How do you fight feelings for someone you can't be with? Is it possible to be "just friends" with someone you are attracted to? (We are both in relationships, by the way).

blonde30s agony auntif you are both in r.ships then its best to not see each other and have no contact is the only way to get over this person. if you want to be together then its best you both end the r.ships you are both in now and take some time out to be single and get to know each other as friends when your both single and see how it goes from there.

Im in the same position right now. Only it was more than attraction. Strong feelings developed and although nothing physical happened it was very intense.

What I can tell you is that these feelings will fade eventually. It just depends how you handle them. I am still friends with the person and my feelings are going slowly but surely! It has taken a long time though!

But as alexia said, just let fate deal with it.
