I’m about to do something my conscience doesn’t agree with but it feels like the right decision to make. I have a boyfriend. We’ve been dating for the past 6 months. I love him.
We were good friends before we started dating. I’m someone who doesn’t trust easily and I like to assess a guy for a while before dating him. I assessed his intentions and I realised he didn’t just want to have sex with me and leave. He loved me just as I loved him.
Three months ago I met this guy. At first I just saw him as a friend, but as I got to know him I started noticing the good qualities he possessed. He’s very attractive, very intelligent and wellspoken. My conversations with him were so immersive. The little time I spent with him always left a profound impression on me. Soon I noticed I had started developing feelings for him. I was still in love with my boyfriend nevertheless.
One day the new guy asked me if I had a boyfriend. I told him I did. The next day he called me and said that he didn’t want to interfere with my relationship. He said he had feelings for me and he couldn’t remain friends with me when he knows I have a boyfriend. I told him that I had feelings for him as well and that we could still remain friends but he refused and suggested that we stopped talking. He hasn’t called or texted me since that day.
This situation has left me in an emotional turmoil. This new guy represents everything I want in a guy and as much as I don’t want to admit it, he possesses better qualities than my boyfriend. I can’t imagine a life where I can’t talk to him anymore. I really like him. His decision has left me in a dicey position. It’s unfair to leave my boyfriend who has always been nice to me for someone else, but the new guy doesn’t want to have anything to do with me again as long as I’m in a relationship.
Please I need advice. I don’t want to make the wrong decision.
