I've been telling myself I'd do this for weeks now, tell my friend, whom I've spent so much time with now that she's back in the city for university, how I feel about her and ask her about being more than friends. I sat there in front of the phone for about 15 minutes, phoned her, didn't really get to the point and said goodbye, then phoned back and basically just poured it all out. I asked her if she wanted to go out and I don't know exactly how it sounded to her when it came out but it was by no means a nice easy, "I know we're friends, but would you be interested in going out with me as more than a friend?" She's been on my mind every day and not asking her has been driving me crazy, so I had to do it. I'm just worried about the impact it might have on our friendship, because I don't want to lose her either way. I can deal with being just friends if need be, I just need to find out how she feels first so I can draw a firm conclusion.
I kind of wish I would've done it in person, but the words just wouldn't come out whenever I was with her. Basically, her response was she needs time to think about it. I kind of layed on my bed staring at the ceiling for awhile, and got up and went for a run to get my mind off things. I really hope for the best and any advice on how to not make this any more awkward would be appreciated.
