In love with my best friend

I try to convince myself that it's not true... but I've fallen head over heels in love with my best friend. I've felt like this for almost a year. We spend all our time together, we love the same things, laugh together, get sad together. We're both in relationships.Every time I see him I want to tell him how much I love him, but I know I can't. Sometimes I think I should tell him how I feel. Or someone else, just to get it off my chest. I'm scared that if I break up with my boyfriend there will be nothing stopping me telling him.The only thing that helps the pain of not being able to be with him in the way I want is the idea of losing him as my best friend.

  • I think you are a very selfish person for not already breaking up with your boyfriebd. If you love someone else, the person who is with you thinks you love them, and they will be hurt more, if you are a dishonest b****. Please don't be a b**** and break up with your boyfriend so that he can meet a girl who will love him.

  • My boyfriend is suffering from depression and his mum is dying. He has self harmed a lot in the past and I have been putting all my energy in to trying to get him to stop and see a counsellor. We have been together for five years and I care about him more than anything and have tried as hard as I can to support him. But he is emotionally unavailable because of his illness. I can't help my feelings for my friend, but I've tried to do the right thing by my boyfriend because he is suffering.

    I feel guilty enough as it is; I don't need you to judge me as well.

  • I think if you are best friends he can handle hearing how you feel. Tell him exactly what you think and tell him to do the same, if he doesn't have mutual feelings then at least you don't have to keep worrying. On the other hand you might want to wait a bit longer until he is single because you just might break his girlfriends heart. There is a reason they are together.
