My suggestion is you don't tell him your feelings right now, but say something like, "Hey, we've been friends a long time, what do you think about going out on a date like any other couple?" Say it with a smile on your face and don't back him into a corner. Make it sound more like a good idea, then trapping him into not hurting your feelings. This way, he'll either tell you he doesn't think it's such a good idea or he'll go for the idea and you'll have your answer. If you do go out on a date take it slow and easy and let nature takes it's course. If you tell him how you feel right now you might scare him off and make him so uncomfortable it may take away from a wonderful friendship. Good luck Marcy I disagree with the above answer. I think it would be too forward to say something like that to him because it can make him feel as if you've only been thinking about yourself and been in the friendship with the hope of dating him one day. I think instead you should see how intense your friendship is. If you guys are the total "bff" then you have to think about if it is worth it. I mean, if you guys break up...you wouldn't have just lost a boyfriend...you would have also lost your best friend which can be very hard to handle. If you think you can handle that and that the best thing to do is tell him, then make sure you are in a stable part of a relationship like making sure he's not dealing with something big and same for yourself. Once you figure out that everything is okay, then sit down with him one day and tell him how you feel, how long you've liked him, and how much he means to you. But make sure to include how this friendship you guys have also means a lot to you and that you have never let your feelings affect your advice, comments, actions, etc. for him (unless you have). Also make sure to tell him that you are going to give him time to think about it and whatever he decides is cool by you and that you are going to be there for him no matter what. Goodluck. :)

You can definitely tell you best friend that you have feelings for them and that is why you can't be friends anymore.

As they are your best friend, you may choose to tell them because it is somewhat of a right for you because you guys are best friends. It may seem a bit of a shock from them but you should be truthful to your best friend. You may find out that they have the same feelings for you as well

You sure let the cat out of the bag! Bad choice! You don't tell your girlfriend's best friend you have feelings for her until you split up from your girlfriend. You've put her best friend in a terrible position (even if she doesn't have feelings for you) because now she knows your girlfriend shouldn't be trusting you and she has to decide whether to tell her friend or not. Nice guy! It's a good idea to talk to your girlfriend ASAP and tell her you want to split-up. Both of these girls should kick your butt to the curb!

If you have a best friend, you will automatically know that. A best friend is someone who will always be there no matter what, to make you feel better when your sad. they will actually listen to you when you vent your feelings to them. -Kerry Boo<3

There are many ways you can tell your best friend that you consider them your best friend. Here are some ways you can express your feelings to your friend:Simply, tell them. Give them a call, send them a text, post on their Facebook Wall, and just be honest and open. Tell them straightforward, that you consider them your best friend.You can write them an ecard or e-mail, and in that you can say something along the lines of "Dear John, I really appreciate you being my best friend. I enjoy our friendship."When it's there birthday, you can say the following for example: "Happy Birthday, John! My BFF :)", "Happy Birthday, BFF", or simply "Happy Birthday to my best friend."Those are a few examples of someways you can express your feelings to one of your friend.From my personal experiences, I just simply flat out tell them that I conisder them to be my best friend. I also ask them if it is okay that I feel that way about them and if it is okay to call and consider them my best friend. All those worked, and I am best friends with them.

Only your best friend would know the answer to this.

Exactly how you just put it. If they are upsetting you then you must tell her. Don't be afraid of hurting her feelings as she has clearly hurt your feelings by making the comments.
