An update on my life

So, I got made games manager after so long of working really hard for it, yay! But the salesman at work that I’ve been involved with in a friends with benefits situation for about a year doesn’t have feelings for me and just wants to remain friends because I “mean a lot to him”. And I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t know if I can be friends. But I now have to see him 5 out of 7 days a week ?
