    I'd be at work and I'd get dizzy.

    I began throwing up driving down the road. I couldn't think straight. I was told that sometimes I'd go into work and I'd be yellow. I was afraid to tell you. I'd go to the doctors and the tests would come back clean. I thought I was going crazy. My muscles felt like their was...

    Unanswered Prayers

    I fell in love with her the second I saw her. She was tall, lanky, pale, with cropped dark hair and a contagious smile. She worked at the bookstore I frequented daily on my breaks at work. Our first conversation was about a book I pretended I needed as a gift. It was all just so...

    I guess it was during the party

    when I fell in love with Alice. She was my best friend since Kindergarten, so I never really had a crush on her. But last week, a friend invited our entire high school choir class to come and have an awesome party. There were lots of great foods and games. Finally, we decided to...

    This experience really sucked.

    It was literally the worst thing that could've happened in my life. I fell for my best friend. So yeah typically in every close friendship one starts falling for the other. Sadly in mine I was the one that fell for him. I was debating whether or not to tell him...then...

    Dating someone who was initially a best friend

    for almost a year now and it's working out perfectly! Since we already knew each other and what we were getting into, we really know how to deal with each other and support each other.

    Ruined A Perfectly Good Friendship - Live And Learn

    Knew this girl when I was in my early 20's (we met when I was 20 she 18). We went out about a half a dozen times over three-ish years. We talked on the phone periodically about life, work, family nonsense, etc. Gradually we built up our talk frequency to about three or four...

    I've done this three times in my life.

    But have never acted upon it. I know people say you shouldn't because it alters the basis for your relationship. But it's a strange notion that you might love this person with all your heart. Yet know that if you become bf/gf. That it's possible you might lose a friend too!

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

    Really, I don't know why I'm doing this.  Maybe it's because I really have no one else to talk to about it.  I guess resorting to random people isn't really a good idea, but hey, it's worth a try.   I've been friends with her for about three years now.  We...
