I Think I Jeopardized a Friendship

I came out to my good friend about a week before i got drunk and ended up telling her my true feelings about her--this was...early January. I just worked with her recently over the weekend and I'm pretty sure I could feel the uneasiness around her. She spoke directly to me about an average of 5 or 6 times during an 8-hour shift; usually she's MUCH more friendly and cheery. It irritated me because she had told me that it was okay and that we should just be best friends because she wasn't into same-sex relationships you know? I am completely and ENTIRELY fine with that because she is an amazing person and I respect her feelings and choices. But, I realized I may have actually jeopardized our friendship. She was always so caring when it came to my feeling miserable and down, and I've shared a lot with her--things I've never told anyone else. I really hate to lose her as a friend because she is the best one I've had in I don't know how many years. :(

Lol I guess. She's warmed up some since, and I recently learned (I think) she has a girlfriend. lmao--the irony...but it's cool either way. I'm happy for her.
