I am going to reply, but please keep in mind that it is only from my life experience that I respond. I was in the exact same situation as this girl of yours a few years back. I told the guy over and over that all I could be was friends. I tried to be the best I could at being friends, but by the fact that I spent time with him and talked to him I ended up making him miserable. Which I feel bad for. But, the point is this. I told him I would hurt him if we became a couple and I didn't want that, I was being honest with him. I did end up getting involved with him, but more cuz he was there than because it was what I truely wanted. So, what Im saying to you is, if you want to stay friends thats fine, but respect that you guys are ONLY friends and act like one dont try to push her, otherwise maybe you will both end up hurt. The only other suggestion I have is to ask her "Why?" and maybe her answer will be something you can work with. Otherwise, just let it go. You can't force someone to feel a certain way, especially when it comes to love. If you feel you can't be satisfied just being friends you might have to tell her this and then move on. Sorry if thats not what you want to hear, but in the long run, if someone tells you they feel a certain way, odds are they do. But, hey, its only my opinion Good luck.
