DEAR DEIDRE: I AM in love with my best friend but I can’t tell him as I don’t want to ruin our friendship
I’ve known him since we were at primary school. We live in the same village and we did everything together growing up.
I am a 16-year-old guy. Things have changed just recently and I have begun to see him differently.
I know he is probably straight as he’s had a couple of girlfriends. It is hard for me to keep my feelings to myself but I risk ruining everything if I tell him how I feel.
He probably wouldn’t want to talk to me or spend time with me ever again. What should I do?
DEIDRE SAYS: Perhaps you could reach out to another friend you trust and talk to them about how you feel, before you decide whether to tell him.
You could also try to widen your friendship circle to give yourself some space from the situation.
