Have you fallen for one of your friends? Sometimes they easily manage to turn the friendship into a relationship. But more often, they keep their feelings secret for fear of embarrassment or of ruining an important friendship forever. Although satisfying physically, these arrangements can be very draining emotionally. These can be the strongest, most satisfying and longest-lasting of all relationships. Modern dating is often based on instant attraction and shared interests.
But friendships that turn into love are based on a true understanding of each other, honesty, and a shared history. It took time to develop your friendship, and it will take a little more time to change it into a relationship. Open a conversation about your feelings. But, to prevent feeling embarrassed or putting your friend on the spot, phrase it in a subtle way. The beauty of this remark is that it puts absolutely no pressure on your friend to reply in any particular way. If they are interested, it gives them an easy opportunity to reply that they had a crush on you, too, and in fact they still do.
But psychologically, this comment goes a little deeper: it also inspires a competitive spirit in your friend. Your friend will need time to ponder, so give them some room. The Scarcity Principle is well documented in psychology. Become just a little more difficult to pin down. If you usually see your friend three times a week, reduce that to two, or even one. If you usually spend 30 minutes on the phone to each other, cut back to just Having a pseudo-partner will hold you back. The best way to introduce the Scarcity Principle is to charmingly turn down last-minute suggestions, or mundane activities like watching TV together.
If your friend suggests you go for dinner or plans a fun activity for the weekend, go! Instead, build up your own social life and actively engage in more of your own hobbies and interests.
All those things that you love and admire about your friend—tell them. Never hold back a compliment or miss an opportunity to admire your friend. Just be charming.
This allows your friend to see you in the role of their partner. You can continue being friends, while you keep widening your own social circle and eventually find someone who does share all your dreams and goals. Good luck! Related Content.Searching for a friend and lover
