I've known this boy for 4-5 months now and ever since the beginning we both liked each other. We went on dates, he met my parents, we talked every. single. day. without fail. He took me out to a fancy dinner and a movie on Valentines Day, got me roses and constantly complimented me and kissed me and cuddled me. I told all my friends about him and boasted of course (I was over the moon about him). I genuinely had been thinking 'Maybe he's the one?!' (cringy, naive and dumb I know...).
He's an aspiring actor and was actually a very busy guy and I'm still in school (He just graduated) but we would always hang out and go on dates. My friends and family considered him my boyfriend because we were that close. He hadn't asked me to be his girlfriend yet but I was sure that it would be soon.
Then the other day, he starts texting me saying "I don't know if now is the best time to jump into a relationship, but I love you as a friend and I want you around me constantly because you make me happy and I thoroughly enjoy your company everytime".
Mind you I had caught many many feelings by then.
I end up crying... of course for days. And all my friends say to drop him and never talk again.
But during that conversation he had mentioned that we would probably date in the near future he just know that him being busy would cause problems between us, and I completely understand where he's coming from. But at the same time, I'm just wondering... why can't he see that I would be an easygoing girlfriend. My last ex always saw his ex-girlfriend/friend and we broke up because he moved away!
I'm not a complicated person and I wish he could see that...
But us being friends right now feels almost as comfortable as being 'into each other'.
So I'm not quite sure what to do...
