I've been mulling over a situation the past few hours, trying to figure out a reasonable course of action. I think I know what I'm going to do about it, but I'm also curious to see what outside parties might have to say. So, here goes.
A couple of years ago, I started 'talking' to a girl I went to high school with. I'll refer to her as Jane. Well, before we even started dating I began forming a friendship with Jane's best friend. I'll refer to her as Jill. This was a result of Jill offering me advice about pursuing a relationship with Jane. Well, things went fairly well so Jane and I decided to date. Maybe two months in, Jane began to hate Jill because of my friendship with the latter. Jane broke her friendship with Jill. Jill, however, was adamant about remaining friends with me. She had by now begun to consider me her best friend. Now, I understand it wasn't the best idea on my part to be friends with Jill, but that's besides the point. Near the end of my relationship with Jane, I developed a crush on Jill. She tended to flirt with me a lot and I could only assume she liked me at some point. There was a lot of physical contact, etc. between us. Anyways, after I broke up with Jane I still hadn't plucked up the courage to tell Jill. Before long, it was too late and Jill began dating someone. They dated for four or five months and just broke up a few days ago. Of course, I still like her. However, I'm not sure if she still might feel anything towards me at this point. We've been friends and hung out pretty regularly this entire time, minus the last couple of weeks. However, today she made a point to tell me she missed me. That's what sort of resurfaced this question of pursuing a relationship with her. Oh, and she's going off to college 3+ hours away in about a month.
Now, logic would leave me to believe that it's best to let the situation go and not tell her. I value her friendship, we have mutual friends, and I have no interest in making things awkward or having our mutual friends know I have a huge crush on her if she doesn't reciprocate the feelings. Plus, I have absolutely no idea at this point if she might be interested in me. Not the slightest clue.
Anyone care to give me their thought on the situation? I can further elaborate if need be.
