If you’re crushing on a friend, let him know–if nothing else, he’ll be totally flattered that someone so amazing would be interested in him!
How should you tell him? Actions usually speak louder than words. Touch his arm when you guys talk, hug for a little longer than usual, sit closer to him… These will all get him more comfortable with the idea of being affectionate with you, and things may happen pretty organically from there.
If you’ve dropped hints and he’s still not picking up on ’em (not all guys are good at that!), just tell him privately when you’re alone: “I like you.” Don’t profess your undying love and devotion, don’t make it big and dramatic–you’ll only freak him out and scare him off. Keep it simple and light and see how he reacts. Bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised–and if not, it’s so much better to know how he feels than to live in the friend zone limbo forever!
