How do I tell my friend who likes me a lot that I am dating someone w/o hurting her feelings and possibly losing her?
I feel like I am stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Right now I a dating a great girl. We met earlier in the year but she left town for a few months. Now she's back and we started dating and getting serious.
I met a really cool person over the summer. We've become friends but we hooked up a couple of times. I told her at the end of the summer/beginning of fall that I just want to be friends and that I am not looking for anything then. This was true for the person I am dating now wasn't back yet and I really wasn't trying to commit then. I knew then that I would not be able to satisfy her emotionally.
Since then, we see each other like once or twice a month. We never have relationship chats though when we hang out. Last weekend we went out to dinner and I could tell she really wanted to come home with me and I walked her to the train for us to part ways for the night.
I don't want to lose her as a friend but I need a sly way that won't hurt her feelings?
