My best friend and I have been friends ever since we were little, and I had a few little crushes on him throughout the years. However, it got worse when we were in high school. I really liked him, but I was always too afraid to say anything. Now that I'm older, and still carrying a torch for the guy, I know that I need to tell him. But I'm worried about how he'll react. I mean I don't really know how he feels because he's the type that is a little distanced from his feelings- he's guarded. We've been friends for a long time, and we've been through a lot together. He's never once left me, he's always there when I need him. So, I don't want to lose him because of some romantic notion that he may not share. What do y'all think? Would you freak out if your friend told you she had feelings for you?

On the instant when my friend tells me she has feelings - yes, I would freak out temporarily. It has happened to me twice. Both time I was speechless. I couldn't accept because I had emotional attachment but wasn't attracted physically. Both time both girls understood and we went back to normal. Eventually one drifted apart.
Also, part of the reason I reacted like that was, a 3rd friend. 3rd friend and I were close and I had crush on her. So I couldn't. If I didn't have crush on 3rd friend I would've at least given one of those 2 friends a chance.
So, make sure that he doesn't have crush on anyone. Not just physical attraction but emotionally attraction.
Good luck :)0
