I have an older sister who I’ll call B. B has a boyfriend who I’ll call J.
Just like I said in the title, J has confessed that he has feelings for me and he said that he has had them for a long time. Just to clarify J and B have been together for almost a year and I’ve known J because my sister had a huge crush on him when they were in school.
So I was really happy for her when she told me they were dating and since my sister still lives at home with our parents, J has been over a lot of times for dinner or just to hang out with my sister.
During our first meeting when B brought him home to meet the family, I didn’t try to be overly friendly with him but I was nice to him. My sister told me later that he thought that I was a bit too cold to him and asked me to be nice to him so every other time I saw him, I was nice. I greeted him, talked with him about several topics which we had in common like anime which we were both very huge fans of and I thought he was really cool. But that was it. I had no interest in him romantically and just saw him as my sister’s boyfriend.
But just yesterday during a party with our friends, J obviously came as my sister’s date. I was having a lot of fun and I remember J coming up to me and asked if I could help him get drinks from the fridge. On the way there, we were talking about our costumes and how they matched as they were from the same anime. he grabbed my hand and told me he had something to say.
He then confessed to me that he had a crush on me and that he was first hoping that his feelings for me would go with time but he felt like everyday he came to our house his feelings would grow. He also said that he can’t stop thinking about me. I felt uncomfortable as he spoke and asked what about my sister and their relationship and he said that he loves my sister but loved me more than her and said that he was sorry for having feelings for me and that he just felt like he had to let me know. I was quiet and so was he as he looked at me awaiting my answer.
I told him that I don’t have feelings for him and I think that him confessing to me will ruin the friendly relationship between us and I told him that I’d tell my sister because I didn’t want her to misunderstand. But he begged me not to tell my sister because he still wanted to date her and I told him that he can’t date someone if he doesn’t have feelings for them.
I found my sister and pulled her aside while telling her that there was something she had to know and we went to the bathroom which was fairly quiet and I told her about what J had told me. She looked at me silently for a few seconds before going outside the bathroom.
I followed her and saw her take J away by the hand as they went to a room, I couldn’t focus on the party anymore and kept looking up to see if J would leave but he didn’t leave. Even after the party was beginning to end, they were still up there. I thought maybe it had gone bad and that J had probably hurt my sister so I told my friend what happened and we both went to check on her.
We found them cuddling on her bed and immediately she saw me, she told me to get out of her room. I was confused and asked what I had done. She told me that she’s always known that I was jealous of her relationship with J and that she couldn’t believe I’d go as far as lying about J confessing to me
Apparently J told my sister that we were talking about anime while getting more drinks and I began to confess about how I liked him from the moment I saw him and that he tried to reject me nicely but I ran off to B and “told her a completely different story” just to make J look bad.
Everyone thinks I’m lying and trying to break them up when J was the one who is twisting the story, i don’t know what to do.
