How do i tell my best friend I am gay(in the girl kinda way)?

I think watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer triggered it yeah know (Willow and Tara.) Well I think i like my best friend and i am scared she will be grossed out.

If you think that you are a lesbian, just because you watched a TV show where there were characters who were lesbians, then odds are you are probably just going through a phase. I'd wait a bit longer and see how you feel after a few months.

Other than that - baby steps. I'd start with just telling her that you think you are a lesbian, and see how that goes. If you are pretty sure that she is straight though, then you should probably keep your feelings about her to yourself, at least until you are sure that she is supportive of your choices.

You need to tell your friend that there is something you would really want to share and it is personal because you trust him and care for him deeply as a friend. First, it would be best if you make sure you give him the heads-up in a twisted manner so that he may take time to think about it.

That show was excellent, and Willow and Tara had a beautiful relationship. It could be that you just naturally want a relationship like that but aren't truly gay, since it came on this way. I think you should not tell her and just see where your feelings go naturally.

My best friend is bi so I understand. One day she asked me what I thought about gays and I told her I supported them. The next day she told me that she was bi and I was really happy that she trusted me so much to tell me that. I was the first person she told and now everyone knows. I think you should start out by telling your friend that you're gay. Then see how she reacts. If she is happy for you, then that's good. And if she isn't, then maybe she isn't a good friend and you shouldn't tell her about liking her. I think that if you wanna tell her then go for it, but I just want you to know that it might make the relationship awkward. My best friend I was talking about before has a crush on my friend. My friend found and thinks it's cute and not awkward at all. So you never know :) good luck

You can like your friend on tht way without it getting serious. I know a few of my friends who think I'm cute but not like the "I want to make out with you" kinda way. It is possible that your going through a small phase of you teenage life. With all those hormones and all.
