Our expert says:
it sounds like you have a very special friendship that is important to you. Sometimes these kinds of friendships do develop into something more intimate, but at other times people decide that being in a relationship is not what the friendship is about. Moving from a friendship to a relationship can also damage the friendship. You have to ask yourself whether you can risk losing such a good friend?
Given how close you are talk to each other about it, so that you know where you both stand on the issue. You are already supportive of each other so its best to clear the air rather than wondering all the time. The uncertainty may also put a strain on the friendship.
These kinds of situation are never easy, or straightforward but because of how close you are it is important that you put what you have and value before anything else.
