Another year, another hiatus from me. You know how it goes. Last year was quite a year, with quite a lot of things happening. More or less, besides losing a friend's mother to cancer, the biggest thing was my move. I moved over the summer, and in the middle of highschool...its a bitch. And after a few incidents with some girls, I've found someone I really like, but there's a problem. It SEEMS like she likes me, and I really like her (I made her chocolate covered strawberries for christmas, think she got the hint?), but her friend says she's liked this one guy for awhile. The problem is: she's more or less my best friend here. Now, unless she's leading me on, I think she really does like me. But I'm asking myself to take the risk and have the possibility of being with someone I'd be reallllly happy with, or make the relationship with my best friend totally awkward. I mean, I literally think about her all day. Any help would be truly appreciated, and I'm glad to be back. and I wish I could change this damn name :P.
More relationship crap from an old board member :D

My personal view is that best friends come and go, but someone you'd be really happy in a relationship with is a treasure, so you should be prepared to perhaps have to sacrifice the one, for a reasonable possibility of the other.
Oh, and welcome back, gothicbass! We had the place redecorated for you. :smile:
I agree with Ineligible. Can she really remain a best friend if you have these feelings for her? What happens if you start dating a different girl and you still have strong feelings for your best friend? Will it doom other possibilities?Go for it friend. If it's meant to be, then it will come naturally. I truly hope you're on the dating ladder.
Thanks guys, I think I'm gonna suck it up and go for it.
It really does show ALOT about a guy when he puts himself out there and takes the first step.
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
