    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...

    You ever meet someone

    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 was just after being severely bullied by my

    best friends. My self esteem was non existent, I had no friends and I had no hope. She sat next to me one day in art class - not out of choice, she was changing classes and the seat next to me was the only one free. She was... Open. Funny. Cute. I was a girl who had never had a...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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.

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

    It was a disaster when I first met him.

    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.
