    Because I Can't Tell Her.

    I haven't been really myself lately. Nothing comes into mind aside from work & responsibilities but you and her. I've lost my taste in life and I cannot blame it on you. This is my own doing. I have to set myself free. I know the answers anyway, the mind knows it well but the...

    My high school buddy

    and best friend. We have known each other for over 30 years and get together when we can. I told him about 6 months ago that I love to crossdress but am too wary of going out in public by myself. I showed him some pictures and he was pretty speechless and bit freaked out. I...

    To me it is sort of a prerequisite

    that your one true love is also your best friend.

    Well I finally gained the courage to tell her.

    She turned me down. I knew there was a big possibility that she would say no, but it still hurts

    We only just got together a few months ago,

    but we've been best friends for a couple years. Sometimes it's kind of hilarious. After a fun date or something, he'll text me later and start gushing about it like I wasn't there the whole time. Haha....oh man. What a gift. This guy is great.

    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...

    I met a guy a year and a half ago in Boston.

    He was really cool and we kept in touch via Skype and texting. I'm American and he's Australian. And over the last few months I've come to realize I have feelings for him. But he lives on the other side of the world and I don't know if he has feelings for me too.

    I met him 2 years ago in school

    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...

    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...

    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...

    When we met our similarities were shocking.

    We can finish each other's sentences and say what the other is thinking before we actually do. We laugh over squabbles we've had because they are usually over silly things and the fact that we are both so stubborn. I fell in love with her early in our friendship and told her...
