Alright, here's a little background. I've been friends with (we'll call him Joe) Joe for about two years now. Over the last two years, we've become really good friends, but not best friends (at least in my eyes). We worked together at once place, now we work together at another place. I know his family very well, they always come into where we work and chat with me for long periods of time.
Today, while I was at work, a mutual friend (we all work together) pulled me aside and told me that she had to talk to me. Apparently, Joe was lamenting how he is in love with someone, but he can't do anything about it. When pressed, he told our mutual friend that it was his best friend. When pressed, he explained it was me. Now, first of all, it's news to me that he considers me his best friend, let alone that he's in love with me. I'm married and even if I wasn't married, he's not my type at all. The thought that she's lying has occurred to me - but I really don't think she'd lie about something like this and it kind of explains his behavior lately. Our mutual friend wanted to tell me, because she thought that I needed to know how he felt (especially if he's telling people behind my back - that means he might come talk to me about it).
I'm not really sure what to do or say at this point, or if I should even do or say anything. I'm flattered, but I mean, it's weird. I know I'm a bit of a flirt, but come on, I'm that way with everyone (I don't discriminate! ), so I doubt it's that... He knows nothing will ever happen, so I'm not worried about him pulling moves on me, but it's really weird working with him now.
Anyone ever had this happen to them? Come on, give me your words of wisdom!
