Crushing on my bestie

We held hands today, but I don’t know if she likes me back. There’s only one way to find out, says our elder. Be brave and ask her!

Dear EWC

Okay, so I have a crush on my best friend. We are both girls. I am bi and so is she. I don’t know if she likes me back. At a sleepover two weeks ago she fell asleep with her head on my shoulder. We sat together for a little while in the dark just listening to music. We have had a few guys ask us each out and we have both rejected them. I told her about some guy that had a crush on me, and she rejected him on my behalf. My other friends say they ship us and think we would be a cute couple. We went to a dance together, platonically, and she accidentally told our social studies teacher we were going together. She is just so cute and kind. We also appreciate each other’s interests. I don’t know if she likes me back though. We went ice skating together today and held hands. Please let me know what you think. Thank you.

I would have no way of knowing whether or not she likes you in the same way you like her. The best advice I can offer you is that you should ask her!

You can let her know how you feel about her and if she doesn’t feel the same way, the two of you can remain friends if you can handle the rejection you may feel if she says she doesn’t feel the same way you feel. Nobody knows how she feels except her so be brave and ask her. Great love requires great risk!
