My best friend told me today that he has feelings for me.
This morning I woke up with this text "I can't sleep, because the truth is, I can't stop thinking about you. you mean so much to me, I guess what I want to say is I have feelings for you. I know it sounds weird written out. anyways I just miss you so much. tell me if I am crazy."
I have been have had homeroom with this boy since freshman year of high school and have been best friends with him since sophomore year, We are going to different colleges that are on opposite sides of the USA. I am seeing him tomorrow after our longest separation of 5 months. I would be lying if I said haven't had thoughts of us together, and the distance has increased these thoughts. We say "i love you" to each other all the time but I think we are both are confused about what we actually mean. I know I love him but I am not sure if it is more than brotherly love. I deeply afraid of losing him, and if we tried something and it doesn't work out I am not sure if I can handle not having him as a friend.
Have any of you guys dated an old friend? How did it work out? If you guys broke up, how did you guys handle it afterwords? Should we try to date even though the huge distance? I am extremely confused and like some advice.
