20 guys who confessed their love to their straight best friend

It’s simple math, really. There are vastly more straight guys out there than gay folk, and feelings do have a way of taking control of the senses. But what should you do if you fall head over heels for a straight friend?

Be honest and tell them? Honesty and trust are the cornerstones of friendship, but do you really want to risk harming the relationship by making your deeper feelings known?

Keep it a secret? This might seem appealing at first, but keeping secrets can be a painful way to move about life.

Ultimately, it’s probably best to have some sort of dialogue with your friend about your feelings. If he really cares about you, he’ll probably be just fine about it after that initial awkwardness.

Below, 20 guys people share their experience with this situation on Whisper:

I fell in love with my straight, male best friend. When I told him, he ended up having sex with me ... on my roommate's bed. We don't talk anymore, and nobody knows why But I do.

I told my best friend I'm in love with him today... he chuckled and said "you're high right?"

I told my straight friend that I liked him. He's okay with it. This is the best feeling in the world.

I have a crush on my straight friend. I told him. He felt bad for me so he sent me his nude pics and was like "Im not going to have sex with you but help yourself to these". Best friend award winner.

Once upon a time, I had a crush on my straight best friend. I told him and he just blushed and smiled, said "Thank you" and we moved on. This is what happens when you aren't a drama queen. ð???

So I told my straight best friend I was in love with him tonight.... think it was for the best or a mistake?

Im Gay. I fell in love with my "straight" best friend. Last night I told him how I felt, and this morning Im waking up in his arms. :)

Told my best friend that I'd fallen in love with him... that shit backfired brilliantly!

I told my straight friend I liked him, didn't expect he would like me back... but was still hurt when he confirmed it.

So I told my "straight friend" I like him... He kinda blew it off as if it was nothing. I want to die rn.

I told my straight friend I liked him. We haven't talked since then.

Just told my straight best friend that I'm gay and in love with him over text.. Wtf did I do. ð??«ð??«

I finally told my friend that I am in love with him. My chest feels about 20lbs lighter

I told my straight friend I had a crush on him. And that I like him for his big body. He seemed ok with it and unbothered. I'm surprised, but all I can do now is think of him.

So i told my straight friend (and crush) about my sexual feelings toward him.... He told me that it's completely normal and that I shouldn't feel bad about it. I'm so lucky to have him as a friend.

I'm gay but so in love with my straight friend. I wish he could just let me love him.

A month ago, I told my best friend that I was gay and I had a crush on him. He said that he was straight but would have dated me if he was gay. He just came out to me yesterday.

OMFG... I told my straight friend i had a crush on him since we were younger & he agreed to kiss me. He kissed me.

I'm gay, and I have the biggest crush on my straight friend. (Love straight boys) It's been 9 years, and I just told him this year. We are pretty much best friends now and talk every day.

I'm madly in love with my straight friend. I told him. No response. I don't think I'll ever stop crying.
