You Like Your Best Friend, Now What?

Over time you have developed feelings for one of your close friends. So what should you do? While you don’t want to be friendzoned or potentially ruin a great friendship, you don’t want the opportunity to have an amazing guy slip away. Before you do anything rash and confess your undying love to your best friend, take a moment and think of what to do.
You have strong romantic feelings for your best bud but he’s currently in a relationship with someone else. Do not, I repeat, do not tell him your feelings. It will put him in an awkward position and make you look like the bad guy since your confession can ruin his current relationship. This advice also goes for you if you are currently seeing a guy. It’s unfair to your current partner. If you are with someone, decide truly whether or not he’s right for you and if he’s not, break things off with him before you tell your friend your feelings. You never want to string anyone along.
Now, it would be great if your friend gave you signs he was interested too, but sometimes men are hard to read. If you are unsure whether or not he likes you and you still want to confess how you feel, then you should. When you tell your friend how you feel, don’t state it dramatically or use the word love. While it’s true you both love each other as friends, romantic love is slightly different. Plus using the word love can scare him off. Once you confess, he may need some time to think it over. Remember, your friendship can be completely different now that you have revealed your feelings.
If in the end your friend isn’t into you, it’s not the end of the world. Sometimes it’s better to expose how you truly feel instead of never knowing what could have happened. Hopefully the two of you will be able to move ahead and keep the strong friendship you had but sometimes you will need to give each other some time and space in order to move on.
