    He Was My Best Friend Before He Became My Lover

      Shane was my best friend. We would talk on the phone for hours, chat on yahoo every morning and sometimes at night too. I could tell him anything, and he understood. He was there for me in ways no one else in my life has ever been.    Then we became lovers. We...

    Friendships Fade Over Time

    I am in my early 30s. Is it normal to feel that friendships have changed since my college days and early 20s? I feel like I need my friends less and less in life. I do not have as many friends as I use to in my college days and late 20s, but I feel like I have come to accept...

    One of my first few close friends on EP.

    ...and although our friendship is only 2 months old, I truly believed that this person is so genuine and felt a closeness that I never felt before. But looking back, I feel I should have acted more maturely and not taken anyone's words so seriously. I have learnt my lesson and...

    When I make friends it tends to be

    for life. Partly that would be because I let very few people close enough to be what I truly call a friend. I think more and more of one I lost some months ago though. Really a true friend, but we had our differences and grievances and sadly I had to let go. Now that I've spent...

    Can't Go Back

    Aging, alone and reflective, I have found that the sadness I carry is not that of a grieving widow, but rather that of a hurt lover. I made an egregious error in falling in love with a dear friend while married. My marriage was in shambles, as well as his, and we had known each...

    Could That Be Our End?

    Just recently, a friendship that I didn't expect to form suddenly came to be, for only 48 hours, and then it was gone. The whole thing wasn't just for 48 hours, but months, due to other circumstances and factors, but to my pleasant surprise, there was a sudden, favorable change...

    Two Butterflies.......

    Watch with me, the butterflies dancing by, until the journey's end. Not knowing where their travels lead, in light and love, my friend. Flecks of light, across the azure sky, gently they descend. Settle weary wings on your open hand, in faith and trust, my friend. Carry our...

    A true friend is someone who is like a sibling only it's not blood that ties you. A true friend cherishes every moment they spend with you.
