Love triangle, what do I do?

Hi, this is my first post on here...

I need help. I've become friends with a girl a year ago. We were, and still are, best friends. I enjoy talking to her, pretty much on a daily basis. But a few months ago, I've realized that I have feelings for her, and she really calms me, knows how to move me. Since we have a very transparent relationship, I told her immediately, and she told me she had feelings for me as well. Here's the thing - she has a boyfriend, and I know that's a big no-no. Our texts can oftentimes be very flirtatious, naturally (again - big no-no). She told me once she is dying to give me a chance, and she stopped having feelings for her boyfriend about a year ago, but still doesn't want to hurt his feelings.

I know everything - "She might do the same to me if we get together," "We're going to hurt his feelings" but I genuinely can't accept the fact of her being with anyone else but him or myself. Sounds childish, I am aware.

We wanted to cut off contact but we couldn't. We tried.

Please don't be too harsh on me.

Thank you in advance.
