liking a friend - May 6th 2012, 12:37 PM

there's this guy i like for 3 yrs and he's sort of a friend too. i've been trying to pick up on signs if he likes me too. he was being touchy and chatty towards me all these time and i know he's not like that with our other friends. but this summer i learned that he's been interested on someone else. i'm still going to see him for 5 more months on an almost daily basis and we have common friends. everytime i'm trying to move on, he'll appear beside me and i have this hope raised up. i don't really understand him. what's the best thing to do?

Only you can say what the best thing to do is. You know him best - only you know how he'll react. Really you have two options:
1) Tell him how you feel, and face the possible consequences,
2) Don't do anything.

I can imagine there are very few girls who haven't fallen for a close guy friend. Both of those options have pros and cons, but only you can decide what's best to do

Completely agree with Kate!
You can tell the guy that you like him or not. If you want to see if he feels the same way, that's the only option really.

If you never take a chance, you will never know how he feels.

Good luck! I hope it goes well.

I would definitely tell him how you feel so that you can find out how he feels towards you. If you don't do anything, then this will only continue and that's not exactly preferable. There really only are these two options as said above.

And here you are living, despite it all.
