My best friend has proposed to me

I'm 24 and my best friend is of the same age

Dear Diana,
He’s the nicest and the dearest person I know. We went to school and college together. Last week, he came over to my place and said that he loves me. In fact, he said he had been in love with me since years. I was shocked because I always thought he wouldn’t fall for someone like me. Moreover, we are friends, right? I couldn’t say much except that I need time to think. What should I do? Accept his proposal?

Dear Uditi,
It looks like he was alone in this relationship. Considering that both of you have known each other for years, it is strange that he did not drop hints. And nor did you sense it. Anyways it is better late than never. The only thing that beats me is that why did he all of a sudden admit it now? Are his folks planning to get him married? I am sure there is a reason that prompted him to say it all of a sudden now. You need to talk to him and get a clear picture first. Also, you never had feelings for him all these years, so overnight you too will have to do a rethink. It has come as a shock to you so it will take a while for you to realise it. Give yourself some time and then decide.
