Hi Mel, I`m going through a situation myself where someone I called my best friend who is a narcissist manipulated me, lied to me, and made me feel like I was doing something wrong. I`ve known this girl for seven years, she was with one of my girlfriends, they broke up, she turned to me to talk to her, and when I met her, she had marks around her neck and she told me that her ex-boyfriend strangled her and put a gun to her head and said, He shot him in the head and buried him in his garden. So I was there for her and I helped her and we became very good friends, but I, on the other hand, fell madly in love with her, I told her about my feelings, but she said she just wanted to remain friends, which I completely accepted. Six years later, she lost her mother in the house where she lived, had to be sold, so she looked for a house to rent, she asked one of her best friends to put her in her name because she could not afford to give her name because of her financial situation. For my part, I took time off to help her move and repair this house because she intended to buy it. I work at her house almost every day and sometimes I sleep on her couch, sometimes she sleeps with me on the couch, but all just friends.
