I almost fell completely off of the track. I have a long time male friend. We are close friends. He has a long-time gf. He has often told me, as of late that their relationship is virtually non-existent, however neither one of them has actually been strong enough to make the break. That having been said, I started to react, emotionally. In other words, I was beginning to fall for him. Yesterday, after he watched tv for an hour at his gf’s, he stopped by. He said that he did not want to ruin our friendship, by giving me a kiss. In retrospect, it probably was the right thing to say, and the right way to behave. They have not officially broken up. The fact that he is still going to her apt. tells me that he still must feel something for her, in which case, we can only be friends, at this point and time. I do not want to get hurt.
