    It Happened So Fast!

    I was in college for the first time, orientation weekend. There she was, 5' 4" and an upperclassman. She was in her third year of college and hot hot hot. I was new and only had a few friends. We were introduced on Labor Day Weekend. For several months we laughed, joked, hung out...

    Around October of her sophomore year at

    boarding school, that's when she started crushing on him. He was a grade ahead of her. Upperclassmen. What caught her attention was his playfulness. He had a serious side. But, he was easy-going. Easy to talk to. Kept things interesting with his sense of humor. Along with that...

    Why does he wasn't someone else?

    He says he loves me but I know he doesn't mean it the way I do... I want him to love me like a boyfriend, not as my best friend... What does "she" have, that I don't? I mean, I'm his same age, I love all the things he does and I'm the perfect height for him... "She's" two years...

    I didn't ask for it. Who does?

    I'm a pretty guarded person. I decided to let you in. You're an amazing friend. I wouldn't trade you for the world. I enjoy your company; you makes me laugh; your presence makes me smile; you're always there when I need you; you break me out of my shell. Then months later, I...

    We met online and quickly became rl besties.

    He didn't tell me he had a gf until after I fell for him. I enjoy his company very much, but it hurts to hang out at the same time.

    It's happened a few times

    because it's such a natural progression, yet it always ends in alienation and heartbreak. That's why I don't even keep girls as friends anymore. I promised myself after the last time I wouldn't let it happen again. If I feel an attraction starting, I tell them straight-up that...

    Well, there are some things I can't say here,

    due to the fact that it would give some people my name or the name of my friend, but this is what happened. First of all, I'm an oddity at my high school, I spend a majority of my time reading and writing research notations, or emailing, calling, and texting people...

    He fell in love with me fast.

    Way too fast. It was crazy. We're best friends- we would talk to each other all the time. I hated that he was in love with me. Why? I didn't get it. I figured that I was just some other girl. He'd lose interest. But he didn't. He would listen with bright brown eyes whenever we...

    The void I felt as I fell apart was,

    at least to what I could imagine in my mind, probably equal to what you felt when I'd left you in the hospital. I began to feel very sad. I missed you. I missed my family. I knew I messed up somewhere and with what seemed like my last days I thought, "where did I mess up?" Their...

    The Feeling Was Always Mutual, But Something Unknown Always Stopped Us.

    When I first looked upon her she was sitting on her own huddled on a low bench with her face in a book, she was quite and withdrawn and it was evident to me that she had gone through some form of trauma. People said she was strange but I thought she was an evil angel waiting to...
