I am lucky to have a great best friend. We have been friends for nearly 8 years now, and we have so many similarities that it's creepy. I've stayed at her house, we have stayed up late watching romantic comedies, and we have cooked together and our parents are great friends along with our sisters. We can talk about anything and everything for hours. We've talked about dating before (not each other), and I feel like maybe she has given some hints that she would like to go out in the future. We both love Hallmark movies, and we always make fun of the guy who can't take a hint that the girl likes him! I don't want to be that guy, but I don't want to make things weird either. Neither of us are ready to date now, but I think maybe we should be honest about our feelings for each other (if there are any). I have had a "crush" on her for awhile, but were just friends now and she's someone that I respect and enjoy spending time with. So should I bring up the topic and risk making things weird for a little, or should I just leave it alone and wait until we are ready to date to talk about this? Again, we aren't ready to date, so it would be around a year before anything would really happen.
