I will be honest, I did have feelings for the friend but I lost these feelings and fell in love with someone else. But whenever he tried telling me ‘sweet’ things I would feel something and he would say things like, “I don’t need any other girl but you” and I felt kind of touched but very uncomfortable.
I had to talk about this to my old partner, so I did and as expected, he wasn’t happy. But I felt like it was the right thing to do and I felt stuck. Then later on I told the friend that I wasn’t interested in him and that he had to respect my decision and the relationship I was in, he was of course very hurt by it and tried to do whatever he could to leave and fall for him but I had to get it done.
(And plus, I didn’t want to be in some polymarous relationship or whatever lmao) but at the end it got sorted and never spoke to him ever since that time.
Have you you ever been caught in that kind of situation? and do you think it’s worse than friendzones?

There is something a little predatory about a friend who declares their interest for you while you are in a relationship. I mean, they know that you are in a relationship so why do they even bother? They are hardly respecting your relationship and if they don't respect that then they don't respect you too much either.1
