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