    Last month I realized I had strong feelings

    for my best friend, and some weeks ago her and I had a talk about it. We understood that despite that we are good friends, we are too different from one another, and I was the only one who felt this way. We still want to be friends, but the best thing we could do was to take a...

    I’ve known a guy for about 10 years,

    through a marriage in our family. I am pretty close to his side of the family but always closest to him. He’s understood me more than anyone I know, and I’ve gone to him for a lot of things I couldn’t go to my girl friends or boyfriends about. I’ve had a thing for him...

    Kinda sucks. I know her better

    than she knows herself, and she tells me that all the time. It's like we connect on a level that her boyfriend couldn't possible comprehended. I would know how to love her, emotionally and physically. We have stimulating conversations, she used to call me every night and I'm not...

    I'm in love with one of my best friends

    and I'm afraid to tell him. I've known Chase, as I'll call him, for over a year now and he's been there for me through some of the toughest times in my life. He's a selfless, laid-back kind of guy and he treats me better than most of the people in my life. When I first met...

    We weren't best friends at first, but ever since I met her, I've been falling deeper and deeper into love with her, and have since become best friends with her. I trust no other as much as I trust her, and there is no one I feel closer to. Lucky me, I have her as my best friend...

    I'd do anything for her.

    She's been with me as my greatest ally since I ended up surviving my suicide attempt. Through all of the **** that my last ex put me through and even now when I'm nervous to go back to school. We can talk about anything and I mean anything. She knows what hurts me the most and...

    Well see. You talk to someone everyday.

    You laugh together. Cry together. You share stories about your day. Your family. The activities you enjoy doing as hobbies. You talk about music and books and movies. You find all the things you have in common along with some things you don't. You know all their ins and outs...

    Wish She Felt The Same Way

    I am in love with my best friend. She knows it, but does not feel the same way. When I am around her, my day brightens and I feel like life is perfect. I know it will never be, but when I think about it, it hurts deep inside. When I see her smile and laugh, it brings up those...

    I know he cares for me,

    but I really wish he'd love me like I love him. We would make such a great couple, but it just isn't meant to be... sucks balls... hurts as hell, seeing him with others. But having him in my life as a great friend is better than a life without him.

    She is always there for me.

    Everyone else gets pushed away when I have a breakdown. I have breakdowns at least twice every 3 months. She is the only one who doesn't even get any further from me. She stays right there by my side. If I wake her up when I need someone to talk to, she doesn't get mad because I...

    her. We'd tell each other anything and everything. She'd tell me about her day, what she did, and she'd tell me about anything that had her upset, worried, happy, afraid, and I loved it. I loved being able to have someone who could open up to me and someone I could open up to...

    hardest things for me to ever have to do. I can't tell him how I feel. I can't lose him. He's the only friend I have left. I love him so much. I don't mind this torture.

    Now love is a dense and solid body, it’s limbs, those of a younger man: soft and sinuous, and princely. Love is a long face with a strong, square jaw. Dimples: love resides within those recesses. Love is two bright, dark eyes - the one punctuated by the brush stroke of a...
