Can I Keep Him In the Friend Zone? [Ask Tuffy Luv]
Dear Tuffy Luv,
This boy has told me he likes me and I don’t know what to do…help! He and I have been really close friends for two years now, we get on really well and I like him a lot but I don’t want to go further if our friendship will be ruined and we break up then never talk again.
Our friends won’t shut up about how we should go out but I really don’t know. I’ve had mixed feelings for him for some time now and am hesitant if I should tell him how I feel. Right now I think it would be easier to say nothing and keep the friendship is that the right thing to do?
Girl, you got it. Your heart is telling you something. It’s like, “Pump pump, pump pump, DAMN girl, don’t lose this guy as a friend.” Because, like, clearly you value him more as a friend than you find him interesting as a love connection.
Don’t get pushed into this by your mutual friends. They just want the drama of it all. It’s like way romantic for your friends to hook up and shoop. But they’re not the ones who will have to deal with the fallout. You’re really not clueless at all, Clueless. Sounds to lil’ ol’ Tuffy you know exactly how you feel.
You don’t seem terribly interested him as a romantic partner, but you do sound very interested him as a friend. Listen to your flooping heart.
Hearts & Skulls,
Got a question?! Girl, please. Ask Tuffy Luv. tuffyluvcc [at] gmail [dot] com
