I slept with a close friend it was a drunk one night stand that was initially just supposed to be us meeting up at the bar to talk about our day. When I woke up next to him the next day realizing what had happened I snuck out and went home.And then later after trying to avoid him he texted me that he wanted to meet up so we did it was awkward because he would try to bring up what happened the night before and I would just change the subject and eventually ended up leaving abruptly I kept getting Vibes that he believes that it was more than a one-night stand how do I break it to him that I’m not interested in him that way and that I still want to be friends with him and that it was only a one-night stand and a mistake I don’t want to lose him as a friend what should I do? I’ve been friends with this guy since like Middle School I don’t want to lose his friendship and I can’t understand or figure out why us hooking up means so much to him when it’s clear that we’re only friends for a reason and that were meant to be friends. My question is should I completely cut him off and ghost him or should i confront him about his feelings and to tell him to ignore what he feels about me so we can go back to being friends ?-which what i want
