I Fell In Love With My Best Friend

    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...

    I am glad a lot of you are sharing your

    experiences with falling in love with your best friend. However, I "fell" in love with my best friend. Past tense. Unfortunately, things did not end well for me and him - mostly because I chose not to tell him since it never would've worked. I am glad though that others have had...

    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...

    but Ive known her for almost half of my life. 18 years is a long time to have a friend of the opposite sex. Weve talked about being together on a few occasions but right now is our opportunity. Were both single and weve been throwing the idea around. Weve even tried to kiss but...

    and only best friend I loved her. I emailed her a long letter explaining the times we spent together and what I've thought about her. Also what she put me through and the pain I felt. Now my love for her is over and I only love her as my best friend only. I needed to get this...

    My "Falling In Love With My Best Friend" story

    is pretty long so I'll try my hardest to sum it up. We met in the 9th grade. It took her a year after we met to confess her love for me. It took me 9 years to admit that my feelings were mutual. One day we were hang out, and I decided that it was time to be honest with her and...

    I think I probably have one of the worst

    experience with this. I fell in love with my best friend. I am a girl and she is a girl. We met when I was going through a break up. I was just out of the hospital after attempting suicide and I was still inclined to end my life. A few weeks after, she popped up and said hi...

    I am absolutely in love with my best friend.

    She is this amazing and beautiful woman who is so strong and smart. She makes me feel like I could conquer the world but if I didn't feel like it that day she would let me stay in bed snuggled up next to her under the covers. The thing is though I have loved her for a little bit...

    He was there when times were rough.

    We hit it off. We dated for a short period of time. And I fell even harder for him. Then one day he decided he just wanted to be friends because he valued our friendship so much more and the relationship would have ruined it all. I still love him and it's so hard to just be...

    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...

    But I can't be friends with somebody I truly

    love. It hurts too much. I drift away, fade into the darkness, fade into the mists of her mind, become a vague memory, and then all at once she never hears from me again. I never call her, when she call me I'm "to busy to talk". I'd rather be apart from her and content, then be...

    I Fell In Love With My Best Friend

    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...

    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...

    I was good friends with this guy once.

    I'd tell him everything I only trusted him. Then one day he just stopped talking to me. About 4-5 months later he tells me happy birthday so I texted him and asked why he hated me and he said he didn't. So we started talking and the next day we went to Starbucks and the mall. We...

    My best friend has been my boyfriend

    for the past 3 years. He is the sweetest person ever. I have an incurable illness, and so when we first started going out, he made up this story about how I'm a fallen angel, and I lost my wings, and that he'll try to find them for me, and when he does, I'll be cured. He's the...
