I have realised that I think I'm in love with my friend. I have only just realised how strong these feelings are and how attached I am to them. I'm really unsure what to do now, as I am too scared to tell them as id never want to ruin our friendship or make things awkward for them. I think the worst thing is that I literally feel so attached to them and it's getting to the point where I'm overthinking every single interaction with them as I'm scare they're gonna hate me. I also feel like I'm becoming clingy as I'm scared they're not gonna reply to my message or want to even be my friend any more. Part of me just wants to tell them about my feelings for them just incase there was that small change that they felt the same way, but I'm too scared of losing the friendship all together as I care about them so much. I just know that this is gonna hurt a lot and they will be hard to get over, as some of the stuff we do now is stuff that couples would do. I feel so stupid for feeling this attached to them and I'm wondering if anyone else has been through a similar experience or has any tips on how to detach a little bit? This is completely destroying me and they're all I ever think about, and I currently feel like I have a very heavy feeling in my chest as I hate the thought of being without them.
