I am a university student aged 20. My male friend and I have se_x on a regular basis because it is something we thought would work a few months ago.
I was okay with a 'friends with benefits' scenario, but he recently began dating someone and is considering a relationship with her.
I think I have feelings for him and would like him to get into a proper relationship with me instead. The problem is, he will probably not think of me as a girlfriend, because we spoke about it at the start and told each other that we would never complicate things by getting into anything serious.
I am miserable about him dating someone and want to tell him how I feel, but am afraid he will reject the idea completely, which will devastate me. What should I do?
