A few days ago a friend of mine, who I haven't seen since my college graduation, text me to say he missed me. I suggested we get our clique back together and got out for a drink. He said yes but never got back to me.
Backstory: We had a few classes together and became instant friends. As I got to know him better I became more attracted to him. But he was pursuing another girl so I let it go. His relationship with her didn't last long, and on New Years Eve I drunkenly text him and confessed my crush. We talked about it the day after but never visited the topic again. Until, today. He asked me on a date, because he "feels the same way," and he's been thinking about this for "a long time."
Normally I would jump at this sort of opportunity, but I am seeing a guy I met on Tinder. A guy who is very sweet and I really like.
Now I have to decide what I want to. Technically speaking I could date them both at once. I think that would be okay as long as they both knew about each other. Or I could break it off with Tinder guy to see where things go with my friend.
I've never been in a situation like this, and I don't want to mess up my friendship with him by dating him. I also don’t want to break things off with Tinder guy.
Have any of you ever been in a situation like this? What did you do?
