Hey ya'll! This is my first actually question on this site, although ive tried to help with some. Im 'friends with benefits' with one of my best friends, but im also in love with him. He doesnt no that i fell for him and we live in different states, and im going back to mine until december, so when we do see eachother it means alot to me. I want to tell him that i like him ALOT but im really shy when it comes to things like that with him and i always freze, plus i wouldnt wanna ruin our friendship over somthing like this. Should i tell him like while im still in town or even at all? if so how? Im soo confused and really want things to work out but i wouldnt want things to be akward- id rather just have him not know. Thanks for everything to anyone who bothers to answer!
How do i tell him? Plleaasee respond quick!
I don't think there's any safe way to do this, because you don't know how he feels. If he doesn't feel the same it's bound to be awkward - it's just one of those things.If you don't tell him, you'll have a friendship that to you is frustrating (and, for all you know, to him too). And you'll always wonder what might have been. Effectively, you'll be frozen, trapped, unable to go forward or back. I don't think you want that. Even if the worst happens, and he doesn't feel the same and the friendship is over, at least you can start again."I want to be more than a friend." "I'm falling in love with you." - Blurt something out. It's inevitably going to be awkward, but do it anyway.
I know what you mean about not wanting to screw up the friendship. My current boyfriend and I used to have a sort of relationship like that. I have to say that talking about it is the best thing to do.
