I told one of my best friends I like her and it didn’t turn out well at all.
We’re Juniors in high school, and we’ve been friends ever since 8th grade. I told her I was gay the summer we were going into Sophomore year.
Now the night I told her, I asked HER for advice about it. I told her, “So there’s this girl I like, but I’m not sure if I should tell her or not.” She told me, “You should tell her, I mean if she says no then nothing will happen.” I then proceed to ask her, “What if I don’t know if she’s?” and “Do you think it could ruin our friendship?” All she said was, “I don’t know.” You could definitely tell that she really wanted to help me, but I wasn’t really getting much feedback. Anyway, I got home that night and I texted her saying that I like her. She told me, “i’m sorry, but i don’t feel the same way and honestly it does make me kind of uncomfortable.” Of course I was a little heartbroken at first, but then I realized, “Oh crap! One of my best friends is uncomfortable around me! How can I make sure our friendship doesn’t fall apart?!” After she told me that, I asked what kind of uncomfortable was it? And I don’t want us to stop being friends, do you? She just said, “I don’t know, everything’s weird.” We haven’t talked in over a month and I’m getting really worried that our friendship is already over. I CAN’T lose her! Not because of the fact that I like her, but because she is one of my closest and dearest friends….I just can’t live without this girl! I am getting over her, I basically almost am, but I just need her in my life. I see her school constantly, but we never acknowledge each other or anything. I want to, but hell…I wouldn’t know where to begin!
I really need help before I lose her permanently! D:
