Cupid’s Advice:

It can be frustrating when you have feelings for a close friend. How do you tell them? What happens if they don’t feel the same way? More importantly, how do you end up staying friends? Talk about anxiety! Cupid has some advice on ways to get a long-time friend to recognize their feelings for you:

1. It’s the little things: In this case, it’s the little things that can take you a long way. Pointing out these things the two of you do for each other may make your friend think. Maybe, you are stuck doing a double shift and your friend brings food without you asking. While that is being a good friend, it is also thoughtful and shows that your friend went out of their way to make sure you were okay. Reminding each other of the little things could help the lightbulb go off.

2. What if?: The easiest thing you can do is the “what if” game. There are so many questions to ask but the obvious one would be, “What if we dated?” Remember, this question could go either way so be prepared. This casual, fun way to bring up a relationship will get you an indication on how your friend feels.

3. Say it!: Flat out asking your friend is a sure way of getting an answer. Sometimes beating around the bush not only can make you even more anxious but can be frustrating if your friend isn’t catching on. As scared as you are, telling your friend how you feel will relieve all the built up feelings you have. No matter what, you will always have your friend so just relax and speak your mind.
