Who here has ever had a big crush on a close friend? What (if anything) did you do about it? What would you recommend in my situation? I have this good friend whom I've known for nearly a year. We met playing sports, and I immediately melted. Just looking at him gave me butterflies (and still does). Physically, he's everything I list as "attractive." And the first few nights we saw each other on the courts, I definitely caught him checking me out. So we started playing on the same teams (up to 3 times a week), and then we ran into each other every weekend out at the bars and we started hanging out. Now we hang out all the time with our mutual friends, in addition to sports throughout the week. I thought my feelings for him would subside after a while, but they continue to linger around. I've never felt this way about a friend. Some times I just want to reach out and hold him and tell him how I feel. However, I feel like telling him would ruin a friendship that I sincerely value. I also know I'm not his type (from what he's discussed). So that's why I ask if anyone has had a similar situation and what they did about it. How did things turn out for you?
