Yeah, that sounds like a tough situation. Personally, I think you probably shocked the poor guy! My personal advice to to not text him or try to get in contact with him at this point anymore. If he is not responding, it may be for one or more reasons. He may need time to think about what you said to him - to evaluate whether he has the same feelings for you or not. Or, he may be afraid because he doesn't like you that way and he didn't know until you just told him. Either way, continuing to try to contact him will probably push him away until he can get in touch with his feelings regarding the whole thing. If he doesn't like you in that way, it may be safe for you to ask him in the future after he has had enough time to process the whole situation, and then he can tell you that. If he does like you, he may be thinking about how to handle the relationship shifting from friends to a romantic relationship with you. (Sometimes us guys take a while to figure things out!) Personally, I think you probably blew him out of the water - especially after 6 years of hanging out with you! FYI, when you tell a person that you like them in that way, it doesn't matter if you apologize a thousand times, because how they see you will immediately change, and they will never see you the same way - this could be good or bad. At any rate, he may be confused or maybe hurt or angry or something, but I would wait a while before trying to bring it up again to him. In the mean time, you can think about what you will say to him in the future. Don't apologize to him again regarding it, however. You do not have to apologize for liking someone, even if they do not like you back. It's not something you did wrong. In fact, it should be flattering when someone tells someone else that they like them. Just be yourself in the whole situation.
