    I have a crush on my best friend to a degree

    where I believe that he should be all mine, I want him all to myself, I don't anyone else to be able to talk to him, or look at him, or think about him, or touch him. I want him all for myself, just as a friend or more, but nothing less. ... I don't know, im weird.
