Fallen in love with the idea....but the person?

I have posted before (some of you may remember) about this one particular guy who has been an absolutely amazing friend and I was unsure on whether it was more...well...I've been thinking...a lot! So basically this is the story;

Not long after I posted about the fact I definitely liked him and more than just a friend, he started being all weird and distant. I hadn't said or done anything differently so I don't know how coincidental the two things are? So, I guess I quickly got over the idea that nothing would happen....only recently we are on really good terms again, only it just seems to be as friends.

Do I really, really like him? I don't know! (Honest answer!) I have this weird ideology that he really would make the perfect husband...I know perfect doesn't exist but perfect for an imperfect world type thing. And I could really imagine myself settled down with him in the very long term (I'm talking 10-15 years!) and having a family with him. We would both be successful career wise but my career would fit around having children....ok, so for someone who insisted she would never have kids, I am getting slightly broodier, the older I get!

On reflection and even typing this I know I sound like some deluded teenager with some perfect fairytale lifestyle all planned...I know life doesn't work like that and I know this is never really likely to happen...but I think I've kind of fallen in love with the idea...and I would love a relationship with this one individual; however, I don't think it is reciprocated.

I don't know if I'm really asking for advice or just having a bit of a ramble...I guess I just feel like it's not normal to feel like this!? People have hinted that a lot of successful relationships have started as close friendships but I don't know...I'm just a little confused!

    Remember my guy?

    I'm currently sat on his Sofa after he left for work. It can work really well.

    My one major concern is asking him, him saying no and our friendship being ruined. Its the only thing stopping me...especially as i work closely with him. And by that I mean I work so closely I even sit next to him lol! I wouldn't want to make things awkward...would be so much easier if he just asked me! But i dont know if he is even interested!!
