Dear M Girl,
I need some help. My friend Mike and I have been best friends since the 1st grade. We pretty much grew up together. He once said he thought he had a crush on me but then he stopped. Now that we're in 8th grade I feel like my feelings for him are changing too. I'm not sure if I have a real crush on him now. What should I do? Should I just hide it because I don't want to ruin our friendship.
I completely understand where your coming from - been there! It's a hard place to be because you're not sure if you guys are better off just as friends or more. My advice to you is to talk to him about it! What if he's feeling the same way right now but is just to scared to bring it up like you are? Once you guys talk about these new feelings, things will get much more clear. You guys may try dating or just remain really great friends. Just remember you've been best friends for many years so a quick talk about this should not ruin your friendship. Good luck!
