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.
