My story, but with a twist. This happened years ago, when I had temporarily split with my boyf. One of my male friends had just broken up with his girlf. We were down the pub together to drown his sorrows when suddenly, he declared his love for me. I'd not thought of him in that way at all so I had to turn him down. Also, he'd had a lot to drink and was on the rebound. We never spoke of it again.
A couple of years ago, the same friend told me that he'd held a torch for me for years; he'd only really given up on me when he'd realised that I loved my boyf and that our friendship was too precious to lose. I felt really sorry for him, but there never could be anything between us.
