How would you react if you found out a close friend had feelings for you?

Would you be flattered? Feel betrayed? Feel awkward? Uncomfortable?

Why?

If she were hot and available, like myself (ladies: ), then I would be extremely happy.

Honestly, it would depend on the situation. In a situation I'd been in, both of us knew about the feelings, and it just took someone to get the courage to step up and say something about it. If it were a platonic situation where both us knew it wouldn't be cool, then definitely things would be uncomfortable.

How exactly would betrayal factor in, though?

I would say, "Dude, we're not there yet."


Thanks you, and welcome to last week.

Okay, that line can die now.

I would feel flattered first and foremost. Akward and uncomfortable if she's an ugly beast. I don't understand the betrayal part, though.

Gender hasn't been established.... it could be a HE.

Either way, I'll vote for uncomfortable... but I can't vote since THIS ISN'T A POLL

I would still be flattered, but I might have to think about it before I put it in his mouth.

my girlfriend had this happen to her right before we got together. her friend had come over to her place, he cooked her dinner, had too much wine and told her he had strong feelings for her. they had been (and still are) friends for about four years. it was awkward for her. she told him that the romantic feelings weren't reciprocated. the poor guy should have realized that when a woman wants you, it's hard to miss. and if she hadn't made it clear after four years, it's because it didn't exist. anyway, he's a good guy. they are still friends and i work in the edit bay right next to his.

Why?
All my female friends are attractive women (I refuse to befriend uglies). So, as long as it wasn't a guy friend, I'd be happy.

If my friend was a chick, I'd do her and never see her again after that.

If my friend was a dude, I'd beat his ass, pick him up off the floor, and resume the friendship.

I refuse to be friends with an ugly girl, so I'd be all over that.
