me well enough to have developed a crush on me, you must know that I have a boyfriend." Now I'm not sure what to do, should I back off and stop hanging out with him as much? It would be hard to do considering that we see each other so much and that I honestly do enjoy spending time with him. I do admit that I'm a natural flirt (my boyfriend recognises this and is thank god accepting of that fact), but I don't want to give him the wrong idea about our friendship. Honestly, if I met him at some other time in some other circumstances, I might have had interest in him too, but the case is he's my boyfriend's friend and it just won't/can't happen. BLAH. This was mainly a big rant but I'd like your input on it... have any of you experienced similar situations? How'd you handle it?
