Today, after weeks of debating with myself, I finally got the courage to ask out my best friend of 9 years. She turned me down, saying that dating me would be like adopting a puppy, and she doesn't want that kind of responsibility. FML

  • Sounds like she's just scared of it not working out and ruining your friendship. And she might view it as her 'responsibility' for it to work and not let that happen.

  • Better her closest friend that lasts a lifetime than a relationship that turns sour and leaves your friendship awkward to impossible.
    Your lucky she's honest with you.
    Besides who doesn't love a puppy (so she does care), sounds like she thinks your just a little needy.
    Give yourself a couple more years to mature a little more and who knows...
