I really like my brothers best friend, i know he is insanely older then me by 9 years. there the only two things that seem like they are holding us back. I've liked him since i was 7 years old. He said that he wont just hang out with me though, without my brother or someone being there. I explained that I'm not going to just jump on him and be pushy because i know it wont help anything and even then it could hurt our normal friendship. So he told me next Friday we can do something together, like go to a movie. I know to treat it as where only friends, even though i don't want to. But after all of it i still feel like my feelings are a bit hurt that he didn't just want to spend time with me without my brother. it made me feel like I'm still a stupid little kid to him when i know I'm not. And honestly i don't know if my feelings should be hurt or not? so I'm asking all of you, should they be or no?
