I Fell In Love With My Best Friend

    You got scared. I know you.

    I know you're scared. When you get scared you run because you don't want to get hurt again. I'm the same way. Sorry back to my story. Our story. Maybe because I was on night shift. Maybe it was because I washed laundry for a living. Maybe because I had my license but no wheels...

    I post under this title a lot

    because it's been one of the most insane, fast paced, wonderful, breathtaking experiences of my life. My best friend/boyfriend and I have only been together for a month and a half but we're more in love than I ever thought possible. It might be because we've been friends for so...

    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...

    My Husband, My Best Friend...

    I met my husband when I was 19, he was 26. I met him through a guy I was sleeping with (ironic I know). The guy I was sleeping with wanted to "test" me, and see if I would cheat on him. He brought his friend down to meet me; his mistake! We ended up staying up the entire night...

    I've known my best friend,

    I guess I could call her Amber, from ever since kindergarten. She has been more than a best friend to me always, we've been like soul mates: I know everything about her and she knows everything about me. Sadly, the last few years have been a slight down in our friendship: she...

    When I was living far away from home in a place

    I hated, and felt entirely isolated, I became good friends with someone whom I felt just "got" me. I didn't have to explain, she just understood. I don't know if it was because I was lonely and she was there, and gave me the time and attention I needed, or if I really did fall...

    I fell deeply in love with my best friend.

    I told her & she said she also liked me but I liked her more then she liked me. I gave up on her because she started talking to another guy & she changed 😞

    I fell in love with my best friend

    as well, she knows how I feel but it will never work, getting passed her is the hardest thing but it will be best for the both of us.

    It just happened. At first we didn't talk at all

    but one night we just starting talking and it lasted for hours. He's been my best friend since. Recently we just entered a "friends with benefits" type relationship & it started off fine. There was no awkwardness (all we really do is fool around, no sex) but when we're our other...

    I was cuddling with my boyfriend tonight

    and he said "I love you so much. Thank you for making me feel wanted and needed, you are the only one who makes me feel that" his parents love him but his older brother is not as much of a sensitive guy as he is and his parents I guess assume he is like his brother when he isn't...

    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...

    Worth a Try.

    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...
