Question: I'm a single guy who has harbored feelings for one of my best friends for a number of years. I've never said anything to her since I don't want to put her in the position of having to reject me, and I know in my head it wouldn't work out due to a number of lifestyle and religious hurdles.
She has begun seeing someone. How can I take a break from our friendship without ruining it?
?Answer:Best to lie low for a bit without explaining, since you want to maintain the friendship but you also don't care to play audience to her romance.
