So I’ve known my friend for almost two years now and we’ve become really close over the past few months. In those few months I’ve also fallen in love with him. We have awesome chemistry between us. Thing is I’m gay and he’s straight, I think. I now find myself feeling weird and awkward when we are together. I want to let him know how I feel about him but I don’t know how to start the conversation. I’m confident that even if he’s not interested in me as a lover we will continue to be friends. Any advice or suggestions on a clever way to bring up the topic?
