Meanwhile, some folks are in between the both.  They have waited long enough and are ready to take their relationship “to the next level”.  So what happens when a person decides to finally reveal their romantic feelings to their friend/ crush?

I know that it can be nerve-wracking, especially if they’re not sure if the friend shares similar feelings.  Rejection is hard, but losing a friend would be even more painful.

This can be challenging territory to tread.  That’s why I teamed up with Brit + Co to discuss ways to pursue a romantic relationship while protecting the friendship.  Yes, it’s absolutely possible!  There, I share some pointers to help you along.

Have more ideas?  Feel free to share them with me on social media.
