I love a girl that I cannot have, my best friend.

(I'm a guy, she is a girl) My best friend (I will call melissa) and I have known eachother for 4 years but we have only been close for about 3 years. When melissa and I first got close, I had started to like her, a lot. She was beautiful and sweet, and was so much fun to be around. You see we volunteered at a summer camp together as camp counsellors. Over the years I became her best friend and she became mine. Last summer, we got really really close, like we told eachother things that we have told nobody else. We opened up to eachother about our past of being sexually assaulted, and really we just connected about so much. I fell for her more over the past summer than any previous summer. It didn't help that she ended up saying I love you to me a few times, also mentioning I'm like a brother to her. Every time we hugged though, everything felt perfect, like she is the only girl who could ever make me truly feel happy in my life. Part of me wants to tell her that I am in love with her, but I woudn't risk losing the friendship that I have with her for the world.

I love you Melissa.

  • Go ahead and tell her how you feel. If she rejects you then get over it. Love is a temporary emotion and in time you'll get over it. Stop whining and tell her and prepare for rejection or acceptance. Continuing to spend time with someone who doesn't love you back is a waste of your time and theirs.

  • If you can't have her and you know for a fact you can't have her then give it up. Don't say you can't because you can. Give yourself time to get over and find someone else to date.
