Most Helpful Girl
You'll move on when your heart is ready. Simple as that.
I'm in a similar situation. Best male friend, was friends for year, got super close, for a year at some point he began flirting, we were friends with benefits for a year, had some rocky patches but still close as 2 can be. I was coming out of a long relationship, as long as I've known him he says he didn't want a relationship he liked how things were. Then bam he's dating someone.
I never told him my feelings, assumed he knew. I never expected a relationship but doesn't hurt any less. I said friendship first so even though my heart is still breaking I never pushed him away. However at this point I say if he wants me in his life he'll make the effort to keep me there. He contacts me first 95% of the time.
Some think I need to let him go, but I can't. I've always wanted his friendship and he says he wants mine. He contact me pretty much every day. Maybe I'm hurting more by keeping him in my life but I need him and believe he needs me. My friendship sounds like it was much longer and maybe that makes it harder. I'm trying to move on but no one makes me feel the way he does. Hopefully one day someone will sweep me off my feet and I'll move on but I still want him I'm my life.
good luck my friend. I wish us both luck!
