Advice: Am I leading my friend on?
My friend with benefits told me he has feelings for me and wants to date me. I told him I hadn't thought of him that way and to let me think about it. We continued to be physical for a while, but I came to the decision that I don't want to date. I told him that and we've stopped being physical, but still talk every day. I've told him I'm afraid I'm leading him on and he told me he knows where I stand. He's also told me he still feels the same way and will continue to try. In an ideal world, I wish I could have him as my friend with benefits, but I know that's out of the question. I know I am leading him on, so my question is, what is the right thing to do? I love talking to him all the time and don't want to lose him as my friend. Do I need to give him space though?--What Now?
