this is a simplified version of what happened but any input I'd be grateful for. I met this guy online and we chatted for about a month, then started hanging out on weekends watching movies, dinner, and yes playing around, for about 4 weeks. it was going great and we both expressed to each other how much we liked each other and that it felt good. Then he tells me he's getting back with his ex (I just found out was only broken up with him for a month before we met). So we agreed to be friends at the time and have talked to each other every night, all night, we're literally best friends and he's stated that. We've hung out since, just us, and gone to movies and even cuddled one night, but I feel like I'm just the "other guy" in case the ex thing doesn't pan out the way he plans. It sucks cause I haven't liked someone like this in probably 5 years. I told him last weekend that I had developed feelings for him and he didn't know what to say other than sorry if I got hurt....then this week he starts telling me that he's already questioning his renewed relationship, and is scared his x gonna leave him again, and how nothing has changed from before. did I mention that it's been 3 weeks and he's already moved in with him? Should I stick around and see what happens? I don't wanna be the rebound guy, even though I feel like I've already played that role once. Should I make a move? an ultimatum? I value this guy's friendship, we're really good friends right now, and there is a connection between us as he's admitted. I just don't like being strung along.
