Hi, I'm Ashley. I have this long-time friend I've known since I was 11. However, I just recently started liking him. I don't know how to tell him nor do I know how he will react if I did tell him because we've been friends for so long. I really don't know how he would take it or how it's going to affect our friendship. And if I do tell him, I don't know if he's going to continue being my friend. Mostly, I don't want to lose him as a friend.
But how do you decide between a friendship and what your heart yearns for? Is a friendship worth risking for your desires?
What should I do?
