So I have a really good friend who I've known for about three years now. I've started having feelings for him about a year ago. I haven't told him about it because I am afraid it would make things complicated or awkward. Recently he's been talking to this girl and he acts "affectionate" towards her and is paying more attention to her than me. I think he might like her and it's killing me inside :(What would you do if you were in my shoes?

If you don't ask, the answer is always "No". Your friendship with him is based on the hopes of you entering a relationship with him and you're not even doing that so what else do you expect besides disappointment? Your options are:
- Keep it a secret and watch him date girl after girl but still remain platonic friends
- Tell him, risk ruining a "friendship" and potentially be his girlfriend
Just take comfort in the fact that in an alternate universe out there, you have confessed your feelings to him and you two are enjoying your time together.
