Dear Two Views,

I have a friend that I've known since childhood and while I don't want to have a romantic relationship with her, I am in love with her. She knows how I feel and she says it makes her feel uncomfortable because we are such close friends. Although she won't admit it, she has feelings for me too but she has a boyfriend. I try to explain to her that I don't want anything more than what we have already but she never believes me. I'm very deeply in love with her but not sexually so I wouldn't do anything to jeopardize her relationship with her boyfriend. I think that she is uncomfortable with my feelings because she doesn't trust her own feelings and is afraid that something might happen between us. This situation is putting distance between us and we need to talk about it but she is reluctant to talk about what she is thinking. How do I get her to talk to me? I really want us to resolve this.
