Ive had this guy friend named ryan for about 3 years now. we do everything together, and were basically best friends. but just two weeks ago he told me "I cant help it anymore. I have to tell you!" when I asked him what it was he said "Ive been in love with you for two years." And NOW EVERYTHINGS REALLY AWKWARD! I cant imagine being with him like 'that' at all!!! Hes not ugly or anything but it grosses me out to think of him like that! WHAT SHOULD I DO? GIVE HIM A CHANCE OR NO?
So you don't feel like that with him right? I've noticed when this happens with best friends it can go either way. Maybe if you give him a chance then he'll realize he just wants to stay friends or maybe you'll fall in love with him out of chance. You could also tell him that you don't feel that way towards him and just want to remain friends. It kinda depends on what your comfortable doing. If you possibly see something between you two maybe give him a chance, but if you really just want to be friends then see if he agree's. Anyway you should talk to him about it and see how you both feel. Good luck :)
Look, if you really don't feel that way about him, I don't think that you should have to date him. Just sorta try your hardest to keep things the same. I've never been in a situation even remotely like this, so if this doesn't help, I'm sorry. But maybe you'll end up liking him in the end... ?
I totally agree, I hate say it but he really did blow it with his confession.
I believe that your friend Ryan is in what we call "the Friend Zone". As he is in the friend zone, there is no way out unless you return his feelings. Now I'm not telling you to do so but I want you to think how he feels. He's probably hurt that you think of him as only a friend. He probably wants you to tell him truthfully how you feel.
I don'tthink it should make things awkward for you guys. I've had a few people do that to me and just told them the truth and everything went back to normal :P hope everything works out but don't let your friendship go because of this.
