Move on from both.
Your boyfriend doesn't make you happy. In fact you'd probably already have dumped him if it weren't for your male friend meeting emotional needs.
You won't be happy with your male friend, or make him happy either, because you don't really want him.
Dump boyfriend, create more distance form male friend, find a guy you want to date who makes you happy. And if you're really a 'friend' to that guy? Help him get laid and find a girl who wants to be his girlfriend.2

A boyfriend should never be responsible for your happiness. That's your job! You have to make yourself happy. And if he is bringing you down, he shouldn't be your boyfriend in the first place. Life is too short to spend it with people who don't add joy to your life. Don't stay with someone just because you have feelings for them.1
