Sometimes the problem with being just “one of the guys” is that you get stuck playing the part. Trust me, it’s a lackluster form of role-play removed of eroticism and crazy outfits—no fun! At one point or another, we’ve all had a less-than-platonic thought about our best guy friends. After all, they know you better than most, there’s already a sense of intimacy between you two and you just generally like spending time together, but alas, when feelings for those close sirs ventures into full-fledged crush territory, you run the risk of ruining your friendship altogether, especially if the feelings are unrequited. Luckily, you can bounce back from these more-than-friends feelings and keep your friendship intact with these quit-the-crush tips!
Is it Worth It?
First and foremost, you must ask yourself if the crush is worth jeopardizing a close friendship for. If your BFF just grew out of his awkward phase or underwent a makeover and is looking better than normal, these “feelings” are probably just in your pants, not your heart. If that’s the case then take a step back and remember this is the same fella who burps in your face, and no amount of hair product or acne cream will change that. Once you realize that it’s all physical, the mature self you are will let it go and find someone even hotter to flirt with, someone who doesn’t “dude” you to death and treats you like a lady. Physical attraction is important in a relationship but that can’t be all there is to it. Imagine spilling your guts out then having to tell him the reason for this out-of-the-blue admission is because of his looks…talk about shallow awkwardness—so not worth it!
