Best friend does not show in­ter­est in be­ing sex­u­ally in­ti­mate with woman

Rome News-Tribune - - NEWS - GARFIELD PEANUTS

Dear Abby: I have been best friends with “Mickey” for about five years. We spend ev­ery day to­gether and go out to din­ner/movies/events, etc. He sleeps over at my house, and I cook for him al­most ev­ery night.

When our friend­ship started we were in­ti­mate a cou­ple of times but have been strictly pla­tonic ever since. The prob­lem is, I’m in love with him. He knows how I feel, and although he claims he doesn’t love me, he con­tin­ues to spend ev­ery wak­ing mo­ment with me and is al­ways try­ing to bet­ter me. We do pretty much ev­ery­thing a cou­ple would do, mi­nus the phys­i­cal con­tact. Ev­ery­body as­sumes we’re a cou­ple.

I think I should also men­tion that Mickey is even started work­ing out at the gym, think­ing maybe my re­cent weight gain was the prob­lem.

I know he “loves” me, but he isn’t at­tracted to me. I’m afraid if one of us starts dat­ing some­one else, our friend­ship will take a hit. Please give me some ad­vice. — Girl In Love In Con­necti­cut
