Anonymousasks: Hi! My guy friend has a crush on me but i don't feel the same way, and we're all in the same friend group. He's been talking to me more and more and I obviously want to talk to him, but just as friends. I tend to get super awkward when I know a guy likes me and start to avoid them like no tomorrow. But I actually want to maintain the friendship I have with him and our group of friends. What would you do?
ah, yes. I’ve been there. How do you know he likes you? Did he tell you or did a friend tell you? Does he know you know? I feel like it’d be best to talk about it. I mean either way it’s going to be awkard since you don’t return the feelings, but if you just pretend it’s not happening and he keeps pursuing you, it’s going to get worse. And of course, you don’t want to lead him on because that always ends badly too.
