    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...

    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...

    Pssst

    You're the one, who always laughed the loudest. I am the one who would follow. You're the one who liked my stupid jokes, even when my punchlines made no sense, you still laughed. We could have an entire conversation with just one word being used, really. You always knew where...

    I hate wanting you when you only see me

    as a friend. I'm just a girl and so are you. But still, I want you. All day long you gave me pieces of you! You shared your secrets. Secrets meant to be kept under wraps. You gave me attention. I needed your attention. I needed attention today. So I took what I needed from you...

    I've knew him since 4th grade

    but actually got to meet him in 6th (he was in 7th). I have a crush on him since 6th grade. Since I've started high school (2 years ago) we've gotten closer. I've notice that every bus ride home he would want to sit with me. He's adorkable and I would never want to trade him.

    I promised myself that I would try

    and not let this happen again but yet again I have a hopeless crush on someone I have no chance with but I know she's better off with someone else and that's why I'm gonna smile like there's nothing wrong, pretend like everything is alright, act like it's all perfect, even...

    I am really tired at the moment,

    getting frustrated and depressed. I know I should not love him- that's really painful to me. He is my best friend. We can understand each other in every moment without a word which we have been in such a deep and stable friendship for nearly 7 to 8 years. I realised that I fell...

    My best friend makes me laugh

    and smile when I want to cry. He has no idea how I feel and how much a little part of me dies when he talks about other men / women. We talk about everything but this has got to me. I'd rather fight then walk away if someone says a bad word about him.

    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...

    Homophobes Beware

    How old was I? Eleven? Twelve I think. He - two years older than I was likely fourteen. He was spending the night. He is like no one else I have ever known. Like a puppy dog at times, with boundless energy, even before he started drinking coffee. He has a sweet openness - a...

    It was a disaster when I first met him.

    He was the first guy to let my tears fall during our first days in second year high school.who would think that from treating him as ENEMY, he became my BEST FRIEND when we turned fourth year students. Most of our classmates witnessed how we've been very close that it came...

    I Fell In Love With My Best Friend

    I've kept this to myself for a while now, and I guess I just need to get it out, you know, before it destroys me. I could turn to a friend or a family member but I just can't conjure the courage. So I guess turning to strangers was the next best thing. P.S. If the girl of my...

    I fell in love with my best friend. We've known each other since middle school, about 5 years now. We grew extremely close during high school and we had recently graduated. I told him about a year ago that I had liked him, but he kindly rejected me. We are still very close...

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