I Have A Best Friend Of The Opposite Gender

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,334 People

    I still remember the moment I decided to trust

    him. My thought process was something along the lines of "Oh, **** it" - and it's been one of the best decisions of my life. I have never had a friendship like this. I can tell him anything and not be judged, and I know that he feels the same about me. We help each other and...

    I don't understand why boys

    and girls can't be best friends without everybody thinking that something's going on. It's really annoying. There's nothin wrong with having a best friend of the opposite gender.

    Everyone always thinks we go out

    but we don't. I have a feeling he thinks I like him 'in that way'. I always have my arm around him or hold his hand but this is just simply saying "I'm not ashamed to be around you, I want people to know that we are inseparable." Which we are inseparable. We've had people who...

    Jacob! XD I love that guy.

    Lol It always confuses me when people say a guy and a girl can't be "just friends" because one of them will catch feeling for the other. Seriously? Because I'm sure a gay guy will definitely fall in love with me. *eye roll* >.>

    Such A Goof

    My best friend is a guy. And he is the first friend where I don't feel like I am second best to someone else and could never compare or I am just someone to pick and choose from a crowd when they feel like it. We both love psychology and philosophy and mainly thinking. Which is...

    Best Friend Is An Understatement

    He fills my face with bliss. He calms my mind with hope. He fills my heart with love. He touches my soul with faith... There is a gentle, inviting belonging within him. And I always want to be in his life. He deserves everything he could ever dream of.

    I do. And we're perfect together.

    Not in a dating term, but on a brotherly and fraternal love. I'm not sure. But now that he started dating I don't know if I dislike the girl because he's dating her, or because she's annoying. Probably a bit of both. I just miss his full on attention on me. :(

    We came to an issue of since we started dating people we don't have time for each other. I hate his girlfriend cause she got on bad terms with me about my ex. And my best friend slightly dislikes my current boyfriend cause he's taken most of my time now.

    He is the best friend anyone could ever have.

    He'll bend over backwards for you without even blinking! He is now my boyfriend and we still act like we're besties. Hopefully it'll never happen but, if we ever split up I know we'll still be this close.

    Yes, girls and guys can be friends without

    being a couple. I don't get how some people think it can't happen. Anyway, my friend Kaimana is so weird and funny but he's great. He's nice and has his perv moments but yeah. And if you read this, Kai, I am not going to call you senpai.
