Two nights ago, I had a very interesting night. For sometime now, I've been having a crush on my salsa dance partner - should be familiar to many here on DF. We've been good friends for quite a while, and have been hanging out together. Anyway, she came by two nights ago. We had dinner, then played some music together, talked and stuff till 3 am, then watched a movie till 5 am,...and then I gathered up my courage (the bottle of wine helped) and told her how I was kinda falling in love with her... I wasn't expecting a similar declaration from her - was pretty sure it was just friendship from her side, but I felt kinda guilty about her not-knowing, cuz we were getting quite cosy and all. Anyways, I was mortally affraid that would be the end of our friendship...rather opposite seems to have happened. She in fact doesn't seem to mind to much...she simply kinda grabbed me and hugged me and we sat talking for another hour or so. Then she kept me company throughout the rest of the night and we slept together (in literal sense, not sexually!), which I found really sweet...got this really sweet email today, 'im here for you if you need me' type of thing...as far as these type of things go, she was pretty good at it i'd say. So...we kinda seem to be even better friends than before...am really happy with this type of intimate friendship. guess I'll just try to think of her in a brother-sister type of thing...has kinda worked before am usually pretty shy so rather proud and relieved i finally managed to tell her...glad she was so, hmm, adult about it. it helped that she went through a similar episode a while ago i suppose... so...any similar experiences from any of you? all of you with dancefloor crushes....you been keeping it secret from him or her...? planning to tell her? and if you did...what happened?
