vocitated replied to your post: Honestly, there’s nothing to lose. Our friendship is strong enough that it wouldn’t ruin it. I guess I just don’t want to be disappointed if it turns out he isn’t. The only thing holding me back is the old and pointless fear of rejection.

Just putting my 2 cents in - anon, trust me the fear of rejection is much worse than the real thing. It’s actually not that big of a deal. I’ve dealt with it a few times, and it’s almost a relief. Either way, it allows you to move forward. Go for it!
