I'm going to try and keep this as short as possible... I've been dating my girlfriend for about 9 months now, and we've been very close friends for nearly 5 years. Everything is great with us... we enjoy the same things, click very well, have no real problems, and always enjoy being with each other. I play World of Warcraft with some buddies of mine and back in October she wanted to try playing since she thought it would be something fun that we could do together. I helped her get into the game and she enjoys playing now too. Over the weekend, one of the players in our guild told her that he had feelings for her (mind you, they've only ever talked over voice chat in game and shared their myspace pages with each other). He ended up leaving our group saying that he couldn't be around her anymore because it was too difficult for him and so on. Honestly it didn't really surprise me as I was already thinking it might happen with this guy (saw some signs that raised a red flag). The problem is, she then told me that she also has feelings for him. Not love him, but has feelings for him. She was very upset and said she didn't realize she had feelings for him until he left. She was upset because she says she realizes she was wrong in having feelings for someone else and that she truly does want to be with me and marry me but she doesn't understand why it happend. I respect the fact that she told me she had feelings for him, she didn't have to do that... but she told me she wanted to be honest with me. She thinks there's something wrong with her for having this happen and she's seeing a therapist this week about it. I don't understand how she can tell me she wants to be with me and what not, but have this happen. Is it possible for you to all of a sudden realize you have feelings for someone like that? Not to mention it's ridiculous because it was over a video game and this dude is across the country from where we live. I'm not sure what to do at this point... she's getting help because she says she's serious about us and getting married. Hell, I was getting ready to start shopping for a ring next week and propose this spring to her... now I don't even know what to do. I feel like I won't be able to trust her if she is talking to another guy friend without something happening. I think I've covered everything, I'm sure I'm forgetting something. Anyway, should I give things a shot with her still? I've never been so happy with someone in my life and I love her to death and want to marry her, but now I'm scared I'm going to get hurt. Any advice is appreciated... thanks for taking the time to read.
