While I believe that you should never hold back about how you feel about someone, life's too short to not tell people you care about them... I would be apprehensive about telling a guy friend I have a crush on him. I would need to have a sign from him that he felt the same way.
A while back I told a guy friend I had feelings for him. He didn't feel the same way. Gradually he distanced himself from me and the relationshipddidn't remain the same. He is a good person and backed off to prevent me clinging to false hope.
So before you tell her, be prepared for it to affect your friendship... if she doesn't feel the same way..
I can't be just friends with a guy I have a crush on. It's far too painful. I couldn't bare watching someone I love... love someone else.
So if you tell her it could end the friendship , if you don't , then when she does meet a guy it will be painful for you. So you have to decide which is more painful... she may feel the same way and the only way to know for sure is to be honest about how you feel.
You just have to decide which decision will be more painful. Risking losing her friendship if she doesn't feel the same, or risk having to watch her be with someone else
Don't go thinking you can salvage your friendship. It was doomed the moment you developed feelings. There is no coming back from this. You either progress into a relationship, or the friendship will be destroyed. You may as well take the risk. Its a 50% of the friendship failing if you make a move, its a 100% chance of the friendship failing if you DON'T make a move. You have nothing to lose, but a lot to potentially gain.
I'm 15 - does she know you like her? And are you wanting to be more than friends? As simple as that if you like her, just be straight up with her, tell her, and then ask her if she feels the same way, OR try to find out from her friends if she likes you, then if you know she likes you, go for it, and ask her out. That simple.
At your age you're setting a precedence for all future interactions with the opposite sex. Do nothing and you'll always do nothing. Don't be that guy- mold yourself into your ideal self and learn to take risks.
Ask her out. She'll appreciate anything that you would do to her on a first date and both of you know that you are way too young to drive and get her to places so I hope she'll understand but ask her out and day by day talk about feelings for each other and etc.
