He thinks of her as a sister
Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Female
hi. i really like one of my best friends and i tried becoming more closer to him, following your advice, and then after a while, i told him how i felt. he said he only likes me as a sister and that its cool that i like him and acts the same way, which i like. but i dont understand, i know for a fact he likes me because he gave me all the signs to holding my hand, asking me to a dance, said im sweet, coming up to me by himself and just chatting with me alone while his friends are playin basketball, invitin me to hang out with him, and all of this stuff. he even told my other friend that he doesn't think of me as a sister and said im going to get a lot of guys when i get older. Once he told me he didn't, i got my feelings hurt really bad and cried, and i still like him now..im always thinking about him and caring about him, and i truly do love him. i just cant understand how he doesn't like me more than a friend. he is the only guy that makes me feel special and likes me for the way i am and is always there for me..i truly love him and its really scary to say cause im 13 and hes 15. i really want to be with him and he is the only guy thats right for me right now. Any advice would be very well appreciated..thanks
My advice is to play the waiting game with him. Continue to be best friends and enjoy anything that happens beyond that. Sooner or later he will becoome attracted to you as more that a friend, it will just take time.
