I stand before you on my feeble, wobbly soap box to preach to you the beauty of turning a crush into a friend. I’m not saying it is always easy; I am not even saying it is always the right move, but with the right blend of self reflection and honesty, the end of a crush can be the start of a beautiful friendship.
