So, ive been friends with this girl for 5 years. She has always been one of my closest friends. We have always been open with our feelings for each other, as in if she didnt like what i did she would tell me, and same goes with me. Two years ago she started drinking and i freaked on her (i was immature but i really liked her and couldnt stand her doing that). She then got mad at me and we werent friends for a year. A few months ago she freaked out on me for dating my ex. I freaked on her and we moved on. However, she has always remained one of my best friends, and i can appreciate all she has done with me. She stays up with me late at night, talks to me when im bored, and lays with me when im tired. Im starting to fall for her, but im afraid of what will happen. I dont want to date her and then have us fall apart, she is far to important. We have already kissed and what not, but im really stuck on this dating part. Does anyone have any advice? Also, i just got out of a relationship, so how long should i wait? Thanks everyone, again.
