I thought friends with benefits could work – but now I've fallen for him

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN I agreed to be a “friend with benefits” with a male pal, I never expected to fall for him.

But now, after hooking up with him several times a week for the past few months, I’ve realised I’ve fallen in love.

Should I tell him?

I’m 26 and he’s 28. We speak almost every day.

We also have the best sex I have ever had. Our chemistry just works.

The problem is, he said from the start that he didn’t want a proper relationship. And he has been dating other people.

Yet I get the impression he feels something for me.

He seems jealous if I mention any other guys, or that I have been looking at dating sites.

I’m so confused.

If I tell him the truth, it could ruin everything.

DEIDRE SAYS: Yes, it is true that feelings change, and what you agreed to a few months ago may not be working.

You need to be honest with him or you will continue to feel confused and hurt.

He should see he’d be a fool to throw away your strong connection.
But be prepared for him to stick to his guns.

If he still feels he is not ready for commitment, you need to let him know that the arrangement no longer works for you.

Stop meeting for sex, and my support pack Moving On will help you look forwards.
