    I know there's counseling for couples, but what about for two friends?

    You'd be absolutely the first i know who've asked for something like that. But that doesn't mean its impossible, I see no reason why such councelling could not apply to friends.

    I've never heard of such a thing. At least not as a specific specialty like "Marriage Counseling." I guess you could probably go to a marriage counselor, making it known that you're only friends.

    Perhaps I'll see a therapist myself this summer, and ask him/her about it. :hs:

    maybe you should ask yourself why you're investing so much time and effort into a friendship.

    honestly.... i know nothing about you guys, but it sounds to me like you're so clingy you'd chase away a girlfriend, let alone a regular friend. Id suggest you find regular activities to do that dont involve him. Friends are people you hang out with every so often, not every day

    I've never chased away a girlfriend. And this friend is a girl.

    Lets not go into the assumptions zone, if the poster wants clarify the issues, then the poster has every freedom to do so when it befits him best.
