Heres my story...I've been involved with this man who we'll call "Mark" for about a month and a half. We were old grade school sweethearts. We recently met up again after 5 years and were catching up on old times when he leaned in and kissed me. That kiss sparked this month and a half relationship. I was surprised to learn that he now has a 1 yr old son to a girl that its safe to call my friend, though we are not particularly close. This information was discovered before we began our relationship, however. I had no problem with this because I had met his son of whom I absolutely adore. On various occassions, "Mark" had refered to me as his son's step mother, a title I most graciously took to heart. Then my friend found out a week ago, and from what I hear, wasnt to pleased. Basically, they were still together. I was never hesitant to express my discomfort about going behind my friend's back, but that didnt stop me from beginning to gain feelings for him. I had stop talking to her 4 monthes prior, so we hadnt and havent spoken in a while. On many occassions, he had expressed his feelings to me and about me. He had begun to fall in love with me in this short amount of time and I felt the same. But when his girlfriend(the mother of his child) confronted him on it, she was even more furious. So I told him that eventually, he'd have to choose. My previous relationship was an absolute failure, a man I was with since freshmen year in high school up and left me for a girl he met over the internet, via myspace. I was not in the state of mind to be let down again. Unfortunately, Mark did the expected and after 4 days of stalling, he told me he chooses her. 2nd Best again. He had discussed the matter with his friends and my sister and came to the conclusion, he was much happier with me. However, his girlfriend dangled child custody in his face, Im sure causing him to go back to her. So I told him, without much emotion [showing at least] that we could be friends and nothing more. He still expects me to call, come over and treats me as his girlfriend still[ affection, calls, etc.] but on the inside Im hurting from his choice. How do I tell him that I cant be his friend? How do I move on? Please help before I go through another depression!
