I am EXACTLY in a place like this.

Please tell him.

Tell him. Seriously. My best guy friend and I knew each other since we were babies. We were both terrified that something would go wrong and ruin our friendship but so far things have worked out. Novemer 12th is our 4 year anniversary.

I fell in love with my best guy friend. I always thought he'd never be interested in me.

It was our three month anniversary four days ago

Just tell him :hug:

Just tell him, if he really cares about you as either a romantic partner or even a best friend. He'll still love you no matter what. You only live once, and you can't live wondering what could have been.

Dear ST,
TELL HIM. You only live once.
Currently dating (and thoroughly in love with) my best guy friend.

I had a crush on one of my friend's younger brother, which ripped me apart for months. If I hadn't developed a crush on another guy, I think I'd still be stuck on the younger brother. I would have dreams about asking my friend for permission to ask her brother out to school dances, or just if I could date him in general. I was terrified of telling anyone, so I didn't. I lucked out and the feelings faded away. Maybe the same will happen for you...
I'd just say, check for flirts back. See if they're returned. I, personally, stop if I can tell someone doesn't like me back, and the feelings just die out. I'm not sure if that would make it more difficult, but it's a thought, and you could always laugh them off and say "What? Oh that? I was kidding!"

Good luck :)

I've been in this situation. In fact, one of his younger sisters asked me if I liked him. I know that it's hard to keep inside. Me and him have been friends for about 8 years. One of my friends has been pushing me to tell him. And I won't cause just like you ST, I don't wanna screw things up. Recently, I've realized that we will never have the chance of being together just cause I'm not his type so I've started to let go. But it's hard.

I know you'll make the best decision for your situation. Good luck :]
AngelKae Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012
Like most of the other comments here, I've been in this situation before...Loved him for four years, ever since I met him, and we'd been referring to each other as brother and sister for that entire time. I told him that I loved him more recently, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I've ever made. He held the same feelings towards me, and we've been dating ever since :)

Whatever you choose to do, I wish you luck with the whole situation! I hope whatever you choose works out for you :heart:

I was in this situation. It was caused by him going off with his other friends. Once something has been taken away from me, I want it more.

I haven't talked to him in abbout a year.

I miss him.
Labradorlove Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
epic fail: ofcourse it's: when HE really thinks of you as a sister, your friendship can take this!
Labradorlove Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012
Dear ST,

I am in the same sort of situation as you are (I'm not the only one, I know), although I've fallen for the girl that calls me her sister. I told her that I am in love with her, but that our friendship is always what will be most important to me. And although she isn't in love with me, it is the best thing I've ever done. Cause she now realizes why I sometimes struggle with things (such as talking about relationships) and makes sure I'm ok and she's given me a fair chance to get over her, because I now am completely positive that nothing will ever happen between us and so I can let go of the little hope I still had left.

So I would tell him how you feel, because I think it's gonna help you getting over him and then after that being able to refer to him as a brother and really feel that way :)

It'll work out! When I really thinks of you as a sister, your friendship can take this!

This happened to me a while back.. I told him.. At first it was fine, then I regretted it with all my heart
Dreaming-is-Freedom Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Oh gosh, I am in exactly the same situation. But I realised today that I'm happy to be just his friend or more if he wants. But I totally get how you feel ST :(
kyrsting Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Student Photographer
I completley understand how you feel. It eats me up inside.
minako13 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
I know how you feel... But if your worried maybe it's okay not to tell him. It's okay not to want to risk a friendship. Wait and see how you feel later. Then decide.
veddabredda Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know how you feel. Wow.

I'm just gonna go ahead and share some personal experiences here. I've had two male best friends, and I fell for both of them. Once at sixteen and then at seventeen. Neither of them liked me back, and I knew this. (They liked other girls.) I told them both anyway, beause, well, "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." I figured that if they couldn't deal with me liking them then they weren't worthwhile friends anyway, and didn't deserve my company. I still agree with this, so I think you should definitely tell him. If he bails on you, he's been a jerk all along and you're all the better for being rid of him.

However - and I don't want you to get your hopes up but - I did actually end up dating both of them. One for 9 monts and the other for 16. You see, being honest with people enables you to get even closer to them and eventually, they both started liking me back. Since I had previously established that I liked them, it was easy for them to come clean. The relationships were very different in quality, but both ended because we'd simply developed in different ways and didn't fit anymore. I'm friendly with them both today.

Oh, and by the way? At the time I was an overweight and spotty teenager with glasses and serious self-esteem issues.
I-am-the-Rabbit Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012
Well, if you want to keep this a secret from him then you have to ask yourself this,
Are you willing to watch him date other people?
Are you prepared to have him refer to you as his "sister"
Are you willing to help him though relationships, knowing you won't be able to be the girl he cares about?
Are you ready to find someone else?
Are you willing to let him walk away from you, never knowing how you feel about him?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, then you probably shouldn't tell him, because your feelings aren't that strong for him and you'll easily find someone else. But if you answered no to any of these questions, and you are sure that you love him more then the friendship, take a chance with fate and tell him. Even if he doesn't return the feelings, you know'll at lest know, and he can see how you feel. He can easily have hidden feelings for you too, you never know unless you try. So don't let this be something you'll regret when your old and your holding the hands of a man you don't love, wonder what your best friends' answer would have been when you said "I love you"!

I wish you the best ST, and I hope you listen to your heart, and not the logic in your head. :heart:
