Have you ever found yourself in the situation where you start to have romantic feelings for your best friend?

“I started thinking of her in a different way. I thought that we had so much in common that it could work out,” said Noe Garcia, a sophomore at South Mountain High School. “I had to tell her that I liked her more than just a friend. I waited for the right moment to tell her that I had feelings for her.”

“We were getting something to eat when he started to act weird,” said sophomore Joanna Nunez. “I was in shock when he told me, because it was something I did not expect. I told him I had to think about it.”

Nunez was concerned that changing her relationship with Garcia would be a risk. What if things didn’t work out?

“I thought to myself what would happen if we broke up?” said Nunez. “Would I lose my best friend?”

“My concerns were that we could end up in a fight and break up and not be friends with each other anymore. Lose the trust we had before,” said Garcia.

“He convinced me that we could make it work with no problems,” Nunez said.

Family members and friends were not surprised that the couple started dating.

“When he confessed to me that he liked me, then I un- derstood what people had told me. That we would be a good couple, because we had so much in common,” said Nunez.

“Our relationship has changed, because we have been best friends for two years and now we are going out,” said Nunez. “Our parents were not surprised because we would spend a lot of time together.”

“Out of nowhere we are going out. All that is really different is the way we talk to each other,” said Garcia. “And the kissing.”
