Not clear, from your message, what the problem actually is. You call him a straight male friend, so presumably you're gay. Did you expect something sexual and emotional to arise between you two ? If so, wasn't that rather unrealistic ? He's a flatmate. You have him some help and support. As Zee says, didn' you do this out of the goodness of your heart, rather than expecting a specific reward ? Especially if the reward you expected, was romantic and contrary to his own nature ? So, were you used ? Did he promise rewards he hasn't delivered on ? Did you hope for greater involvement in the business than has turned out to be the case ?
As for channelling and using one's emotions more constructively, that's where counselling comes into its own.
