Gist: I call her my Friend but i think i am in Love with Her, Should I tell Her?  (Read 1666 times)

So this is about a female friend I've known for about 3+ years now. We met through our mutual friends and slowly became close over time. When I met her, she was dealing with this guy she had known for 2 years before into our friendship started going out with him but for the past 2 years now, the both of us have been single.

I obviously have feelings for her.

But the thought of telling her how I feel just drains me. I've had some real bad luck with women in the past and I just don't have that confidence to get out there and make it happen anymore. I just remain passive and in a comfort zone.

To add to this, I consider her my closest female friend.

She recently confiding in me saying .."what would I do without you."

I don't feelings have really hit me like a ton of bricks since she came back here for a vacation.

Should I even ask? I feel like she kind of likes me but we've been friends for so long..there's too much at stake. Do I even stand a chance? Does any of this mean anything? I need someone to slap me in the face and wake me up..or tell me what's happening from an outside perspective

I have been in that shoe ones and i would have said dont tell cos you might loose her which i did but i will tell you to tell her cos at the end you are free.

If she concurs, then you guys are happy to flow the Line

If she says No, you free yourself from the burden in ya heart and move forward whatever the road ahead looks like


There is a saying that out of good friendship is born love,you may be surprised she is just too ashame to ask you out in which case you have just been hurting yoursef for what would be a smart move even to her,
So man up and tell her how you feel.
