Feelings for good friend
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
I have developed recently, about 5 months ago, feelings for one of my good friends. Within the past 2 or 3 I have started to deeply care about her. I talked to her about it not too long ago and she said she thought of me in that way too, at least some of the time. However she has just gone through some rough stuff in her life, including a tough situation with an ex recently. She says that she doesnt want to go into a relationship in the state she is in and that shes trying to find herself. To this I responded that I understand and made it clear that I care for her and if she figures stuff out and wants to be more than friends to not be afraid to look me up. I really care for her and just want her to be happy, but at the same time I just want to be with her. I guess the questions I am asking are did I do the right thing? And what should I do now?
You did exactly the right thing. And she is wise not wanting to jump into a new relationship "on the rebound." Give her some time, remaining her good friend, and perhaps things will develop.
