Dear readers and forum members:

Thank you so much for the Ask April Relationship Advice Forum. What a warm and welcoming community!

Due to the demands of launching my new company, AIFI (American Initiative for Film Industry Research Institute & Development Council), I'm so sorry to say that I must suspend forum activity.

I wish you all the very best, always.

April

Friendzone

#1
I have a guy friend since i was entering the first year in college. We've already know each other and actually i have a crush on him since a year ago. At first, he is joking me around and teasing me. About 4-5 months ago, we become closer and maybe become best friend. We lived in the same dorm (different room) when we did an internship program. That's why we become closer. Sometimes i have a feeling that he has a crush on me too, but i doubt it. Since we lived in the same dorm, he obviously worry about me not having a dinner (I think i am to confident). And when i had a injury in my knees, he secretively buy me a plaster through his friend (because he is the only one of my friend that knew my injury).

Actually, I want to confess it to him but i'm afraid that will risking our friendship if he doesn't like me. Or become awkward each other. But, I think he already knows that i like him because he once ask me if i have a crush or not. And foolishly I tell him that I like someone else, not him. But he said he already knows that i am in love before i tell to him. And he always forces me to confess to my crush. Is that mean he likes me too or what? What should I do? Should I confess to him or not? Thank you.

To get out of the friend zone, you have to stop being his friend. This means you risk a friendship -- but that friendship doesn't really exist. You're not friends, you're something more. So, don't be available the way a friend is, and instead, do flirt with him and compliment him so he knows you find him attractive and you're interested in dating him. This is all a lot more difficult to do than to talk about -- but it's a great tool to have and use, and it's the best way to escape the friend zone and become a romantic contender. ;)

try to stop the front zone. It is the perfect way of you to separate with them.. avoid any kind of conversations through them.. try something new for your better.. mingle with more peoples .

I guess, that if he gives you a plaster through his friend, it means he is shy to approach you himself. It wouldn't be the case, if you were friends only. You'll find great pieces of April's advice here on RelationshipAdviceForum.com. If you don't want to risk your friendship, try to be creative. You are a woman, you may find ways to hint him that you are interested in something more than just friendship. For example, next time you'll be laughing at something together, kiss him gently on cheek. If he won't accept it warmly, then just smile and tell him it was just in the hit. Good luck!

Getting out of the friend zone can be tough -- but it's worth it to figure out exactly where you stand. I know it's scary to risk rejection, but I'd encourage you to take that risk. ;)
