To Tell Or Not To Tell?

I don't know who to talk to about my crush on my best friend. I have never thought that I would like this guy. I've known him for half my life, but recently within the last couple years gotten closer to him. Now, I find that I really like him. I can be myself around him and he always makes me laugh. I'm so happy when I'm with him. I'm scared to tell him how I feel. But I'm also afraid of regretting not telling him how I feel. I don't know if it is rejection that I am afraid of. I don't know what to do. I feel like I'm in high school all over again crushing on a guy. High school was 10years ago.

I don't know how he feels. I don't even know if he's ever thought of me more than a friend. We've known each other for so many years. Another thing that is possibly holding me back is that he dated my best friend.. But that was in 8th grade. We were 13-14 then. I probably shouldn't worry about that, right?

I really cannot stop thinking about him. But I can't seem to find the courage to tell him.... Plus, I'm moving out of state in 3 months for 2 years. This would be a bad time to tell him I have feelings for him, right? I mean, what could possibly come out of a long distance relationship? Oh my... There's so many obstacles. So many things to think about before I can think about telling him. What can I do???

you should dare yourself...and tell what if you get rejected he will probably let you down easily because your close...and there are many other people out there...and plus you get confidence from even getting the guts to ask him...take a dare...

Well...I think you should tell him, because if you look at it like this: You're leaving pretty soon. So this could be beneficial IF he rejects you because then you have 2 years to sort your life out. You've only got one life, and you never know til you try. And you don't want to be stuck on him if he's never going to feel the same way, so you might as well get it out in the open while you can. Best of luck!!! GO GET EM! :)
