Back story:
Me and my best friend have been friends for over 12 years and have been best friends for a lot of that time.  In the past few years, we have gotten so close and are basically inseparable most of the time.  We do everything together.  Over the last few months, my feelings for him have expanded and it became obvious to me that I was in love with him.

I decided to keep this to myself as I did not want to negatively impact our friendship which means so much to me.  It seemed to me that it wasn't worth risking the friendship since I didn't get the feeling that he felt the same way.  However, these feelings became so overwhelming and I decided that I needed to say something.  Not only to alleviate the pressure of these feelings but because our friendship was and has always been based on openness and honesty and we tell each other everything.  So I told him and to my surprise, he actually told me that he felt the same way.  I couldn't be happier, but now we need to figure out how to take this relationship to the next level.  He hasn't been in a relationship the entire time I have known him and I don't want to put too much pressure on him for that reason.

My question is: how do we proceed?  Does anyone have any advice for us?  Anyone else been through a similar situation?

Thank you!  Wishing you all the best :)

Hello! Although I am still young and all that, I did fall in love with who I considered to be my best friend. I think the most important part of a relationship is communication and having that best friend bond with each other beforehand makes it all the easier to talk and discuss what makes you comfortable and uncomfortable. In the end it's definitely up to what you two decide to do and how you guys want to steer the relationship. It's good to discover who you two are in a relationship and how you both feel. I think that it's already great that you both are open and honest, those are very important in communication! I hope this helps, and I do wish you both a great relationship!
