I really like a guy that I have known for years now and we've grown to become best friends! He really likes me too but I'm afraid of taking it one step further!
The problems are that I'm afriad that if we break up we wont be as close as we are at the moment!! And also...we're going to the same college this year but I can only gurantee that we'll be seeing eachother for 2 years tops! If it gets really serious I wouldnt be able to part with him after college!! I really dont know what to do!

okay. yes, you want this guy to stay close to you. but, if you don't go one step further, you'll spend the rest of your life wondering what would have happened if you did. you can't live forever, and you and this guy might have something really special. you already are good friends, that proves something right there. so i say you take the risk...

Life is all about taking risks from the second you're born to the last second before you die. Those risks are what make up a persons life.

Situations like these are all about what-ifs, but you'll never really know what may result until you throw caution to the wind and take a chance on something.

Sure, you may get hurt, get your heart broken, and damage a friendship, but you can't expect to go through life without a littleo f that along the way. It's unavoidable. Then again you may find love and an even stronger friendship. Again, you'll never know until you try.

Good luck.

Okay yes I understand that but what about the whole problem of never seeing him again after college?! If it does work out I have the problem of it only lasting 2 years!

Seeing him for two years, with a possibility if it's really special of it carrying on. Or not at all...

You only live once.

Simply because you'll both be in different places doesn't mean you cannot carrying on an existing relationship.

Besides, that's two years off. The future isn't here yet; don't worry about it. If your relationship does, in fact, 'get serious,' then I'm sure you both can work something out.
