Advice about a guy?
I had a guy friend who I very much fell in love with. We are opposites. He has always been very kind and protective of me, and at first he kept telling me that I didn't need to be with him, that I would get hurt. This was confusing because he also told my sister that he was in love with me. He shut me out for quite some time and now he's back, I got back together with my ex and he has his first steady girlfriend in five years. I don't think I can stay with my boyfriend. The truth is that I am still in love with my friend. When I got back together with my ex, the guy I love said "Now do you see why I use the methods I do?". I do, and I don't. I'm so confused about whether or not he did love me, or if he just hurt me so I'd want to move on. There is no moving on and I have not let this control my life, since I can not have him. Will someone please tell me what has happened? We are friends again, but not as close as we used to be.
