I've resisted dating my best friend for about a year and a half. She's in love with me and has wanted to be with me. We're best friends and have done everything together, including being sexual partners. She graduated a year ahead of me, and we still saw each other over the summer and I happened to intern in the same city she lived over the fall, so we saw each other every weekend.
I haven't been able to commit. I think it's because I haven't had many women in my life and wanted that. Like I wanted to not settle down. She started dating this guy two weeks ago and it really bothered me. I missed her so much and couldn't stop envisioning them having sex. A few days ago the guy called it off. Since then this girl has said she wants to avoid the physical and emotion part of the friendship to avoid getting attached to me again.
I'm starting to have regrets. Should I go for it and date her? I'm afraid if I don't I'll have missed my chance for good. I also worry if I don't I'll never find what I'm looking for anyway, and I don't know exactly what that is. Our relationship is exactly like Love, Rosie, if you've seen that movie. But I still have it in the back of my mind that there might be something better out there.
I need some help

Apparently you werent listening. She's not interested anymore. You squandered your chance. Let her go and don't make the same mistake with the next girl you like who's interested.1

There is always the possibility of there being something better over the next hill. When you fall in love, you won't care about that. If you don't try this, you will regret it for the rest of your life. Go for it!0
