My girlfriend tells me that she loves me and I believe her, we have been together for about 3 months and things have been going great, recently, however, we have been fighting about some things and we have realized that I can be too clingy and controlling at times and I recognize that and am trying to work on it, also, I have been away from her for the past week or so because of sickness and I can't be there for her when she needs me. That being said, while I was away she had some issues and went to a guy friend of hers who is a friend of both her and me, he is a very nice and caring guy, but there is one problem, he likes my girlfriend and he told her so. Last night I finally got out of the house and met with her and she confessed that she does have some feelings for him, but that she also loves me and I believe her, she has also said that she needs space to concentrate on other things in her life and I understand that and need time of my own. She has also told me that she will always love me and will always be there for me, but she doesn't know if she wants to be my girlfriend anymore, maybe friends would be better she said. I don't want to go from being her boyfriend to being only her best friend because I love this girl and I want to be with her through both the good and the bad times, I think that we can work through this together even though she says that she truly doesn't know what she wants to happen. I love this girl and I want to be with her, but I don't know what to do anymore. If anyone could offer some advice, I would be very happy to hear it.
