Hey guys!! Wow, it's been like two years since I've posted anything, but I'm back now... Well anyway, I thought I'd start a post about falling in love with your best friend because I think that's what's happening to me and I'm curious how other people have handled it. My best friend (Im his best friend too!) and I have been friends for like 7 and a half years and weve been really close for about 2 and a half years now. Since we've gone away to college, we've only gotten closer; we talk everyday. I love him and I know he loves me too, but I think I'm IN love with him. I don't know what to do about it because I don't know how he feels, and I'm scared to ask because I would be devastated if I did anything to jeopardize our friendship. So, have you ever fallen in love with your best friend? Did you do anything about it? How did it turn out? What happened to your friendship?

I told my best friend Jennifer that I was in love with her about four years ago. We didn't get together but it did strengthen our friendship. We developed a more open communication between us and were eventually even able to joke about me being in love with her. Now she's in college and I'm still a senior in high school and we recently slept together when I went up to visit her. (More on this here)

We didn't talk about it beforehand and now things are a little weird between us. She's been treating me like a "fool-around friend" lately but I have to put a stop to that since I started seeing someone in the past couple of weeks.

Bottom line is, I would tell your best friend how you feel and keep the lines of communication open always. Your friendship is only in jeopardy if you don't talk to him. Keeping your feelings bottled up will only make it worse and more desperate. Best friends can weather a great deal so I'm pretty sure that you'll come out of this just fine.

Good luck, sweetie,
Kara
