I'm in love with a girl that I've known for about 10+ years. We've been in high school together and we currently attend the same church. We recently became close friends, and I get nervous when she brings up dating guys because I've been wanting to date her for years. But as of late, she no longer talks to me much, she doesn't give me hugs like she used to, sometimes we butt heads. She's cute, smart, sweet, everything Is want in a girlfriend/wife. I'm getting anxiety from not being able to text her without more than a one word response. I feel that she doesn't want to talk to me anymore. Idk what to do, I want to pour my heart out to her but I don't want to at the same time, I'm afraid that her reaction can break me. Convince me to tell her somehow.

You need to tell her.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but she's probably picked up on your feelings already... us girls have a knack at it. She doesn't reciprocate the feelings if this is the case.
But the thing is, when you tell her and get ultimately rejected, you WILL be able to move on eventually, and still possibly have her as a platonic friend. It'll be better than hanging in limbo because you're too scared to say anything.
I could be wrong, though... sometimes girls get quiet when they realize they like someone that's THAT close to them. I wouldn't get your hopes up, but it's a potential.
BUT STOP HANGING IN THE MIDDLE. YOU'RE GOING TO PROLONG YOUR SUFFERING IF YOU DO. RIP THE BAND-AID.
