Ask yourself, is it worth throwing away a friendship if things don't go right? Or put another way, is the potential reward worth the potential risk to you.
My personal experience in this area has not been good. I tried telling the woman of my dreams how I felt, we were friends at the time. I didn't lay it all out at once, I dropped hints for nearly a year before asking her to dinner. She didn't call or even send a text wishing me happy birthday or Merry Christmas last year, something she had done the 2 years prior to my letting the cat out of the bag. I ask myself every day if it was worth it, in this case, yes it was. I don't think I could live with myself if I hadn't tried, though I still wish we were friends.
My best friend however was in a similar situation & they became a great couple for nearly 3 years in the late 80's. Although they eventually broke up, they stayed friends afterward & still talk a couple times a year.

and is it worth ending with neither a friend or a relationship /friendship to alter the status quo!
there is no hard and fast rule here in the end you have to do what you feel comfortable with
