Hey Lex! Firstly I want to commend you for actually caring and respecting this girl enough to come here and ask for opinions and advice (I know too many guys that wouldn't!) If my screen name hasn't given it away, I am a girl and I'm gonna start by generalizing and saying we all appreciate honesty and being upfront - so even though you're worried, and it may be a hard conversation to have with her, you're already starting good by wanting to deal with the situation, rather than just leading her on. It may sound like bad or "too simple" of advice but literally, if you're ready to confront her, just be HONEST. Tell her exactly how you feel about her (as a friend) and that you really just don't want to lose her and a relationship risks that. Say that you like things as they are and just want to take it easy or let things run their course. I think the follow up is important though - if you have this conversation with her, changes are she will probably get shy for a few days/week after and be a bit scared to contact you - - which means you've gotta step back in and "act normal" and be the one to contact her to catch up again after. Does that make sense? Good on you and good luck!
