I have a friend who I've know for 9/10 years now. Around 7 and a half years ago I moved to Portugal from England and left my friends behind. I used to visit every year, and when my friend was a little older, around 15, curiosity kicked in and she was ready to experiment.
She asked me about if I would be up for being with her, but as friends, no feelings attached. Because she trusts me.
That was fine, and when I went on holiday the next time, things happened between us but just as friends.
This went on for around 2 years, counting I was only in England for 2 weeks each year so not much time together, but it was great fun.
Now I've just moved back to England, and we met up as usual. This time though, as soon as we were together there was nothing holding us back. But it was different, it was nbetter, much better, not just mindless sex...
So now we need to talk, I've already said we need to talk, and she knows why but seems cool with it, because we both know that feelings have developed.
We've known each other for a long time, we know each other well, I get along really well with her mum. And I think it may be ok.
But if anything went wrong, I'm afraid of loosing her as a friend. She's amazing and I really enjoy being with her, we always have a laugh.
Any tips to make this work guys?
Sorry for the not bad date story.
