Feels like I'm cheating on him...?

by Layne on March 4, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I met someone this past weekend and we really hit it off. Today we were walking around after school together just trying to get to know each other better, but I kept getting these looks from my friends like 'what do you think you're doing?' Isn't high school supposed to be about trying new things like this? And just when I thought I was becoming more of a 'normal' teenager people are against me... Anyways we were walking around and I passed my best guy friend. Him and I have this weird relationship that he's basically my brother but I don't really know where we stand most of the time; he's just always there for me and I am the same for him. Ask anyone and they'll say we're going to end up together. Even one of my teachers today asked if we were going to prom together next year. Both of us responded with an, 'ew. No way. Are you kidding?' Anyways I saw him in the hallway while I was with this new guy and it felt weird.. We're not together but were so close that it felt strange to have him see me with someone else.. Is that normal?
