Hi there!

I understand a friend told you he loves you and you do not share his feelings, right?

In your situation, some people choose to talk to the other person in a moment when he is relaxed and available. One might say, for example : "I am truly flattered, but I don't love you the same way you love me and I'm sorry". There are no magic tricks to tell the truth and sometimes, yes, truth can hurt. Tell me, if you were in his situation, would prefer to know the truth? If so, other young ones find it helpful to write their ideas down and try to talk about themselves, this helps the other person not to feel that there is something wrong about him. For example, we can say "I love playing with you, you are a good friend, but I'm not in love with you" or "I am not ready for love, it is too grown up for me right now". Would you like to try that?

Please feel free to call to discuss this further, we answer the phone 24/7 at 1-800-263-2266.

Take care,
