    She's choosing her bf over me

    and she told me that he told her to tell me that she was never going to talk to me ever again. So her "plan" is to act mad at each other in front of him and behind his back to be friends again..

    I love someone. She loves me.

    We'd die for each other. If I had to choose between the two of us on who could live or not I'd immediately choose her. She is the only reason I haven't killed myself yet. If she died, I'd kill myself immediately. She is the most beautiful person I know. She doesn't judge me. I...

    Best Friend To Painful Memory

    It sucks to realize that the friendship doesn't hold the same weight to everybody. Some people can have many friends they're not very close to. I can't imagine that. I can only have one or two friends at a time. To me, friendship is one of the deepest, most important, and most...

    she doesn't talk to me unless there is something very necessary, I always start conversations and she ends them, so I don't talk to her anymore because I've understood that she doesn't want me to. Maybe she thinks I became boring because everyone left me, but I loved her so much...
