Ive known this guy for over a year and a half, and over the summer we started to hang out a lot more than we used to. He and I have become best friends. In October we started to become really close.. leaning on each other while sitting on the sofa, me putting my legs on him, giving head massages etc.. (harmless).. By the end of October we fully cuddle sober or drunk. When we drink together I usually spend the night, and nothing sexual ever happens, but we spoon and completely cuddle the whole night. We never really talk about it, and dont give me a "hes gay" answer because I know he isn't. So today we're talking about how Im feeling insecure with the stability of our friendship and how its going because I feel like someone else is intruding (another friend).. he assures me nothing can change our 'friendship'..
he then continues to tell me that I am a completely different kind of friend that he is "EXTREMELY FOND OF ME". I ask.. what does that mean?? he replies...
"having a liking or affection for.. love; affection, cherished with strong and unreasoning feeling (dictionary stuff).. [but then continues] but its more than liking, its like to be fond of something you are so close to it, that it becomes emotional and awesome"
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!?! WHAT DOES 'FOND' MEAN TO YOU?? I HAVE NEVER USED THIS WORD.
