Risking Your Friendship for Love

Risking Your Friendship for Love

What kind of relationship are you in? There are many different kinds of relationships such as:

  • Lovers
  • Romantic partners
  • Friendships
  • Friends with benefits

When you are friends with someone, sometimes you find that you want more out of the relationship. Chances are that you have sat around thinking about how you would like to be more than friends with this person.

Situations such as this can be a risk and chances are that you might even ruin a friendship if you tell them how you feel. On the other hand, you could turn a friendship into a romantic relationship or make your friend your lover.

If the situation doesn’t work out how you hoped it would though, your friend could end up shunning you and make the relationship awkward for you and for those that know you.

Do you want to take the chance to ruin a friendship that you enjoy and one that is good?

How can you tell if loving your friend is worth testing the friendship? The truth is, is that it depends on how deeply you feel for this person. Do you care about them and make all of your decisions based on what they would think or what they would want?

Can you imagine losing them as your friend and do you feel that it is worth taking a risk of losing your friendship? Can you bare this situation if you woke up and you couldn’t call them and ask them for advice?

What if you find out that your friend doesn’t feel the same way about you that you feel about them? What are you going to do if you ask them to love you and they don’t?  Once you say what you are feeling, you will never be able to go back to the way things were before, even if they say they like you back.

But, if you have feelings that are very strong and you cannot wait to tell them and you feel that they really need to know, maybe it is worth giving it a try.

If your romantic feelings are returned to you by your friend, what happens next? Taking a risk of asking your friend to love you can be hard but if you feel that it is more important for your friend to know what you are feeling, then tell them and maybe you can have your happy ending.

Be careful about your own feelings and about the feelings of your friend when you choose to tell them. Do not be shocked at any kind of response that they might have because you will never know how it is going to go until you tell them what you are feeling.

Do your best to keep your emotions in check no matter what they tell you and if it is not the answer that you were hoping for, do not cry or yell but stay calm and accept their answer with dignity. You never know how a friendship could go and if you feel the need to tell them that you like them, do it.
