Most Helpful Girl
No fair hanging on to one just in case the other doesn't work out. It will p*ss you off to no end when a guy does that to you. (Notice, I did NOT say IF!)
Sounds like you are more into your ex than the long-time friend you have a mutual interest in.
Before you decide whether ot go see the 'friend' or not (would this really be an issue of he were just a friend?), ask yourself honestly if you really want a relationship with him or with your ex. Put yourself in either of their shoes when you communicate your decision to the one you will be saying goodbye to.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
