It always depends on who you are. I did it like a game of emotional chess. And a taken girl who still Loves another aswell couldn't turn me down so I told her I wouldn't dare break up the beautiful romance they have just for myself and or her sake. I said "he needs you more then I do. Yet you know how much I do." She is my best friend and he is one of her friends and me and him really get along.
hello to enter3020; you may not have to tell the boy how you feel because you should start by finding out his personality and morals first. you may find that his likes and dislikes and morals may not be same as yours. then if you have some things in common; then find some activities in common and you both can go to library or movies; as an example. good luck!
I pulled my crush aside and said "hey I really really like you" and they were ok with it. But if you want to confess it's really nerve-racking. I suggest talking to a teacher or friend/parent. The day I was so nervous I kept getting stomach aches and my teacher pulled me aside and I told her what was so distressing and it really helped. :) good luck.
I was in this position before. My best friend and I started liking each other and then when we broke up we didn't talk to each other at all. Which I didn't like first of all. I really liked the friendship. So take a risk. It could go out successful but it can ruin the friendship. It's unless you really care about the friendship a lot. Go for it
