It is a good idea to tell him how you feel.
This is what will help you move forward regardless of what he says in response.
I know that it may be scary to do this.
You may feel like you don’t want to put yourself out there and possibly make yourself vulnerable.
You may even be worried that you will jeopardize the relationship you have with him right now if you were to tell him.
The truth is, you have to get this done.
The longer you wait, the harder it will be to do.
He may feel the same way you do or he may not. However, you wouldn’t know unless you let him know how you feel.
Someone has to make the first step and be bold.
This is what makes relationships happen. They are risky.
They require a person to open up and put themselves in a relatively vulnerable position.
This has to be done.
You will have to make that step and do what needs to be done.
If you were to continue hiding your feelings, you will keep wondering how he feels about you.
You may begin to make assumptions about how he truly feels.
You may assume that he must feel the same way you do when in fact he may not.
This could make you act a certain way around him.
You may think that you are actually in a romantic relationship with him when you aren’t.
This can completely confuse you and mess with your emotions.
The sooner you know where you stand, the better.
Telling him how you feel doesn’t mean that you will jeopardize your relationship with him.
If he is a good friend of yours, there is a good chance that you will remain friends.
You will be able to have new experiences together as friends regardless of what was revealed.
The good thing about doing this is that you would have an even better friendship because there would be no more hiding.
There is no more constant worry and no more misinterpretation of something he may have said or done.
The relationship becomes a lot more honest because nothing is being hidden anymore.
Letting him know how you feel will make you go about your life a lot easier.
You won’t be constantly worried about your relationship with him and whether it could possibly be headed towards romance.
You would already know if it were because he would have given you his answer.
This is so much better than being in the dark wondering if he feels the same way about you as you do for him.
When you let him know how you feel, you put it all out there in the open.
Even if you may be afraid of what his response would be, you should understand that this is how you allow yourself to move forward regardless of what he says.
You don’t have to continue worrying, doubting or being misguided about the kind of relationship you currently have.
The sooner you let it be known about how you feel, the quicker you will learn whether this relationship is worth pursuing.
