OKOKOK sorry for commenting twice but I wanna talk about this girl. My best friend introduced me to her and we have lots of classes together and are really friendly. She's very nice to everyone and is always playing around and hugging people and stuff. Today, we had a small school dance and everyone basically went to it. She was dancing like crazy and eventually got me dancing too (she is like the def of "life of the party." she just lights up the whole room by smiling). We were dancing with each other to "call me maybe" and jumping around. after we sang the line "so call me maybe!" at the end of the chours, she laughed "maybe i will!" SO LIKE???? WAS SHE FLIRTING WITH ME?? SHE IS BISEXUAL... idk- BUT LIKE??? and we were doing the dance to "cotton eye joe" where you link arms and dance in a circle then switch arms and stuff (called a round dance?) and we were both laughing and it was so fun i was so happy. she also accidently held my hand in the dnce place and we both laughed rlly nervously and embarassed so idk if she's just being her friendly self or if she likes me back. :/ rip, anyways ima go tell my friend who introduced me to my crush and freak out

Ooooo just remembered something quite funny, and I think it will be relatable for the people taking this quizz.
So I was putting chapstick on bc I have some mother-🌻 dry lips all the time, and she was in the room, she looked at me and sniffing the air, she bluntly told me that she didn't like the smell of my chapstick, I acted sad (was in denial back there but was truly sad I think, because what she thought of me mattered, (matter, stop the denial girrrl)) I played around, still in denial, kinda faking sobs and all and she 🌻 said ; "why does it matter anyway, it's not like I was going to kiss you'' And I stood there. I don't remember how I brushed it up so It shows how much I was panicking. Now I think I really started to question myself at that point. Should I change chapstick tho ? Oh no I'm just embarrassing myself at that point

Alright so first ; English is not my mother tongue so sorry if the phrasing is weird.

I am kinda confused right now, I've thought a lot about the possibility that I might have a Crush on my friend, I think of her as one of my best friend, but it does not feel like how I feel about one of my other best friend ; I find the 2nd very cool and snarky, and like cute in some ways (when she talks about her crush she has that very cute smile, it makes me wanna rub her hair, and she is the epitome of cool, like she has muscles. If I had to fight for her, i would, even tho I would get demolished).

But the 1st one It feels a bit different, she is a bit lanky and I've never thought of her as magnificent, but she's def cute. She makes me kind of crave contact ? When we do sleepover, I wanna sleep next to her so bad... But never acted on it because I feel it would be weird and I don't want to be a creep.
She likes head massage and like I've done it a few times for her and no matter how greasy or full of dandruff my fingers would get, I didn't stop until I had to (mostly hand cramps). She's cool and I think about her not everyday but close (not in the same school).
When she got a Boyfriend, I didn't felt sad, just a bit jealous ? I am not sure about this one, when they broke up, I felt a bit happy I think.
When she texts me I immediately smile and I laugh a lot at her texts. But I don't think sexually of her, I've thought about the possibility of being ace tho, I'm not sure I would like to kiss her but cuddle would be great.

And it makes me wonder ; Am I a possessive friend, or just crushing over my friend ? ( For the end of the story, even tho she's bi she hasn't shown interest in me (at least I don't think so), but I know that even if she was interested she would never act on it, kinda like me.)
So having written all that, I'll give myself some time, and try to not ruin the friendship. It being a crush seems more like a probability that before I wrote all of that.
I am a bit worried she could find that text but hey, if she finds it on that particular quizz I might have a chance heh ?

Oh... Um... Well... I took this quiz cause I sort of think I like my friend. But... It's complicated. She has sort of already admitted that she might like me. It seems perfect, right? Except the fact we have only met online. Yep. And... Well, even before this I was questioning my sexuality... but what if I'm wrong? What if I don't really like her? I'm just confused. And worried. And I think I really like her. I don't know why I wrote this comment, but I did.

so i met this girl in english class on the first day of school. i immediately thought she was cute. she sat at the same table as me and made funny jokes. we started to become friends and i downloaded snapchat just so we could snap each other ive never had social media before lol my parents are super strict. anyways, we would snap everyday 24/7 sit together at lunch everyday we’d facetime etc. she even started working at my job with me; a pizzeria. but she had to leave cuz her mom wanted her to focus on grades :(
anyways she always says she loves me and made me a whole romantic playlist and hugs me all the time and wants to cuddle and watch scary movies. we’re both bi lol. she’s so pretty with her green eyes and light brown hair. and i think one time she even tried to kiss me. we were in the bathroom at school and she was walking ahead of me and i said as joke ‘why’re you leaving me? you’re so mean’ and she turned back to me and put both of her hands on my face and said she would never be mean to me she loves me. but my anxiety kicked in and i panicked and just ran into the stall :/
idk what to do tho bc it seems like she doesn’t like me as much as she used to a few months ago. i used to be her lockscreen and now it’s some guys drawstrings over his thingy. i wanna tell her i have a crush on her but i’m scared. everyone tells me she has a crush on me and most ppl think we’re dating. we plan on being roommates together after high school and sleep in the same bed which seems pretty gay to me lol but i’m still not sure if she has a crush on me. i wanna be with her so bad

