You say that you think you love one of your friends. You think she is funny and nice, and you really like her which sounds like you feel these are very strong feelings. Despite this you think that she does not want to love anyone which sounds like you have not told her how you feel and sounds like you are unsure about telling her. You have been very brave and honest in writing how you feel.
