In Love with Best Friend? We can help you confess!

In love with best friend... so WhyArentWeDating?

I’m in love with my best friend. But… how to tell him i like him?

We study together. Hang out in the same friend group. He’s very nice to me but doesn’t show any signs that he likes me. He treats me just as a friend but i want to be more. I don’t want to lose our friendship because it’s very important to me.

Never mind a *best* guy friend but just a friend. This can be a very stressful experience for you… to fall in love with a best friend.

Sometimes it’s better just to leave this alone. But if you are certain that you love this friend and want to be more than friends then here is some advice to tell him how you feel.

The direct route to telling him how you feel:

When you’re alone with him say:

“Do you think we could be more than friends?”

This takes guts but shows directly that you want to be more than friends. If he jokes around and says something like “We’re more than friends already, we’re best friends!” tell him “I’m being serious” and then see his reaction. If he tells you that he likes you back then you are on the way to getting together!

If he doesn’t respond right away he might be in shock. At this point you can highlight to him that you ‘never want to lose him as a friend’ and that the decision is his. Tell him that ‘you will still always be there for him as a friend’.

Remember that guys (especially shy ones) can get freaked out by a girl confessing her feelings !!*BUT DON’T WORRY*!! Most guys just need time to overcome the shock and get used to the idea that’s all. He needs time to think about it! If he needs 1 week then give him the time he needs. I know it will be hard but DO NOT INITIATE CONTACT DURING THIS TIME. Remember, he needs recover from the shock.  Even if he doesn’t speak to you during this time – don’t worry! after 1 week try speaking to him again and he should be able to tell you more clearly whether he likes you back as he’s had time to think about it.

Good Luck!
