Is my Best Friend Falling for Me?Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
how would i know if my bestfriend falling in love for me..
First, many friends love each other. That's a normal part of friendship. A friend is someone you can call up at 3am because you're upset, and they'll listen. A friend helps you when your heart is broken. So it'd be normal if your friend loves you and cares about you.
Really, a friend loves you, and a *girlfriend* (or boyfriend) loves you. One of the most important things a girlfriend or boyfriend can be IS your best friend. So a lot of people cross over those lines from one to the other - becoming partners with their best friend, or breaking up with their partner and staying best friends anyway.
So in any case, your best friend probably does care a lot for you and even love you. For many people the only line between that and a 'girlfriend/boyfriend' is the intimate part - do you kiss and so on. Most best friends already hug each other. It could be your best friend wants to get even closer to you. A good way to find out is to slowly escalate and see if your partner responds. So if you don't already hug each other hello/goodbye, start with that first. Then move up to a kiss on the cheek. You should find out pretty quickly if these things are "strange" and your partner pulls back, or if these things are encouraged ...
