Too intense dating
I’ve been realizing lately that we kind of act like a couple. Either he’s “friend material” or he’s “boyfriend material.” It can only be one of the two, as the approach to each is completely different.
A few years ago he told me he used to have feelings for me but we never really talked about it, because I friendzoned him before I knew. Before you can even answer the question of what to do about this guy and how your friendship might change when he’s dating someone, I think you need to decide on what you want him to be in your life.
However, if you keep things completely platonic and that’s obvious to all, it shouldn’t be an issue.
From last minute international travel to bizarre places to writing award winning books, he’s here to bring his wisdom to all your problems.
In terms of how to act when he is dating someone else, that’s largely up to him and his potential girlfriend.
If she sees you as a threat, it could become a big problem.
In the end, I felt the friendship was more important than the girlfriend and I was very much right in my choice.
Decide whether you really want to move things to another level with this guy, and if not, find yourself someone else to focus those feelings on.
