I recently went to Prom with my long time crush/friend. However, I am still not sure if he likes me because we have been unable to talk because of our schedules. He told me that he does like me, but that was a while ago. We have so much in common and are even family friends. We are both shy which is making it difficult to move out of my comfort zone. What should I do?
I don’t want to ruin our friendship if he doesn’t like me though…
Friendships moving into relationships can be quite confusing indeed. I am glad that you were able to go to prom with your crush! You must have had a blast.
The reality is when you date a friend it will definetly change your relationship so you have to be prepared for that. Since you are both shy, you probably haven’t had the guts to express your feelings with each other.
However, you have been friends for such a long time that I think it is appropriate for you to open up and let him know how you feel. If he doesn’t feel the same then it will give him the opportunity to be honest with you. However, if he took you to prom and not someone else, I have a hunch that he is probably feeling the same way you are.
Opening up you heart is risky, and you have to be prepared from him to either share your feelings or reject your feelings. Either way I am sure that he will be gentleman enough to be honest with you and not make you feel uncomfortable.
Its really about having the conversation. Love is worth the risk.
