There could be some truth here. Maybe I'm mistaking infatuation for love? I've done that before in my younger years. I'd like to think I'm not making that same mistake again.

I've resigned myself to accepting that we will just be friends and I truly do want my friend to find that person she is looking for...and I know it is NOT me.
Are you sure? How can you be so sure? Why are you here? This is a poly site. We are people who are having relationships with multiple loves. Having multiple loves and figuring out a way to deal with it in real life is what we do.

Do you want her to find "that person" because everyone can only have one person?

I think you are having conflicting thoughts and feelings. Which is normal- just own it! :-)
