Dear Eddie, I have a best friend of the opposite sex, we’ve known each other for years and I fell in love through our mutual experiences and care for each other.
However, this love was not reciprocated, but I was still kept as a confidant and best friend while my friend dated someone else.
Our physical attraction was so strong that we only went out on one date before our sex drives took over.
At that time, they were having a lot of problems, and even though she told me she was attracted to me, she opted to stay with him instead to see if they could “work it out”. So, of course I saw that as her giving me the green light, so I went for it.
But whenever I tried to get close, she’d always pull back.
