Question I don't really want to tell her...it's kinda complicated - January 6th 2009, 12:29 AM

I'm sure most of you have figured out by now that I like a guy and I think he likes me too. The problem is my friend "Ellie". She's really nice and friendly but she can be a bit...intrusive isn't really the right word but it's the closest I can think of. My mom's friend has a son my age and my mom was saying that we'd make a cute couple. Ellie has a friend that likes this boy and I was telling her how my mom thought I should go out with him. Well, Ellie is also friends with the boy and she told him that we talked about him but she made it sound like I like him. My mom got that straightened out when she talked to her friend.
But now I'm afraid to tell Ellie that I like "Tyler" (that's what I'll call the guy I like) because she talks to him some. I don't think they're friends but they see each other some at school I think. I want Tyler to know I like him, but I'm not ready yet. Ellie is really sensitive though and I'm worried that if Tyler and I start going out that she'll get her feelings hurt. What is the best solution to this?

What about it makes you think she'll be upset? That she didn't know you liked him?
I don't think she would mind if you waited until you were dating to find out that you had feelings from him. Just tell her that you weren't comfortable with anyone knowing incase he found out and didn't reciprocate. I think everyone knows how that would feel, and who knows, she will probably not even mind nor ask about it.

If she does, just remember that it is your business and your relationship. You don't always have to have 100% perfect answers for your friends.
