Feelings for a friend

I’m a female and my name is J. I have recently had another female tell me that she liked me more than a friend. This was a shock to me. I started thinking about it and I do have feelings for her too. But I’m confused because I don’t know if this is just a phase I’m going through, or if I really do have feelings for her. Please help!

  • Talking to a trusted friend, or an an adult, may be a good option right now. Simply talking about something as confusing as this may put your mind at ease somewhat.
  • Maybe you can just take time with yourself to think about what it is you need to do with your feelings. Some people find that writing their feelings down in a journal to be very therapeutic.
  • There are many great sites online and on Teencentral.com to give you the support you need during this time.
