And thereis this girl I really like. She’s my best friend, I asked her even if deep downI was certain, I know what she would say. She’d say “sorry believe me I loveyou, but not in that way”
Now, here'sthe part you need to remember: She is still your friend, and friends care abouteach other. She's not gonna turn into a heartless bitch and throw you under theturtle just because you like her. If she's a really good friend, she'll evenfeel bad about how you feel, and do her best to counsel you and help you getover her.
Here's thesecond important part: There is no better feeling than getting it off yourchest, because then at least you're not alone in your suffering, at leastsomeone knows about it. You're not with her, so what, at least you haveclosure. She'll probably tell her friends, or at least your close mutualfriends, and it will become public knowledge to an extent.
Thirdimportant part: It's not a big deal if people know that you like her. Ifanything, people will respect you more for having the balls to come out aboutit, any friends you have will be sympathetic to you.
Me and herare still friends. Closer than ever before, because neither of us have anysecrets to keep, except for the almost-benefits package. Just don't be a fool,and tell her before she develops an interest in someone else. If she alreadyhas... tell her anyways. If she's really your friend, there's nothing to lose.
