I Am In Love With My Best Friend

    Do you believe in fate?

    I do. I was never the woman who dreamed of marriage or starting a family. I never really got insecure with a man I was dating or experienced jealousy when it came to other women. I didn't really have the urge to 'protect what's mine' kind of attitude but with you, I want to...

    as "Rose" Rose has been is a relationship with her boyfriend for three years and they are inseparable. I really think they are in it for the long haul. Rose is also one of the biggest homophobes out there. I have fallen for Rose. And I have fallen hard. I can't talk to her...

    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

    Invisible

    I am invisible to you, do you not see how much i love you? Do you close your eyes and wish what i say was a dream? Do you even know how much i love you? Do you comprehend just how much pain you put me threw? Do you want me to even be here? You say you love me and you couldn't...

    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...

    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...

    Update #5: so I did it.

    I told her I love her and why. I basically poured my heart out and it left her speechless. Then she told me she knew. She figured it out weeks ago. Then it got really awkward and quiet and she said she was going to sleep. I have to give her time. I get it was so much to tell her...

    Love Is...

    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...

    So I've had this female best friend

    for over two years now. She lives rather far from me (about 6 states over) and I completely trust her. Her and I have been able to be completely honest to each other about everything. Even when I say a small lie I go "wait that was a lie." I've been thinking more and more about...

    She's probably the greatest thing to ever
