He told me he loved me.

What do you do when your friend tells you they love you?

What do you do when you’re living with someone, you’re in love someone yet when that other person tells you they love you, you get butterflies?

Does this mean you don’t love the person who you’re with or is it just natural to get that buzz when someone you once liked tells you they love you?

Let me rewind and explain things a little more, that way you understand the full situation and are able to answer those questions better.

I live with my partner. We have been together just under 2 years, we have been living together for just under 2 months now, if any of you have read my other stuff then you know a little about him already, as my other stuff detailed, we were engaged. Well that got called off a few weeks back due to me finding out about a few things, but that’s a whole other discussion which I will go into later. Anyway lately me and him have been having a lot of problems, I’m finding it hard to forgive him for the lies and he’s getting more and more frustrated with me due to my ‘offness’ with him due to the fact I can’t forgive him. Since that night when I called off the wedding and we split up for a few days I am finding it more and more difficult to remember why we are together in the first place. I called things off cause I can’t be with someone who lies to me; again if you have read my other stuff you know why that is important to me. He’s lied to me a few times now and each time I’ve forgiven him thinking things would change but they never do, and now I’m left here wondering if I made the right choice when I packed up all my stuff and moved 7 hours away to be with him when he started Uni.

Now my friend. I’m honestly not sure what to make of him. I met him through one of my brothers’ friends during one of my many nights out with my family to our local quiz for their quiz night. At first I didn’t really speak to him much I mean he knew my brother it would just be kind of weird. Anyway one night whilst we were there we got talking and we exchanged numbers. For a few days after that we were constantly texting and constantly talking and I started looking forward to quiz night as I knew he would be there, yet when quiz night came he went back to not talking to me whilst we were there, instead he texted me a few times! This really bugged me and I honestly didn’t get it especially when after we’d all leave he’d text me! This would go on for about 5/6 months texting each other loads yet hardly talking to each other at quiz night expect to say hello and goodbye, however we did always hug when we were saying bye. When I stopped going to quiz night due to financial reasons we would continue to text each other. However sometimes we could go weeks without texting and then I would get a random text saying he liked me or that I was his perfect girl! I mean what the fuck right!?! Total mind fuck but hey! Anyway!! Nothing between me and him ever went anywhere even though he made it clear he wanted it to, I mean at the time although I did like him I was with someone and I really loved them. I wasn’t willing to give up some one I thought was my soul mate just for someone I liked. But now I’ve moved away and everything this friend has gone that extra step and has now told me he loves me and has done for awhile he just didn’t want to say anything because he thought he had no chance with me.

If that’s true, why would he say it now? I mean, he knows me and my partner are having problems, so is that why he’s decided to tell me now? I honestly don’t know what to make of it all? Am I only thinking about it this much because me and my partner are having issues or is there genuinely something there between me and my friend? I honestly don’t know what to think and seeing as I am so far away from all my friends and family whilst I’m living here I am going to use, you guys as my agony aunts. Any advice you can give me would be great, hell even if it’s just your opinion on what is going I would appreciate every little help any of you can provide!!
