Well, yea. So, we've been best friends for a long time now, and freshman year, I started to like him [I'm a girl], and it seemed for a while that he liked me back. So, we got really really close, and sophomore/junior summer vacation, he came out to me as a gay. I told myself that I wouldn't like him anymore, because, well, there would be nothing between us because of this. But, I still love him, and I don't know what to do.

Weak from lack of oxygen; strangled by the thought.

Since I can't see how you're going to have any relationship other than a friendship I don't think there's actually much you can do. When I find myself in that position the best thing I've found is to focus on enjoying what I can have instead of dwelling on what isn't available to me.

Ultimately this doesn't need to be a big stumbling block. You can still have a close, loving relationship even if it's not the romantic one you originally had in mind.
