I like you a lot, but I like you as my guy best friend that I can vent to about stupid stuff. You're the one who can just hang with me when the girls are busy or with their boyfriends.
And it’s not that I friend zoned you on purpose, it is just something that has evolved over the years. We have become so close and we just seem to get each other. We always have the best advice for one another when it comes to life or relationships.
I’m so sorry. I know this has to be difficult for you and you have no idea how difficult it is for me.
You're still are my go to when I need the truth on a situation, but now I feel as if I have to watch what I say and do because the secret is out that you have “more than friends” feelings for me.
I just want you to know that you are such a great guy. You have such a big heart and pay attention to the little things.
I remember when you would make comments about me that not many people would notice. Truly that means so much to me.
You are a gentleman. You make sure I get home safely after a drunken night out. You never disrespect me and occasionally complement me on when I look pretty. You can do all these amazing things, but I still can’t see past the friendship we have.
People ask why I don't just date you and I can never put my finger on the reasoning. You are an attractive guy, but the thought of physically loving you as a partner does not cross my mind. You did nothing wrong to deserve this.
The saying “It’s not you, it’s me” is actually true.
It sucks because I want to keep this friendship, but I do not want to hurt you when another guy comes into my life that I actually fall for and risk hurting you on a deeper level.
I guess all I can really say is sorry. You will make your future wife so happy and she will be so loved; however, I’m sorry that woman will never be me.
So I hope our friendship can last, but I also hope you understand that 'we' will never happen.
