Okay so I wrote a letter to my crush, who also happens to be my best friend, but I don't have the guts to give it to him. So I thought I would post it on here, and get some advice. Yes I know, it's very sappy and romantic - I've liked him for a while now so I think I deserve to get a little emotional.
Dear [insert name here],
There's something that I need to tell you, and I'd like to do it in person but I'm not brave enough to. Maybe it's the fear of rejection or not wanting to see your reaction when I say it, so I'll tell you in a letter.
So, we've been best friends for more than 5 years now and we've always been teased about "secretly dating" and it's never really bothered me. And it still doesn't bother me, but there's a little part of me that wishes it was true. I think we'd be perfect together, because we know each other inside out, five years of being your best friend has taught me everything I need to know to keep you happy. I can order for you at a restaurant, I can pick out books for you, I can look at you and know exactly what you're thinking.
***Sparklers: WARNING, THIS IS WHERE IT GETS SAPPY***
Seeing you at school everyday makes my day, all I need is one of your dazzling smiles and the day is instantly better. Every time you give me a hug, I feel protected and loved. Every time you come to me because you need someone to talk to, I feel trusted. Every time you tell me how much you love me, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. And I know that this is all because of the amazing friendship we have, but I feel like it's time to move it along.
But, if you don't feel the same way, it's okay. I'll get over it, but I don't want to lose our friendship over this, so please don't take it the wrong way.
Lots of Love,
Dee [my name]
GOSH, I SOUND SO DESPERATE AND LOVELORN. BUT I'VE LIKED HIM FOREVER, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO! HELP MEEEEE!
