Hello, I wonder if by killing this feeling will be a feasible step here. Sometimes you need to open up to your friend. Have you ever tried telling her all about it? Any romantic relationship must first start with a good and healthy friendship. So there is nothing wrong in it. You've already advanced yourself from a mere friendship. So that old relationship doesn't exist anymore, at least not to you. So you better take your chances to tell her how you feel. But if you really think you need to kill this feeling, you have to be strong. The first thing you need is to stay away from her until the feeling subsides. Don't even see her, don't look at her or even at her picture. Totally isolate yourself away from her. Do it now until it's too late. But even before doing that you should first try to let her know about your feelings for her. Thanks. God bless you.

I think that it is risky if you will tell her how you feel because if she doesn't feel anything for you, she might distance herself. It is really up to you if you can't fight your feelings anymore and instead confront her about it but you should be aware of the consequences. My guy best friend before had feelings for me but i played dumb about it because I just want to stay as his friend and I think it's better that way. I want to keep the friendship itself. Now, he have a girlfriend and he's happy with her. If you really don't want to get hurt then you should limit yourself talking with her but don't make her think that you are avoiding her..

Hi MarElizson, I understand the way you really feel at your heart. But i tell you me and my wife were very best friends and we fell into love. There is nothing wrong, if she also feels the same, then you have beautiful life. Happy Mylotting

That would never happen as my friends are the same gender as me, lol.I do have male friends as well, but to be very honest they are not the kind of people that i would want as a boyfriend.I think that a friendship would be lost if you broke up the relationship with them.
