I wanted us to be just friends and I told you from the very start. Some how we got closer.You began to feel something for me. I did not notice at first. Your jealousy increased I played it cool. Now you have opened up. I know Iy must have been difficult for you to . Now I cannot pretend any longer. We need to talk about it .
I do not have to pretend to feel the same way as that would be dishonesty on my part. I do not want to turn you down abruptly. For that would bring an end tovthe wonderful friendships.The awkwardness is what I am trying to manage now so we need loose everything.
I am sorry If I gave you any signal that I would be interested in taking decision is to the next level.
I need your affirmation that you can handle and accept the situation without feeling embarrassed and return to normal friendship without avoiding each other.
I promise not to tell any third party about this disclosure.I would tune down any flirting signs I might be giving unknowing
