I’m In Love With My Best Friend

This post has already been read 699 times!

I can’t stop thinking about my best friend, I think I love her. A few years ago I thought I liked her, but assumed it was just a phase. I met my ex boyfriend through her and we were together for 2 years. He and I went our separate ways when we decided we should start seeing other people… partially because I couldn’t stop wishing he were her (although he isn’t aware of that.)

I’m starting to think it’s not a phase. She is gay, and a few months ago we slept together. Neither of us have spoken about what happened, but we’ve become so much closer since. I really want to tell her I love her, but if it is a phase I don’t want to crush her, that is if she even feels the same way. I’m worried if I tell her our friendship will suffer… or my ex boyfriend who is also her close friend will be hurt. I don’t know what to do. Help!
