    Nope! I dont think so- with the attraction being there- it can only go one way!!!

    and then you'll get feelings for them the more you get to know them, and they become even more attractive and BAM next thing you know you LIKE THEM ALOT :yep:

    Nope, one person wants a friendship and the other is after something more. It's happened so many times to me that I had to cut the friendship or ask them out. Neither option ended nicely...

    Sure. I've been attracted to many friends over the years to some degree. Pretty normal I think.

    Good, we had the same friendship group so all his & my friends knew and they would ship us and stuff but he didn't mind and we still text and stuff and it ain't awkward, but it seemed slightly more than a friendship for both of us.

    It's what I'm doing now- it's hard at times but fine generally. I'm 99% sure she's straight and her friendship means too much to me to risk ruining that by asking her.
