I work in a shop and I have a lot of colleagues. There is one colleague which I really really like. But the problem is that I am a girl, and so is she. We get along good, but just as friends. I'm twenty years old, and I never had these feelings for a girl before (I've had crushes on guys). She doesn't have a boyfriend or ever had one, as I recall. I'm afraid to say something because that could ruin our friendship and the work atmosphere, and I'm really afraid of what she'll think of me if I say something about it. But I'm afraid that when I don't say anything I'll regret it.
Your story is exactly like mine and I don't plan on telling her either. However that's because I'm confused about a lot of things but maybe that's not you. I say if you are brave enough to put yourself out there then you should go for it. Here's the thing if you care about her that much til the point that you may regret not saying anything then I think you should tell her. At least you know you took that chance and you don't have to wonder what if.
