I have been seeing a guy as a friends with benefits arrangement for 7 months. Tried to keep it cool but finally the feelings train has come into the station. We have gone about this all wrong in the sense that for the 7 months I have always stayed the night when we see each other. He cooks me breakfast. We go on dates. We spend time with each others families. Etc. I was getting the impression that he felt the same way but two nights ago he made it clear that he could never see any future with me because of my family situation (I'm a single mum and he has known my sons dad for many years). In other words he is saying he doesn't feel bad sleeping with me but wouldn't feel right being a step dad to his ex friends child.
I am so upset. The one thing I can't change is who my son is. Nor would I want to but I can't get this guy out of my head!
Any suggestions for moving on when your feelings are super strong?

Use your brain/logic more. You are both interested in different things. He is interested in hooking up with you, while you want something more.
It cannot work. He already told you he doesn't see a future with you. You should break your friends with benefits situation and you should focus on other things in your life.0
