Like I said, I think I'm in love with one of my friends. He's single, and has been for nearly 8 years now (Since he was in 9th grade from what I understand) because he spends all of his free time with his best friend, a blood cancer patient.
He has never directly said it, but I'm pretty sure that he has chosen to be alone so he can be there for his friend. He's the best person I know, and I know that he's always going to put his friend before himself. It's because of that that I worry about asking him out. I want to be there for him, and I'm ok with him not having a lot of time for me, but I really have to wonder if he would even give us a chance.
Please, if you have any thoughts, I could really use some advice.

I'm kind of torn on this one. I understand him, wanting to be there for his friend what you should probably do is find a way to integrate yourself in that manner, sure ask him out, but don't take away from his friend. That's the worst thing you could possibly do. If you really love him and he really likes you or love you. It may work. But he may not have a lot of time for you. I wouldn't expect that anyway.1

This Sticky Situation could get quite Intricate and Complicated, And it is almost like a Man or a Woman who is single and who have baggage that will Always... Be there for them First.
For now, Be there for him. Be supportive, But do not Put your own Heart on your Sleeve. This way you are not in for a let down.
It seems to me he is in a Set lifestyle, Has a Set pattern of what he is used to now, And any change could be Not in his Best Interest or Yours, So go Slow with Joe and just feel it out and let God lead you in the Direction that may be right for you, Whether it is him in the End or Another... Friend.
Good luck and my blessings to both of you. xx0
