ASK JILL: I am in love with my best friend!
OMG, I am in love with my best friend. I’ve known him for years and I realize I like him, but I don’t know how he is going to take it if I tell him. What should I do or say?
Well you first need to consider what is more important, your friendship with this guy or the possibility to be his girlfriend. Depending on how young you are, I would suggest keeping things low key and having fun being friends. If you are at that age where you are allowed to date and it’s appropriate, honesty is the best policy. You can find a creative way to tell him without freaking him out. Don’t come on too strong. Perhaps write him a note explaining if he doesn’t feel the same way, that you are mature enough to continue being just friends!
