Dear Breakup Girl,

Thanks for being, I think you're the best!

I have this friend who is a guy and yes, we really are just friends (even though I hate saying *just* friends, I think friends are never *just* friends). We are both 20 by the way. We get along very well, have the same interests etc. and I'm happy to have him as a friend. Except that... Sometimes I develop this little crush on him and can't help thinking how good couple we would make. But then, I don't think that we could go back to being friends if we first went out together and then broke up. I'd very much like it to be possible but I just don't believe in it (something to do with the fact that my parents have been very much divorced since I was very small. Now they couldn't even be in the same room for two minutes without getting extremely rude...). So, I think our friendship is too valuable to be put in risk for something that probably wouldn't last anyway and I'm just going to shut up about my occasional feelings. I honestly don't know how he feels about these things (and I'm definitely *not* going to ask!) but I haven't noticed any reason to believe he sees me as anything else than a friend.

So, do you think I am anywhere near the right tracks with my thoughts? I know I can live with the current situation and be happy 94% of the time. Am I one of the people who write to you and answer their own questions at the end of their letters? <grin>

Dear Maggie,
