Anonymous asked: I really like one of my best friends, and I want to tell her, but I'm just not sure if it's a good time. I wanted to tell her a while ago, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Now that I think I can handle it, she has this huge crush on someone she met a couple weeks ago. I don't want to stress her out by telling her right now, and I definitely don't want to lose her as a friend if she doesn't feel the same way. I'm just worried that if I do have a chance, it might be too late soon. Help?
First off, I’m really happy you’re not pulling the “friend-zone” card as many would in this situation. That renders you a genuinely good human being.
Though she may have a crush on someone right now, keep in mind that crushes are often temporary. Also keep in mind that, no matter what, it is never too late to tell her how you feel. By telling her how you feel while she has this crush going on would put the both of you on unstable friendship grounds, but sometimes that is the best way to put the strength of a friendship to the test.
My ultimate view on this is that you should tell her that you like her, but also make it clear that you’d like to stay friends if she doesn’t return your feelings. Make sure she knows you’ve got her back when it comes to relationships, too, because she is your friend. Keep your own well-being in mind as well, this is a matter of personal judgement. I’m just here to offer a second opinion, what I write is never law.
