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.

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?

DEIDRE SAYS: The only way to know how your friend feels is to ask him. Keep it casual. While on one of your walks, ask if he would like to go on a date.
