Am I In Love With My Best Friend Or Not?

Published: November 07, 2020
Dear TeenHealthFX,
dear TeenhealthFX im a 14 year old girl, and i get the feeling i'm in love with one of my best friends but i don't know if i am. I feel like i want to be in love with him so all these tests dont work. but i feel like if i'd tell him, he'd avoid me. and i need him to much as a friend to give it up for this, and i also feel he needs me as a friend and i don't want to hurt him. am i in love or not, i don't know anymore at this point.

Dear Am I In Love With My Best Friend Or Not? ,

TeenHealthFX understands how hard of a situation this is. Believe it or not, thinking you are in love with your best friend happens a lot. At times, it can be hard to tell if you are “in love” with someone because in general we tend to love anyone we care about even if just as a friend. There is no definite answer because everyone feels love differently.

Keeping in mind how important your friendship is, we suggest just going with the flow for now. Enjoy being each other’s friend and being there for each other. Time will eventually tell if you both have more than friend feelings for each other.

We hope this helps!
