    Not really sure where to start on this one... But here goes. I have a good friend who I've known for a few years now and in the past few months I've started to develop feelings for her (I'm a girl too, if it makes a difference). We see each other regularly and I enjoy her company and would honestly like things to go a bit further. I know that she used to have feelings for me but I'm not sure if she does anymore. She is very complimentary of my appearance but perhaps she's just being nice?

    To throw a spanner in the works, I have a long term boyfriend. I really love him and we have a good relationship, but he lives pretty far away and we are at quite different stages in our life. I feel horrible that I have feelings for someone else (even if I haven't acted on them) but mainly just very confused. I feel like I like them both and I have no idea what to do. I'd like to work out how I truly feel but everytime I think I have, I realise that I'm still unsure.

    It's a tough one but you need to ask yourself who you really want to be with. You like another girl but you love your boyfriend. I think you would have to be 100% sure that she likes you anyway or you'll end up losing both. Think it through but you probably should stay with your boyfriend.
