I'm in love with my best friend. I started developing feelings for her about 6 years ago. Thing is she is straight. I thought I was straight until her. Now I'm not sure what I am. I confessed my feelings to her about 5 years ago. She has never really said whether she feels the same or not. She has a bf of 10 years. We are very close and I have tried creating space between us on multiple occasions but it never lasts long. We always find ourselves back to being the very best of friends. I get the feeling that she is in love with me too but she is afraid to say it. The situation is very frustrating but I never force her to make a choice. I guess I don't know how to remove myself from the situation. I value her friendship tremendously but I need to protect my heart. I'm tired of feeling less than and constantly rejected by her. I've tried to move on by seeing other people and going out more but my heart sees only her.
