So...
Me and this boy (let’s call him ‘X’) have been really close mates for about 4 years, (nothing more as friends). During this time he admitted to one of my other friends that he reckons he fell in love with me. That was about 2 years ago. I believe he knows I know, but we never discussed it.
Fast forward a year, a girl I never really spoke to before (let’s call her ‘Y’) and I became really close. I later found out she had a massive crush on X. Moving forward another year, she now likes somebody new, but jokes within our friendship group still arise about her liking X, to which she blushes and giggles. We believes she still likes him.
The issue is, X and I are still close mates & more recently he’s been making his feelings obvious to me once again.
I feel really awkward, because I know X likes me, and X knows Y likes him, but Y doesn’t know about X liking me. What the hell do I do?
Y knows we are very close, but would never believe it could be romantic, even though she knows about his admissions about 2 years ago. I think it would hurt her deeply if she knew, but I hate lying to her. I don’t know what to do for the best.... we all go to uni very soon, and I don’t want to ruin the last few weeks we all have together (if she does get upset with us) but like I said Y and I are really close, and so I really don’t like keeping it from her.

HELP!

Hi there.
You and the guy are not official. You just like each other. If you think you should tell the other girl about that, you can.
If she really likes the guy and is bold enough, she will not care about that and will go persue him.
After all, you and him are not official.
