I’m a 19-year-old and I have a male friend whom I’ve begun to fancy. But he is not aware of it yet. It’s a bit awkward when he jokes and links me up with another guy. But the worst thing that has now happened is that he’s in love with my best friend, who is also part of our friends circle, and counting on me to set them up! He feels I am his best pal! I know I should have talked to him earlier but I didn’t as I wasn’t sure about myself. I just want him to know what I feel about him but at the same time I don’t know how to say it.

Gosh! My dear girl what a problem you have landed yourself in and it is all of your own doing! You say you like him, so what stopped you from dropping hints to him or at least to the common group of friends? Obviously he has no such feelings for you and has clearly told you that he considers you as his best buddy. Meanwhile he has fallen for your friend! So start dropping hints before he gets any further with this girl. You can meanwhile confess to him your feelings. If he is mature he will understand your feelings and accordingly let you know what he feels.
