Right, I have this friend. We've known each other a few years but I'd never spent any time one-on-one with him until the last month. He started talking to me on facebook about a month ago, and he's out of work now and is bored and I've had a lot of spare time (being single and not really sure how to spend my time yet) and so I've been spending a lot of time talking to him or with him. We've become really good friends. So what's the problem eh?
So! It's come to my attention that he almost certainly has "romantic" feelings towards me. He's not said anything to me outright, but the way he talks to me, the way he looks at me, it's become obvious and I'm worried that his feelings are deepening.
He's been single for a long time and I know he really wants a girlfriend and I suppose I'm worried that maybe I'm leading him on?
I've tried to make sure I'm not flirting with him and that I make it clear that he's just a friend, but as he's not ACTUALLY said anything, I feel that saying "I dont fancy you" would be a bit harsh?
I dont know really, I suppose I'm wondering if it's FAIR to pursue a friendship with someone I'm fairly certain has romantic feeling for me, knowing how hard it is to be on that side of it, or do you think I should just stop worrying and think he's a big boy and if it gets too much for him then that's his problem??
