I have a crush on this guy (A) and have had a crush on him for more than a year. However, I decided to 'give up' on this A and got into a relationship with someone else (bad relationship, ended after a month). Towards the end of my bad relationship, I started having feelings for A again.
I'm pretty sure he likes me back because when I got into abovementioned relationship, he became very cold and distant towards me (I got appointed for a leadership role and he didn't congratulate me), this coldness was probably jealousy. Also, my boyfriend suspected that A did have feelings for me, and felt very intimidated by A.
Anyway, I broke up with my boyfriend and my feelings for A started coming back to me. I still feel like he likes me (my intuition is almost always right when it comes to these things). But, he still actively talks to his ex-girlfriend, and he has said he would date her if given the chance to.
He does things like go out of his way to help me, and he treats me nicely, if I need help, he'll be the first one to volunteer help. But now the only problem is that I'm going overseas and I don't know if I should confess to him before leaving, because I'll be gone for 6 months and I don't know if it's fair for him to have to wait that long. And what if he doesn't feel the same way? Would it be awkward when I came back?
What should I do?
Any help/suggestions would be good!
There was one time my group of friends were having a sleepover and my other guy friend B told my brother "Wow you and A have a lot in common, and both of you like *insert my name here*".
B has also asked whether or not I'd go on a date with A if A asked (and to which i stupidly replied "yeah as a friend i'd go", and A's response was "whats new?" and he shrugged)
