8 Tips On How To Deal When You Have A Crush On Your Best Girl Friend

When you have a very close friendship with someone, it’s only normal to start to develop deeper feelings for them at some point – even when that someone is the same sex as you are. Best friendships very often turn into something more, because it’s easy to feel physically and sexually attracted to someone who you can talk to and spend a lot of time with.

But, admittedly, things do get a little bit more confusing when you’re a girl who develops a crush on her best girl friend… especially if you’ve never had feelings for another girl before. Even if you have, it’s still an awkward position to be in. So, what are you supposed to do if you find yourself wanting to take things to the next level with your bestie? Here are 8 tips on how to deal when you have a crush on your best girl friend.

    I have a REAL problem. I have a crush on my best friend, and I sort of want to tell her, but I don’t know how. I don’t want advice on how to figure out my sexuality, as I already know that I am lesbian. I know that LGBT+ relationships don’t quite fit into this category, but I can’t find any better places to say this. PLEASE HELP!!!

    I have a friend, and I really honestly love her, like I would die for her. but me and her are cosplayers and do fanservice, so the issue only gets worse for me… and I recently developed a crush on her, I haven’t been able to tell her because I back down every time. Also, she says she has a crush on a guy, but I have known her for 7 years and I can kind of tell something is off, like she doesn’t have a crush on him or something like that and is possibly trying to cover something up. But one thing that makes it worse is that me and her call each other ‘bab’, ‘bby’, ‘senpai’, and even sometimes send each other pick up lines >.< which kills me because she slays at coming up with them. Another thing is that because we have known each other for so long and combined with the whole 'fanservice' thing, my friends decided to 'ship' us. This whole issue is honestly making me so stressed and I don't know what to do. I don't want to ask her because I don't want to make our friendship awkward, but I do know she is a supporter of the lesbian/gay community and would probably never leave my side. I think. This article did help a lot, but I'm just too shy to ask her, I just need advise, so if anyone has any please reply to my comment. thanks <3

    Also if you reply does it send an email to my account because my parents can read my emails and I would not feel comfortable with them knowing I like a girl

    Hi I’m a high functioning sociopath ( I suggest looking it up if you don’t know what it means) and (obviously) I’m asexual. I just started at a new school and I met this girl and I’ve only known her for a month but I think I’m in love with her… I’m kind of scared because I’ve never experienced such strong emotions. I haven’t told her and I don’t want to tell my parents because they would not agree and I feel uncomfortable talking to anyone about this. Please help

      I understand, well the whole family thing at least. Maybe try slightly ‘flirting’ with her after becoming her friend, well its a year from now so hopefully something happened. good luck! <3

    Developing feelings for a friendyou really like can be hard, especially if they have a boyfriend (as she did in my case). My heart would flutter every time she entered the room- it was a bit scary. I haven’t said anything yet, but hey, you never know.

    Could you write an article from the opposite point of view aswell? I think my friend has a girl crush on me and I don’t know what to do.
