In love with my best friend

I love you. I always have and I always will. But I just wish you would open your eyes and realize it for yourself!!!

So obviously, I have feelings for my best friend. But I can't tell him because I don't know if he sees me like that at all!
It all started my freshman year of high school. We became friends within the first week and quickly became closer. I remember my mom would always tell me how she knew we had potential together and we would move on to greater things ("mother's intuition" is what he calls it). Back then I though she was crazy. We were just friends! But now that I'm older, I hate to admit that she was right - I have develope feelings for him.
But it sucks because he always comes to me when he's having girl issues and wants my opunion on what he should do and I jut want to tell him to pick ME. To love ME. Because l won't ever hurt him and cause him all the stress that every other girl he's been with has done to him. This all happened within the last couple years.

Recently, we've had a couple of makeout sessions, and afterwards I knew he was the one. But the thing is, he's an a****** to other girls and I don't want to be the next one he just screws over. I see ourselves with a future together but I can't tell him how I really feel. And I just don't know what to do - wait it out until he matures a little bit, or just jump and tell him.
It's all just really frustrating and stupid. It's about time he sees that I've always been there for him and I always will be.

  • Wait. Wait it out for a while. If you do love hiom as you think and say you do, you've potentially got a long future together - jumping the gun could be a mistake.

    I say this from experience. I'm now married to a long-time friend who is the love of my life and for whom I long had a soft spot...(that would often get hard). The timing wasn't right a few years ago and it's such a good thing that I (we) waited before letting each other know how we truely felt. enjoy the friendship. I know it's hard now, but it might be worth it in the long run.
    Good luck
