I think I have made things awkward, with my friend

In year 7, when we started secondary school, we were put in the same form. We ended up sitting in the same table and we were talking a lot about things.

She was from my primary school, so I knew her quite a bit.

Then a year went by, and year 8 came along. We were put in the same group, for nearly everything. She wanted me to sit next to her in every subject we had together. I was having a great time.

I few weeks into year 8 and I realised I had feelings for her. At the time, I didn't realise how strong they were.

Everyday, I talked to her. We talked on Facebook a bit, but at school, we talked a lot. After a couple of weeks, we started to drift away from each other. I, naturally, tried to keep the friendship going.

I 'liked' her for the whole year, and gradually, she didn't talk to me as much.

I'm now in year 9, and we are still in the same group. I have told her I 'like' her, but I think I may have made things awkward. She barely talks to me now, any advice?

I'd advise that you find an opportunity to ask her if you can talk alone and then make it clear that you still want to be friends even if you doesn't 'like' you back. If she won't talk to you then I would say you should cut your losses and let her go. I know that's probably not what you want to hear, sorry.
