great way to ask

after you two are really close and you feel you should say something heres a great way to say it

casually when both of you are relatively alone ask them

Do you ever think we could be more then friends? make sure this is all casual and then if she asks why say your curouis what they think.. then hopefully they will respond with a yes and from there you can say iv been developing feelings blah blah this is great cause if she does say no you can brush it off alot easier and not damage ur friendship
