Recently, I've been thinking of asking my friend out on a date but I'm concerned by the fact that it very well might not work out and then we become distant.
Earlier this year a similar thing happened with someone different and we did date for a while. But then it all kind of fell apart and now we're no we're near as close, I kind of liked having the ability to chose if I wanted to date them or not.
Now I just feel a little sad when I think of her in that way, is it worth it?

Yeah it is worth it. Years of sexual tension is not good either. And part of you will probably always wonder "what if" or you will continuously hope that she will somehow "come around" and fall into your arms. That is a story that only happens in the movies. You are really young and whether you like it or not, you probably won't be friends with any of the friends you have now in 10 years. Maybe just one or two, but anyway that's not the point. People end up regretting the things they didn't do, not the things they did do. Ask her out. She might say yes. Amazing! She might say no, if she does, it's not the end of the world. You might still have a lasting friendship (This happened to me) or you might just drift away. Both outcomes are better than you kicking yourself in your 40s because you didn't have the courage to go for what you really wanted.0
