Original Visitor's Question from a 13-20 year old Female
I'm extremely confused, and thought experts might be able to help. I like two kids. One is my best friend, and I love her with all my heart...and I think this might be one of those I've-fallen-in-love-with-my-best-friend situations. She knows this, and she isn't shying away.
Then there's this boy. He's beautiful, and I've been flirting with him forever, and apparently he likes me back, and I like him so much it's almost hard to believe.
So I'm inbetween two people.
I don't know what to think. Please help.
User Submitted Advice from a 21-30 year old Female
Learn to love
You are still young and it is extremely normal to have feelings for people of both sexes. Once you mature you'll be able to figure out which suites you best.
I am a 20 something female and have my girlfriends that I love to death and would do anything for I've even kissed them. But, my interests are not with the female type beyond friendship - they are with males.
Ironically so, they guy I'm dating is kind and sweet and caring and has a lot of the attributes my very good girlfriends have. But, my attraction to him goes a lot deeper. So don't feel confused and don't feel pressured to date or to have to choose between genders.
Although, from the description you gave I think you're best friend is exactly that - your best friend... if we don't love our friends then they are just aquaintances! She could be more though... but just the way you've worded things I think you're "dating" interest is in the boy.
We learn to love from our friends.
