    So my best guy friend just admitted he thinks he has feelings for me. I'm panicking a little, every time someone has said this it has wrecked our friendship. He knows I don't have feelings for him but I don't want this to destroy how close we are. What should I do?!

    If you have no feelings for him just be honest. Distant yourself for a week or two for him to understand that and gather his thoughts. Also try without acting weird to maybe not be too "friendly" boys sometimes mistake this for flirting.

    Just speak as usual friends with him. You definitely need time to think for it. Till then just be normal friends.

      Since he was so honest with you, I think you should do the same. Tell him you don't have feelings for him and you don't want to lose him as a friend. And together come up with a way to move past this... I don't think you should necessarily distance yourself unless he says he needs that space. Distancing yourself might make him feel rejected twice and he'll most probably regret saying anything... but I'm just guessing. Best thing is to speak to him about it be sensitive, but not patronising. Good luck.

      If you care about him, you need to stop being friends with him (if he is too attached to take this decision himself). He isn't really your friend now -- it's simply the second best option that allows him to keep a glimmer of hope intact.

      He probably wouldn't be as good a friend to you if he didn't fancy you, so yeah, might as well end this charade and tell him you're not interested.

      He knows that I don't feel the same way and I've made this clear when people were telling us we would be good together.

      Also to make the situation worse I recently broke up with his brother... Like 5 days ago!
