I've been best friends with this guy for about seven years, and we've both had significant others for about four of those years.
The thing is, whenever we hang out alone we're just naturally flirty. And as we've grown up together, it's getting complicated! His girlfriend is always away out of state at school and my boyfriend works long hours, so we're always hanging out together. When we do, he will do things like hug me, tickle me, play with my hair, play with my hands, etc.
I am almost 100 percent sure he would never actually try to do anything sexual, but all of this playful flirting has caused me to have a crush on him. Also, whenever I talk about my boyfriend he usually changes the subject, and he never wants to hang out with us as a group even though we used to. Judging by his actions I'm pretty sure he has developed a crush on me too. I know he's committed to his girlfriend because he has talked about their future/marriage, but he also talks about their fights a lot, and that secretly makes me happy! I feel so guilty. I'm not going to just cut off my best friend and be sad, but this crush is getting ridiculous. Sometimes I want to be with him more than my own boyfriend, even though my boy is a great guy. Any thoughts on my situation?
