    I fell in love with my best friend- the problem is that we are both married to different people and have families of our own.  We tried to make it work and be able to stay friends but it just hurt us both too much.  I'm so sad and it will be so hard not hearing his...

    I"m Sorry But Our Friendship Is Over!

    I said good bye and not in a nice way! I'm just frustrated and it's not all you!  It's just not fair that I do all the work and all you do is keep saying what if! Well F*** the what if's! I can't take it I just can't take it.

    I Said Goodbye to My Best Friend

    I didn't want to, but I just felt I had to do it.  It's a long story that goes back 6 years ago, but would take too long to tell it.  But for the past several months everytime I talk to my best friend she sounds like she has not interest in me or my conversation. ...

    Letting You Go Was Harder Than You'll Ever Know

    I have had many friends through out my life. People passing through, staying awhile, and then moving on,  Its not anything new really.  Usually it just happens on it own. Naturally, people just grow apart and take different paths.  This time it was different.  Not to long ago...

    Separate Paths

    We met in grad school.  We had similar research interests, similar goals, similar tastes in music, and we even drove the same kind of car!  We hit it off very well and became quite close over the course of two years or so.  I came to love and respect him.  I...

    It's been a long time
