My dude friend likes me and I like him but he says he values our friendship and really doesn’t want to risk it what should I say to him ? – RelationshipsReport
I’ve been in the same situation and known a lot of others too. unfortunately, what he means by this is probably that he doesn’t like you enough to think a relationship would go anywhere. i suggest you thank him for his honesty and maturity, and stay just friends for now. you can still wait a while, and maybe if you keep your cool and stay good friends with him he’ll decide it’d be worth the risk, but wait for him to bring it up again.
