My boyfriend is falling in love with another

My boyfriend has a crush on one of our friends. He is disturbed by this because he thinks it’s cheating. I’m okay with this and I will be sad and if he ends up loving her more than me but as I said, I’m okay with it. Currently, he’s afraid that he will love her more. It’s been on his mind a lot. He can’t sleep and is feeling suicidal because of it. I feel awful knowing he feels like this and I don’t know how I can help. What do I do?

  • idk. Can't consider Open relationship as LOVE, How can you even love diff. person at the same time? Or its just me who sees love as sacred. 😭

  • Shit this situation is sticky. His crush sounds real serious but he also sounds committed to you. I would let him do what he wants and support him along the way.

  • Take him to the edge of a cliff and ask him if it's worth it.

  • Such an interesting scenario, and props to him for being able to tell you because I could see it being difficult on his side too. I just have a couple questions:

    How long has he felt like this?
    Do you really feel okay with it?
    If he realizes he doesn't love her and loves you, would you be bothered by the fact this does happen?

    • I don’t know how long but I think a couple of weeks.
      I really am okay with it. I’m all for a open relationship but he doesn’t understand how they want and doesn’t want to be in one.
      I would be bothered by it because I hate seeing how badly he’s been affected.
