Sunday Confessional: I Am Living a Lie in My Own Home

I dated my ex boyfriend for about two years. When I was first getting to know him, I met one of his good friends and had an instant connection with him. From that point on, we would joke around about running away together and how we are having a secret love affair, etc. Except I soon realized I wasn't kidding anymore, and neither was he. So I made plans to break up with my boyfriend so we could be together. Before I had the chance, my boyfriend's friend starting dating someone completely out of the blue. His friends told me it was because he didn't think I was ever going to break up with my boyfriend, and he needed to distract himself and move on with his life.

Fast forward a year.

I have broken up with that boyfriend. My crush's girlfriend is now my ROOMMATE and I am still in love with him. We have hooked up... twice. He still hasn't broken up with her and I am overwhelmed with guilt, jealousy, and frustration. I am trying to move on, but I'm not sure I will ever be able to, all the while lying to my roommate about sleeping with her boyfriend. My life is just a mess.
