Approach the conversation with honesty and sensitivity. Start by expressing gratitude for the friendship and then gently share your feelings, emphasizing that you value the friendship regardless of the outcome. Respect their feelings and be prepared for any response, whether it's reciprocation or a desire to maintain the friendship without romantic involvement. Regardless of the outcome, communicate your commitment to preserving the friendship and give them space to process their emotions. It's essential to respect their boundaries and avoid pressuring them into reciprocating your feelings. Remember that honesty and open communication are key to maintaining a healthy friendship, even if romantic feelings are not mutual.
