    Suppose you have this long term friend, but then you stop thinking of them as a friend and secretly want to be something more- how do you make that happen?

    Do you actually have to tell them how you feel? Like would you have to talk to them about it

    Yeah I think so because even if something happened like kissing or sex they might still just see you as a friends but just enjoying other benefits so it's best to be honest.

    guys please

    Invite her to dinner and propose.

    She'll look shocked, so shocked people around you will think it is real.

    Then if she values the friendship she will feel pressured into saying yes.

    Congratulations you are married.

    I have now been with my best friend of four years for one year.

    We talked about it, and pushed boundaries. Felt weird at first but now it feels very nice and normal.
