I Fell In Love With My Best Friend

    I was 17. He went to another school

    but we had gone to the same middle school and remained friends throughout high school. I never knew why people described love the way they did... That they fell in love slowly and never knew that they loved each other until one certain moment. But now I do. I was in the midst of...

    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'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...

    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...

    We met four years ago

    and he had just started dating my best friend at the time. We hit it off over both of us liking our coffee light and sweet with French vanilla. I told him that night that if he ever hurt her, I would kill him. As the months went on we got really close. I could talk to him about...

    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...

    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...

    because I'd rather be your best friend til the end than to risk losing you forever.

    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...

    Marriage There are two kinds of things in life,

    basically: logical, and emotional. Emotionally driven things tend to turn out badly, for me anyway. I’ve been in love 7 or more times, and divorced twice. Strong emotion is not sustainable. Successful acquisition of practical things – like deciding which vehicle to purchase...

    I'm a girl and so is my best friend.

    For me, that's natural. She knows I'm bisexual. I hardly talk about girls around her because I get embarrassed, but she knows. She's straight. She has a boyfriend that she likes a whole lot and I barely get to see her anymore. We've been friends for a few years now. All I want...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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'm in love with my best friend.

    She's perfect in every single way. Even though she's not straight, I could never tell her how I feel. She's so far out of my league she would never think of me in a romantic way. To top it all off, I have a boyfriend. I don't feel much affection for him when I'm not with him. I...
