    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...

    We met on our first day at secondary school.

    We became good friends over time. I even went to her wedding! I never told her how I felt. She always seemed to have somebody else in mind when it came to love. But that's ok. I would rather have had her as a friend than nothing. After I got together with my then wife. She didnt...

    I've had a bestfriend

    since 7th grade. we dated in 8th grade and lasted for a year and a 5 months. We are now in 10th grade. we ended up breaking up because we fought to much. I'm so inlove with her. She loves me just as much she tells me. Atleast she's still my bestfriend.

    They say falling in love is a choice.

    That we need to choose to fall in love with someone everyday if we want the relationship to work. But the problem is, it's not just a choice you make. It's a choice that both of you have to make, both have to agree on. to agree on to love one another. But what happens if the...

    I knew my best friend in Belgium from

    when we were little girls. But when we were teenagers I started to love her. She did too and we had sex but I did not like the feeling. Then she started to like boys and we did not feel like friends so we stopped talking. I miss her love and her friendship.
