I think Avunde said the right thing with talking to him about it. Modern FWB relationships can come and go... its the whole no-strings-attached safety net. However, when you do find someone that you've realized you have feelings for... it is also time to step back and assess yourself. How self-confident are you? How ready are you to have a more serious relationship (financially, but also in context with everything else going on in your life, family, friends, etc...). Are you ready to have the deeper commitment and extensive communications about thoughts, goals, feelings, etc... with THIS guy? Maybe you should take your time, go slow and give yourself both time and room to back off if you realize he ISNT the right one for you, too---consider that.<br />
You do need to spend time talking with him about the same things/questions you asked in your initial post. Work to explore your feelings internally, but also what his feelings are (and their depth/sincerity), too. Explore things ob<x>jectively. Talk with others, both in and outside of your relationship with him to see what their 'take' on him is.
GOOD for you!!
tell him then leave
It sounds as if you both lied to yourselves in the beginning. The good news is that you seem to be happy together. Might even bet that he feels about the same as you do. You can probably drop the FWB thing and be just fine as a real couple.
I think it's okay to say you are a pair and let others figure out that FWB is not a good idea.
Oh, and it is good to be happy, isn't it.
Fair enough, but it does not sound that way.
i think you like each other, stay together, go for it, i wish this would happen between me and her, best not get the old hopes up
I would tell him and see where it goes from there. At least you will be being honest. Don't forget you are human. If he gets pissed about it he is an idiot. Let the chips fall where they may.
