[H]e will not remain my friend after all this.
So he's being honest with you on the one hand, but he's also emotionally blackmailing you.
Having a romantic relationship with someone because you don't want to lose his friendship seems like a terrible reason.
that he's blackmailing you into having a romantic relationship? If you don't do what HE wants and what HE thinks should happen, he will cancel the relationship. That's not a real relationship, that's about control. If a relationship isn't a 2-way street, what ias the sense of being in it? It is doomed.
I also wasnt attracted to him in a physical or sexual sense.
