Friends with benefits turns sticky
I am “friends with benefits” with my best friend. I love him dearly, and I asked him if he wanted a relationship earlier this year and he said no, that he doesn’t want anything to change between us. It really hurt my ego. Fast forward I went out of state and actually found a great man who became my boyfriend who actually treats me very nicely. I want to marry him one day. How do I end things with fwb best friend if we never dated to begin with? He also called me his “baby” yesterday when a mutual friend asked us about our “love life.” I am confused. I don’t want to keep secrets. What do I say to my best friend? Hey I found a boyfriend, thanks for the good times? Seems kinda harsh to me, am I wrong?
