Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. It could be infatuation that is normal for this age which would require sorting out the issue with help of a few common friends or the person concerned (your boyfriend) himself. However, if other facts you report are true like your friend wrongly claiming your boy-friend as her classmate and so on, it could mean underlying psychotic illness like erotomania (persistent delusional disorder) which i do not expect to be in this case. Hence i would suggest you try to sort out the same at the level of your friends initially and seek psychiatric evaluation if required later on.

Hello and thanks for the query
This a common problem that occur at teen age or college life. You have to handle it very sensitively and explain your friend about the problem. If you also love that guy than you can not done much. If not than you can explain that friendship is much bigger than affairs. We can have a friend forever but not boyfriend. You can also take also take a help of your friend who can explain the thing better for you.
Do not worry everything will get better.
