My crush is also one of my close friends since last September. I told him I liked him in January, I presume, and he asked me out on a date. The date went horribly wrong, and he did apologize to me afterwards, meanwhile saying he “kinda likes” me. After him unknowingly (I hope) toying with my feelings for some time, I reminded him that I loved him. He then told me how he liked me as a friend, and stuff like that. We used to see each other every day, but now we won’t because he got a new job. I do try to text him, and sometimes the conversations are okay and sometimes they aren’t. I was also told that he said he had a crush on me when telling some of his friends who he liked, but after our date and everything else, I’m not sure what to do.
