Most Helpful Guy
"I don't understand why if I'm JUST his friend, why he lied about how long he's been with this girl?" -
He likely just didn't know how to tell you because he knew it would hurt your feelings and obviously he cares for you. I imagine he kept putting it off until he couldn't anymore or you found out-it was unclear from your post if he told you or you figured it out or what but this doesn't matter.
" It shouldn't matter, if I'm just your friend." -
It would if that friend had feelings for you as you do him. Again, he didn't want to hurt you. This was inevitable though. I imagine he is as young as you and he simply didn't know how or when to tell you. He was torn; on the one hand he has his girlfriend, on the other he has his best friend. I don't envy this guy.
"It's just so heartbreaking to me." - Of course it is. Sounds like you might even love him.
" Again, if we're just friends, why is it such a big deal?" -
With the 5:30am texting, he cares about you and it's a habit. Humans are creatures of habit.
