I don't know your friend, so I can't honestly say what might happen. I do know, though, that me and my best friend are in love. He's been my dearest friend since the second grade, and now he's my boyfriend. We were just discussing this, actually.....well, anyway, he went out on a limb when he asked me out. Poor boy was dead nervous, and Lord knows I didn't have the courage to ask him. My advice, the best I can give, is don't push her. She probably likes you like that, or at least that's what I think, but is too scared to admit it. I tried blocking my feelings, but it didn't work. I was as bad off as you, and so was mi amor. Also, continue to treat her like your friend. Even if nothing happens for a while, being a friend is what a girl needs, and if you can fulfill that role, then you're well off. Good luck!
