Open Letter: Torn

I recently saw your post about the father giving his daughter a half heart necklace and it stirred up some feelings I wasn’t ready to deal with.

I have a wonderful fiance. No complaints there. But ever since I can remember, I’ve secretly had a crush on one of my best friends brother. I moved away for college and have now moved back to my hometown. My best friend invited me to her daughter’s birthday party and her brother was there with his wife. Seeing him brought back so many feelings. We exchanged numbers. We started talking everyday. And NO we have not had sex! I thought we were just really good friends. Until a couple of months ago he gave me a half heart necklace and told me that he knew in his heart that one day we would be together. When that time came he would make my heart whole by giving me the other half. This was his way of letting me know that I will always have a piece of his heart. Ever since that day, he’s the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning and the last thing I think about before I go to sleep. I can honestly say that I am in love with this man. I feel like we are going to be together one day too. Problem is… I am supposed to get married this summer. I’m torn because I don’t want to get married knowing I’m in love with someone else. But I don’t want to wait around for something that may never happen. I’m so confused. Please pray for God to have His way in this situation & give me the answers i need. Also any nonjudgemental feedback is welcomed.
