DEAR DEIDRE: I FELL in love with my best male friend after we slept together – but he is still seeing other women.
Our relationship is a mess. He says he loves me as his friend but isn’t ready for a commitment.

I’m 31 and he is 29. We had sex one night when I was upset about a break-up and he comforted me.
Since then we’ve had sex every time we meet.
I’ve told him that if he doesn’t want to be my boyfriend, I need some space from him as this situation is messing with my head.

Every problem gets a personal reply, usually within 24 hours weekdays.
But we always end up kissing and back in bed together.
I don’t know what to do. I need him in my life but I can’t bear knowing he’s having sex with other women.
DEIDRE SAYS: It might not be his intention but your friend is having his cake and eating it too.
That is unfair. If he truly cares about you, he needs to make a decision: Either he is your platonic best friend or he will be your boyfriend.
If he cannot decide, you need to be strong and not see him for a while.
My support pack, Addictive Love, should help you better understand this difficult situation.
