Crushing on a guy is hard enough as it is. Being in love with your best friend? That’s even harder. You know what I’m talking about: you’ve been friends with this dude since you guys were kids and you never saw him as anything more than a buddy… until you realized he’s actually gorgeous and you’re in love with him.
Being in love with your best friend gets super complicated because while you desperately want to take things to the next level in your relationship, you also don’t want to lose that person as a friend. And, as everyone knows, romantic relationships always have the potential to ruin friendships. So what is being in love with your BFF really like? I’ve explained it in GIFs… and I’m sure a lot of you will be able to relate:
Your BFF was always just your goofy BFF.
Until suddenly… you realize you might have a crush on him.
Scratch that. You’re in LOVE.
You keep it to yourself for a while.
Until you HAVE to tell someone.
Ugh. You’re so confused.
Should you tell him? Will it ruin your friendship?
You guys DO flirt all the time.
Wait, but is it real flirting or is he just playing around?
One day you try to tell him, but for whatever reason… you fail.
You can’t tell him.
When he flirts with other girls, it’s like…
When a girl friend of yours tells you she has a crush on him, you’re like…
When someone tells you guys you would make a cute couple, you try to play it off like…
But on the inside, you’re all like…
Sometimes you think he might like you back.
And other times you know he only sees you as a friend.
Basically you’re just confused all the time.
Like, really, really confused.
