I'm having feelings for my best friend but scared he won't feel the same

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN I came out to my best friend last summer, he was so supportive – he even promised to come with me when I tell my parents.

He’s 28, I’m 27 and we’ve been friends for the last eight years after meeting at uni.

Recently we’ve been hanging out together a lot.

We regularly drive down to the coast to walk our dogs and go out for dinner at least once a week.

I’m starting to have romantic feelings for him.

I think he likes me, too. He’s very tactile, always hugging me and paying me compliments.

But what if I’ve read the signs wrong and this ruins our friendship?
