Hi there and thank you for seeking advice. You both have taken a big step by openly discussing the feelings that have been there all along. The challenging part now is to be patient and wait for him to do what he needs to do (end the situation with the other girl) so that you two can move forward. You will probably feel like you want to hurry things along to the point of you two being together as soon as possible but try and tell yourself to enjoy the moment and the realization that he feels towards you as much as you feel towards him. He has let you know how he feels and will take the needed steps to end the other situation. Give it time and just be yourself. Don't try to force yourself to act a certain way. Be as you have always been because that is the person he knows and has feelings for. Things have already taken shape and developed. Just go with it if you can without pressuring or pushing. It won't take him long. A few weeks perhaps. I think you likely already had the answers to your questions but needed some reassurance that you are doing the right thing. Yes, be patient, give him space and time, and act as you always have. Things are already falling into place. The nice part is that you know you get along with him and are compatible since you both have shared friendship and intimacy. Best wishes for you both to have a lifetime of love, happiness, and fulfillment!
