A long time coming?
Over the years I've developed feelings for one of my very good friends girlfriends. Drunkenly she's come on to me and tried to initiate things also confessing feelings but I've shut it down. Recently she's directly told me and I've long suspected that their relationship is done but my buddy refuses to let go. I'm not the type of person to do something like that to a friend but the temptation is there. At this point though her parents love me to the point that I'm currently house sitting while they travel and the girl in question literally told me she's afraid of my buddy because he won't let her go and refuses to acknowledge the breaking up. They live together in her lake cabin and her parents (living in an adjacent cabin) have made it clear they don't want him around but he still more out less lives there. At the very least I want to get my buddy to move on, he doesn't realize it but he's making them both miserable, but also still get with her? I feel it's one or the other and I'm not sure how to reconcile that.
