I don't want to ruin things... - April 5th 2012, 11:29 PM

hey, I'm really lost at the moment and my friends aren't being very helpful so I thought id try posting on here

since I was ten I was really close with this guy, he was my best friend. As time passed I began to realise that it was starting to be more than that for him and I distanced myself for a while.

I just came back from school camp, on the trip
down we talked for a bit and I realised how much I'd missed him. We were talking and I found my head on his shoulder. I spent the whole camp with him and I'm already missing him.

I think I might be starting to like him but I don't want to ruin what we have and I don't particularly want a relationship right now

what should I do??

Hi Samantha!

Some of the greatest relationships are formed out of friendships. If you don't really want to get into a relationship right now, then don't. If it's meant to be, it'll happen. But don't think it could ruin your friendship, because you have a good chance of having an amazing relationship! Maybe you can try communicating with him, if you guys are that close he should totally understand. Try talking about it with him. I hope this helped a little!

PM me if you need anything!

It's totally understandable if you want to wait and see how things unfold with your friend. There's nothing wrong with holding back, but I would make your intentions very clear to him. For example, resting your head on his shoulder and staying with him 24/7 could be interpreted as a sign that you want something more than friendship. You need to let him know that it's not "flirting" - rather, it's friendly affection. Don't lead him on.
