I have this friend. We've been friends for 11 years.  He's stuck by be though everything regardless if I was in the wrong or not.

He's smart. Has himself together. Is a fantastic dad. An awesome friend. Would do anything for me in a heartbeat. He always finds the wrong girls and gets taken advantage of.  When he does have a girlfriend, I get jealous.I've always been jealous of his girlfriends..even when I had a boyfriend I was jealous of his girlfriends.

He tried stopping me from marrying the wrong guy..to which I didn't listen and have now been separated for 6 months.

To me this sounds like love? A crush? A fantasy? sigggghhhh. I've had so many people in the years that we've been friends constantly ask if we've ever dated.. we haven't... kissed?... we haven't...I've been told by countless people.."You should be with him".."You can tell he loves you". But I've always shrugged it off. We're friends!!

I wish there was an answer. Anyone ever been through this? Did it work? Was it awful? Was it awesome? sigggghhhh

While reading your post it made me think.  Years ago i had a friend that i fell for.  In the end things didn't work out.  It was a long distance relationship and too many other things going on.  I don't talk to him anymore but i do still think of him.  He was a good person.  I have another friend that i really care about.  We've been friends almost 10 years now.  He's sweet, funny, and an understanding person.  In the past i had thought about the possibility of being with him but it's never happened.  I'm married right now anyway but even if i wasn't i wouldn't get with him for the fear that we would break up and not talk to each other anymore.  Not saying that things won't work out for you two.  It could very well work out wonderfully!  It's totally up to you if you want to give it a shot.  You two could be the happiest couple ever!  I just want to say i wish you two all the best!
