I’ve had a best guy friend since third grade. I asked him
out last month, and he said, “I would just like it if we stayed really close
friends.” I like him so much, I just want to give him one kiss! If I could get
that out of my system, my whole life would be better. My grades would go up,
and I would stop daydreaming. How could I possibly give him just one kiss (not
French-kiss, just regular) and still remain good friends? I need this so much,
you can’t believe it.
Dear Just One Kiss,
I know the feeling but, unfortunately, I can’t say, “Who
cares that he wants to be just friends? If you feel like kissing him, hey, go
for it!” Doesn’t work that way. I know you’re yearning for more, but try to
enjoy the friendship. If you rush to pucker up, he might go into panic mode.
Wouldn’t you freak if a guy friend surprised you with a kiss? (I mean, a
different guy friend!) Besides, even if you were to cop that kiss, you would
not magically get A’s or stop daydreaming. You might even daydream about more
kisses! Will the two of you cozy up someday? Maybe, maybe not. For now, keep
your head out of the clouds.
Love this post? You’ll heart these too…
