    But every time we would talk it was like he wanted me to... I tried so hard not to but I just couldn't help myself, with his blue eyes and red hair... He was the only thing I could think about.... He was consuming my life!! I felt that if I was going to love him he should know...

    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...

    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...

    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 didn't ask for it. Who does?

    I'm a pretty guarded person. I decided to let you in. You're an amazing friend. I wouldn't trade you for the world. I enjoy your company; you makes me laugh; your presence makes me smile; you're always there when I need you; you break me out of my shell. Then months later, I...

    Too Much For Me To Handle

    I have heard about heart brake, have seen it happening around me. I have been with guys before and have gone through break ups, yet what I have felt back then never even came close to what I feel today. I am in pain; my heart has been ripped out and stacked to a wall. Before...

    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...

    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...

    and she was the only person who I could really trust. We grew really close, and I actually thought we were dating for a little while when I reached freshman year and she reached eighth grade.. But.. The reason I say, "I thought" Is because she's always telling me how afraid she...

    You're the one, who always laughed the loudest. I am the one who would follow. You're the one who liked my stupid jokes, even when my punchlines made no sense, you still laughed. We could have an entire conversation with just one word being used, really. You always knew where...

    I fell in love with my gay best friend.

    We met at work and became very close because of some common friends. He was the guy who makes me laugh and was always there for me. The teasing from officemates intensified as days went by. He just went with it and sending me mixed signals making everything worse. I finally fell...

    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...

    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 never thought I could feel this way about

    anyone... It's crazy. How it all went down is what kind of breaks my heart. We'd flirt all the time, stay up late texting, make flirty/sexual jokes and even talk about how we should date a few times. But, when I finally came out and fully admitted how I feel, he pushed me away...

    He's been super close to me since sixth grade, and we've just clicked. Recently, over the past summer, we got really intimate, and we ended up exploring and experimenting with each other. He broke things off physically and dated a girl for two weeks; things didn't work out and...

    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...
