This is my first post so hi everyone. I am a 28 years old male. There is a woman I love very much and she loves me too but the problem is that she loves me as a brother and she says she wouldn't see me in any other way. We're very close, we talk on msn everyday for hours. Even though she says she loves me very much, I just don't understand why she wouldn't give me a chance to be her boyfriend if she loves me a lot. I am also her closest friend. She tells me secrets that she never told anyone else. So here is my question; if there's a male you love very much, just like a real brother or a very close friend, but if you say you would never want him to be your lover even if he's in love with you, why is that? Can you please explain to me because I'm about to go crazy and I've no idea what to do. I told her on msn that when a male tells how he feels about a woman and she says she loves him very much but only like a brother, that male can feel that he's loved enough to be a brother and not enough to be a boyfriend, or have good enough qualities to be a brother and not good enough qualities to be a boyfriend. I explained some more things and after that she didn't even say that what I wrote is not true. Yet we're still very close and she still says she loves me a lot and wants to talk to me all the time about lots of emotional stuff. Although the title is "A question to females", I appreciate replies from males too. Thanks for the replies.
