    I can't find anyone. I haven't had a date in almost a year. I have no idea how to meet people. I have no idea how to speak to people. Things are really hard and it would be nice to find someone who would make it seem less so. I sleep wrapped up in my sheets because I don't like...

    I Broke Up With My Best Friend. (Long, But A Good Read.)

    I also really liked hanging out with his friends. In fact, you could say I have no other friends except them. As my relationship soured and my feelings changed, I started to see a particular friend of his differently. I learned more about him. The day I realized I was really...

    I'm a Gay guy. I'm in love with my best friend.

    He's an FTM Trans Guy. I liked him before he transitioned when he was still publicly a girl, but I've been convinced since I was 14 that I'm gay, and so I buried my feelings for a year. They came back again stronger before he came out as Trans, and now he's come out I can't get...
