Dear Panel,

I am 16 years old, almost 17, and I've been forced to grow up by experiences that I've had to go through. I've always felt alone, like there wasn't anyone for me.

I have this amazing and wonderful boyfriend named Corey. He's so understanding, at least he tries to understand what I tell him which is more then I can say for most guys.

I have known this guy named Ryan for 4 years, and I've been in love with him since the first week we met. My love has only grown stronger since then. He's 6 years older than me, though.

I have this wonderful boyfriend, a guy like no other, I know I'll never find another guy like him. But at the same time I love Ryan. He's my best friend and he's the most important man in my life. I'm afraid of losing Corey, but at the same I'm not completely happy in the realtionship.

Ryan is the definition of my dream guy and lately he's been sending me signals hinting that he wants to be more then just friends. I'm so confused. I love them so much.
Please give me your opinion on what I should do.
