You're not putting enough info out there. What made this friend believe he had a chance? -most men wouldn't say anything unless the woman, even if she didn't mean to do so, let the man think that there's something there. If you've told your husband's friend about how you feel, you've already crossed the boundary into emotional affair territory. You're gonna get crushes, but it's impossible for you and this guy to be friends because feelings were put out there and made known. The way I see it, you got two options: either tell your friend that his friend tried to kiss you, or avoid this fellow at all costs. You don't have to tell your husband that you fancy his friend--unless you've put something in writing, your husband need not know--but you can mention that your husband's friend had made a pass at you. If you try to avoid him, your husband will begin to wonder what's going on. This guy can't be your friend judging by what he's said, so forget about possibly saving the friendship. He doesn't want to be your friend, and he's not your husband's friend.
