We have such a great friendship, which I dont want to ruin. But we are so close, that I can't help but want to be his girlfriend.

A lot of people say not to date co-workers. In some companies it's even against the rules (although I don't know if they can legally enforce it).
I don't agree though. I think it's fine, *IF* you can keep things professional at work, and not let relationship problems at home become problems at work.
Just keep it mature, and keep things professional. Or another way of putting it, is that other co-workers should never even notice it, as if the two of you are like any other co-workers.1

It's Never quite wise to Date within the Wall and All of your Work place, @JaneDoe1213... Should Something go Sour, then it could end up to be Awkward Before the door closes at Five.
However, for now, stay put and Continue your 'Great friendship' that you Both have established. And if things look like they are going in another direction, perhaps Getting on the same Page so hopefully no future Rage, in case a Sour ball in one's Mouth could cause this Relationship to Go South.
Life is a gamble in any event. I would just leave it in Mother Nature's hands as you Both Nurse and Nurture Something Special.
Good luck. xx0
