I love my best friend, but he is hesitating to confront for his mother's disagreement

Asked by Female, 20, Single
I am in a situation where neither I can leave him nor I can tell him that I love him a lot. Though he is my best friend. We have been friends for 5 years. I love him since many years but he has realized that I am perfect for him. And according to him, we can't be together because he always says that his mom will never accept me as his wife. But he cares for me and he has always concerned about me. These were the reasons that made our bond stronger. I just want him to feel and realize that I can take care of him and his family. Our college days are coming to an end and we won't be able to meet every day. We will be graduates and I don't want to lose him. I wish he could understand me and my feelings and make an attempt to convince his mother.

Hi I can understand your situation.. I can see your love for him.. I'm glad you came forward for help which shows that you are a strong lady... Have you told your guy about your feelings toward him?? And I feel if he truly loves you he will surely try and convince his mom... You are just 20 you have a long time to go... First try telling him about your feelings, next concentrate on your career once you are settled if you still have the same feelings for him then you can do something about it.. Continue to remain as friends, he too may start feeling the same for you... Looking for your response...
