It depends on if you want to pursue a relationship with your friend, and are realistic about what may or may not happen. Any number of people have had great relationships develop with a long term friend. Sometimes the friend does not reciprocate the feelings and you may need space from them for a time until you feel more comfortable around eachother. The friendship, at least on your side, is already altered. If you decide not to tell your friend how you feel, you may feel hurt or resentful when they date other people, or you may evenutually get past your crush. Why does falling in love destroy a friendship? The best kind of love is built on a deep friendship first. How can you love someone and not be a friend? Married couples are always friends first and lovers second.
