Ok. So theres a guy,James that I'v known for almost twelve years and I'm really into him but hes 20 and I'm 15. He comments to me constantly that hes into me and that he wants to be with me,but us being together would get him thrown in jail. I like him but I can't be with him, despite what I want. Also, My x,Jon, has been there for me through so much. And he knows more about me than any other person in the world.We've gone out 2 times and our friends alwayz seem to find a way to pull us apart. I love him alot and I want to give us another try but things alwayz get screwed up. I'm tired of getting my heart broken! And I know he is to. He can never find a relationship that seems to work for him. I'm the only one that has actually lasted for a long period of time. I don't know how to tell him that I'm still there for him and I don't know how to let go of James. How do I let him down? Please reply as quickly as possible!!
Honestly hun, it's not going to be easy letting James down. Letting someone down is never easy. All you can do is talk to him, and tell him that your feelings for him are only as a friend (if that's what you want in him).
If you want a relationship with Jon again in the future, you can't let your friends get in the way. It would be YOUR relationship, not theirs. They can still be your friends by all means, but don't let them break up your relationship.
