Getting closer with a work friend when you have a bit of a crush too...

Can it be done safely, or should I just leave it alone/keep it 100% about work? I have a friend/coworker who has been really good to me since I started at my job a couple years ago, recently helped me through a rough situation at work in a way that made a huge difference, and is a lot of fun to hang out with as well. I'm interested in being better friends and to be someone who has his back to the extent he has had mine, but there's some awkwardness to that, given minor power dynamics and the fact that I have a bit of crush on him (hopefully a secret one). Has anyone successfully navigated anything like this? Any suggestions? Some potentially relevant details below: [more inside]

How do I deal with a weird friendship?

Hi everyone. Since I started college (it's 2 and a 1/2 years now, I've had a weird relationship with a guy friend I had a long unrequited crush on. We're both 20. II'm a girl. I really really want to stay being friends with him but I feel like he doesn't care about me as much as he should, especially since he says he likes being my friend. Lots of weirdness inside.

Please don't ask me on a date.

I know a guy in person that I've been chatting with online. In person, I'm not attracted to him at all. But I am intellectually turned on by the conversations we have. (Anon because I talk to this guy on the internet.) I don't want this to go any farther. [more inside]

I just think that we'd get on.

I haven't had a crush since I was 14 and now I have a HUGE one. I have never had to be the pursuer before, but now I think I need to be. AskMeFi, teach me to flirt and pursue while still keeping me cool!! [more inside]
