I really like my FTM friend. I've known him for 4 years now and he's been there for me through thick and thin. I've been there for him as well. Thing is, I've recently started liking him a LOT. He's in a relationship though so I don't want to mess that up by telling him I like him. I don't wanna put him through even more stress by dropping a bomb on him. Also, even if he and the person he's dating were to split up, I would be really really really unsure about telling him. I'm a 16 year old bisexual female, bi the way (pun intended). I've already talked to a couple of friends about it but they're just telling me to get over it and move on. I can't move on right now! When I like someone, I really like someone. Can I have some help here?
Honesty is always the best path. But keep in mind you can only control your end of a situation - meaning that you can control how you feel, and being honest about it. However the other person responds is beyond your control and not your responsibility. Be honest and then be willing to accept what happens next.