i have met this girl last spring (another friend introduced us) and at first, we didnt seem to like each other that much for some reason but when that specific friend started body shaming her, we both dropped her and it was just me and her. we became closer over time and i consider her as my best friend. i have never met someone i can fully be myself around without judgement in my entire life. i never really figured i had ¨feelings for her¨ until i started making up random scenarios of us and i started to think she was kind of beautiful. i also started to feel really attached to her like i would lay my head on her shoulder (she would do it back to me) and i felt so peaceful that we literally fell asleep on each undefinedothers shoulders lmao. but idk its just the way she looks at me and her smell and the way she touches my hand and thigh just makes me feel something but idk what. i am straight and i have been straight my entire life until i met her. we share hoodie and clothes and we hug each other A LOT. i also always say that i love her when we are about to go home from our bus stop and she would say it back and we would hug (and id even kiss her on her cheek as a joke if i get the chance) and idk it gives me so many butterflies. there was this one time i was eating frosting on the bus (dont ask lmfao) and SHE LITERALLY TUCKED MY HAIR BEHIND MY EARS AND SAID SHE DIDNT WANT MY HAIR GETTING DIRTY AND OMFG MY HEART WAS RACING SO FAST but i didnt show any signs abt how i felt bc it would ruin our friendship. she did tell me once that she was pan so idk if she would feel the same way tho. i feel like i gaze into her eyes so much that i literally know their exact color. her left eye is blue with a part of it brownish green and then her other eye is blue and they are gorgeous. so yeah idek why im writing all this tbh but ig i just needed to let all this out and see if i truly love her and ig i do but the biggest problem is that she has a boyfriend of like 2 years and she loves him a lot and all she talks abt is pretty much him lmao and it hurts sometimes but i really dont care that much anymore. oh and i forgot to mention that there is this other girl (not gonna say any names bc my biggest fear is ppl ik reading this) but that girl is also really good friends with her and it makes me so pissed that she is trying to keep her all to herself and she is pretending that they are best friends and she makes tiktoks abt her and idk it makes me mad and kinda sad that she prob found someone else that makes her happier than i do :/

I have known her for almost three years now. And I really like her idk if it's romantic or just normal liking and as close friends we always hold hand and rest our hed on the other's shoulder and hug. But nowadays I feel so weird when I hold her hand you now I get those butterflies and I keep wanting to hold her hand. And when she laughs I love the way her eyes looks. Ugh I just wish it was normal for best friends to kiss ಥ‿ಥ but I don't wanna ruin our friendship so I won't tell her how I feel and btw my feelings aren't so strong either.

I’ve know you for a few months but it feels like I’ve known you forever. I love hugging you and holding hands and laughing together and when you lay your head on my shoulder. I’ll always hug you back and lay my head on top of yours and laugh when you poke me. You can make me happy with a single glance and today we accidentally said ‘I love you’ to reach other and I don’t know if it is platonic or not. Even if it’s always platonic I’ll always say ‘I love you’ back. I’ll always be your friend and cheer you on when you have a crush. I’ll always encourage you and help you achieve your dreams. I’ll root for you to ask out your crush and bring you the schoolwork and teach you the lessons when you’re sick. I’ll stay up all night on the chance that you need help writing an essay. I will always be there for you. I don’t know if I’m confusing platonic feelings for romantic, but no matter the connotation, I will always say ‘I love you’ back

I dont even know why im writing this.. i guess i need to vent? Ive been pretty confused lately and i dont know if these feelings i have towards you are love or just physical attraction. I wish id know. I havent had a crush all my life long and if i did it was just to cover up the fact that i didnt lmao. I feel sad when i think about you because i know youll probably never like me back or even think abt me in the same way. You most likely only see me as your best friend. And i guess thats okay. I want to be your best friend too but when i imagine myself being with you, holding your hand or laying my head on your shoulder i really wish we had that kind of relationship. Something more than just friends. I dont even know if you like girls. And i dont want to make things awkward just because of some stupid little crush but its the first time i feel like this for anyone and i didnt expext it to be such an ugly and beautiful feeling at the same time. I hope this passes and it turns out that i was just overthining everything and we can go back to the way things were before.
I hope we can both be happy, together or not

Hi Halie
You will never ever see this. I know that now. I guess I always knew I'd never be able to tell you the truth.
We met when I was 5 and you were 6, and from that point on you were the only thing I ever thought about. As a kid I would get jealous of your other girl friends and wonder if you saw me as ugly compared to them. I would wonder if you actually meant what you said when you told me that we were sisters and that you loved me so much (as a friend) and ask myself why being sisters didn't seem like enough.
Now I wonder who you have a crush on since you've come out to me as bisexual. I wonder if you ever thought of me as more than a best friend/sister and if you ever lie awake at night thinking about me.
If you haven't guess it already, I've fallen head over heels for you.
If you know who is typing this message then I'm so sorry if it makes you uncomfortable, and if it does please forget you ever saw it. Please.

But...y'know if you ever...liked me back or something...just know that my feelings for you haven't changed in the lifetime it seems that we've known each other.

I will always love you with everything in me, if not as a lover than as a sister.

Stay gold, beautiful girl.

Ik you're not gonna see this and you'll not know it's me but... you guessed it, I have a crush on you. The first time we talked in class and i saw your beautiful face and your calming voice, even witnessed your sweet personality, i knew i wanted to be more than friends someday. You are my best friend even though rn you are with your other friend more. It was actually really confusing why I was jealous at first but now i think i understand. I even remember the first time we stayed up all night because we were talking and i don't regret it at all. When i told you we needed to date "as a joke" i wish it wasn't a joke cuz i was hoping u would actually like me back. But u don't. And i fully understand why, it's okay. And this time you told me you were gay and i fully supported you, it was because i was thinking we would have a chance. And that time when i told you i had a crush and described you, or when i started telling you pick-up lines "for fun". You can know those times wasn't fully jokes and i was kinda relieved i was telling you those things, even tho you thought they were jokes. I love you so much and i don't think you would actually be there it would be really weird.
