So "M" and I have been together for a while now, but recently I've been having intense feelings for one of my very close friends. I told him about it and he completely flipped out, which is understandable given the situation. I told him that I was confused and didn't know what to do, and he asked that we not talk until I had made up my mind, however, he has called me at least three times since he told me that 2 days ago. I really do love him and I don't want to hurt him anymore than I already have by telling him, but I just don't know what to do. My feelings for my friend are so strong that it's almost overwhelming, but I don't want to break it off with "M" just on a whim, although i know it's so much more than that. I'm going crazy trying to decide what to do, I had a nervous breakdown on the phone with him while we were discussing what I should do, and now he feels like he needs to compromise so that I'll be relatively stable. I feel so dirty and manipulative, I love him, I don't want him to compromise himself and his integrity just because I'm being indecisive. I don't know what to do, can someone please help me?
