    I'm a 25 year old guy,

    and this is happening to me and my best friend of 12 years. I know there is a rift in our relationship, and other people can see it, but we just can't seem to get things back to the way they were. I think I know where it started, though. I invited him on a roadtrip to SoCal last...

    Jake,Today was another stupid day,

    but I appreciate the sunset you sent. Did you see my face when I cracked the screen on my laptop? I guess the crack isn't so bad, but I'm noticing it now. Probably because it's the least of my worries right now. Did you see me laugh when I was shopping with Tiffany? Today...

    I used to have a best friend.

    We met in primary school at the age of 10. There were a few of us in a group but she was always my closest friend. We didn't live that far from each other so we walked to school together every morning. Oh the things we used to talk about... Most girls our age would talk about...

    My husband and I used to be best friends.

    We were very close. In the last few years it feels like he's just my boss. Someone that I report to and constantly disappoint. I really miss our bond. It's making me so sad and lonely. I have no other friends, he was it. I still would rather be with him than without him.
