well...if i was in his spot. I'd stick with you so that the friendship would not die....but it would kinda be hard at first to handle.
He has to take rejection and try to forget it. Just learn to be cool friends with you. Unfortunatly, he's not on this forum.......so yeah.
Just calm down and try to forget he ever told you he likes you.....unless he acts a bit creepy-erish for like the next few weeks....then give him a "slap" for me
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. "
-1 Corinthians 13:4-8
