    The next time I see my friend (which will be sometime this upcoming week), I'm going to tell them that I love him. I'm tired of hiding how I feel about him, I'm tired of feeling like I'm lying to him by not telling him.

    I don't care if he's straight, I just want him to know how much I care about him. I'm willing to take the consequences of what happens, because no consequence is worst than how I feel right now, all of these feelings that I have had for a long time kept secret, and chipping away at me.

    Sorry, I just needed to get this off my chest.

    Go for it! You know your friend better than any of us here. If you feel like you should tell him then do it.

    Let us know how it goes. :slight_smile:

    Does he know you're gay?

    Seems like you're ready to confess your feelings for him. Good luck, hon.

    Go for it, I wish you all the best and all the love in the world! Even if it turns out that he doesn't feel the same, you can move on, and I think that's also worth something! Step by step, go for it!

    Just think ahead HOW you are going to tell him this. Some ways are better than others - especially if you want to preserve your friendship with him.

    Sounds great – I hope it goes well!

    Regardless of what you find out, almost anything is better than constantly having to think “what if?” If he feels the same way, that’s wonderful. If not, you will at least have said your peace and can move on – while hopefully remaining friends.

    Wishing you luck!
