I've been best friends with someone for 14 years. The past year or so I've developed romantic feelings for her.
I'm stuck in between keeping these feelings in or finally telling her how I feel.
What would you do?
Want to give an example of a possible outcome.
A while back, I met a girl in college and we eventually became very good friends. I'm not sure if we were best friends but we were extremely close; I told her things I to this day haven't told anyone else, and as far as I know she did the same with me. For whatever reason, for the first few years I knew her I just couldn't find her attractive. She's a very pretty girl and my friends would always bring it up when I introduced her to them, but I never saw it.
But then, for some reason I don't know, I started liking her. It was like a switch flipped in me, one day I couldn't care and the next I couldn't stop thinking about her. I remember one particular moment when I ran into her by chance on campus. We talked for a minute or so and she gave me this big smile as she left, as she usually does, and after that I had the biggest butterflies in my stomach. I knew then and there that I had to either tell her ASAP or stop hanging around her, because it was driving me crazy.
I did tell her soon after, knowing she didn't like me, and she let me down pretty easy. By chance, at the same time a new friend of hers asked her out the next week; she said yes. They've been together ever since, 3 years later.
I'd say I'm still good friends with both of them, but ever since that day she acts strangely around me. Although she was my best friend, I'm used to being rejected and figured the best way to go forward would be to treat like I used to; but she sorta started to close herself off from me. She wouldn't talk to me at all right after it happened, until about a month after. And since then, if I so much as glance in her direction she covers herself up and looks another way unless I come over to talk to her. If we're walking and I bump her hand or something by accident, she'll recoil a bit and hold her hand away from me. It makes me uncomfortable to be around her now.
2 things will happen...
It'll change the relationship completely, either you'll both fuck like mad or she'll fuck that guy to your left.
Now then, I'm unsure if I should call you either "A fucking retard" or "Dense motherfucker"
>I've been best friends with someone for 14 years.
You should know everything about this person by now! Like come on, bloody hell! How fucking inept are you?!
