I met him while i was still dating my ex, lets just call him Zach. And i remember thinking how attractive he was but obviously i had a boyfriend who i loved so i let the thing go (about my best friend-who wasnt my best friend at the time but just aa friend). Well me and Zach broke up and i was destroyedd, for like months afterwards i was so hurt and my best friend (lets just call him T) was there the whole time. We started talking every day, about everything and about nothing. I felt myself slowy falling for him but i thought i was using him as a rebound so i didn't indulge it. So one day we met up to watch a movie and he grabbed my thigh and we started kissing and it helped me take my mind off zach. At least, thats what i thought the tingly feeling was. A couple of months down the line and we're staying up until 3 am almost every night on video calls, we coulddnt really meet up much because of corona but we were always texting, snapping, on calls, sending each other tiktoks and memes on instagram. Yesterday (in the name of yolo lol) i told him that i was in love with him. and he said "i dont really know how to respond to that" and i played it off saying "lol i was just messing with you" and he goes "what if i really was in love with you" and we kept talking about it and he described how when we kissed- there was a moment when we stopped and looked at each other for a good minute, he said that felt way too real for him. I recognized the tingly feeling he was talking about. I know he's in love with me, i've always suspected it by the way he looks at me, the way he talks to me sometimes. But theres another girl he likes, and i dont know what to do. A part of me wants to leave the whole thing to play out and when it fails i'll have him all to myself but i don't want her to hurt him. I really love him.
