Imagine: you're seeing someone casually (not serious but not just sex either) and after some months you develop feelingd. You know that person is awesome but you don't really want a relationship and you know you wouldn't be a very good match, even if it's so much fun to hang out with that person.
The thing is if you don't really want to change things, but you just have a certain need to feel validated at an emotional level... But asking could make it all awkward... or not?
does it make sense?
So, what do you do?
- Stop seeing the personVote A
- Keep on seeing the person and never mention that you're having feelingsVote B
- Say what you feel to see if they feel the same (seeking validation, not a relationship)Vote C
- Start getting to know and go on dates with other people to keep your mind entertainedVote D

It depends. If you can control those feelings you have and keep them in check, and you derive value from the friendship, then you can remain friends.
If you can't control your feelings, then you need to end your relationship with that person completely - a complete and permanent break.
It's really that simple, which is not the same as EASY.1

Feelings happen, and it's not a bad thing. I'm of the opinion that you should always be open about your feelings, because it's a healthier state of being. Nothing has to change by sharing them. They might, but that's of no real consequence.1
