Here is my response to Alexander, the guy who is secretly in lust for and in love with his best friend:
The answer is right in your hands. You have the right strategies. All you have to do is implement it. If I were in your shoes, I will try to find my way to his crotch again. Should the "get-him-drunk" strategy work, then it's perfect.
If it doesn't, i will tell him exactly how I feel. If he avoids me after that, fine. That is what he has been doing anyway. If it brings us into a new level of relationship, then perfect.
If the two plans fail, then it is just a confirmation that he is not into you and its a clear go signal to move on. You are young. And you are destined to meet so many other men in your life.
Good luck in your plans.
