I Want a Lover Who Is Also My Best Friend

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 54,792 People

    About a week and a half ago I broke up with my

    girlfriend. Before we were together we had been good friends for about six years so we were mostly just testing the waters to see if we felt any deeper connection to each other. I really like the idea of a best friend who eventually becomes a lover or even the other way around...

    I want someone I can trust.

    Someone I can tell my deepest darkest secrets to. Someone to make me smile and laugh each and everyday. Someone that can make me smile just by hearing their name. Someone I can hug and he will never let go, and fall asleep in his arms. Pillow fights is a must. Someone to hold my...

    I just want a boyfriend more

    than anything right now. I'm tired of the meaningless sex and random hookups. It makes me feel cheap and it's not a good feeling. I want to love somebody and be loved back equally.

    I want to meet a woman

    who will accept me for who I am. I want to be able to cherish someone who accepts me, pushes past our differences and is commuted to improving our relationship or friendship. I want a friend who will be my lover. The shoulder I can lean on and the rock I can plant my feet on. I...

    I'm currently feeling deeply depressed about my

    marriage. My husband and I have nothing in common besides our children. He has no idea how disconnected I've become. I feel very alone.

    I cant believe I'm posting this,

    but if you truely want a lover who is your best friend you need to become true best friends before you become lovers. This means waiting to have sexual intimacy until you have emotional intimacy. If you dont wait, move on to the next.

    I am lucky to say I have this,

    I think I won't ever be in a relationship.

    I soul-searched and realized that I am who I am, and there's no one who could change that. I think I don't deserve someone special in my life because of the principles I live with. I think, I'll have to conform to the society to get one because in order for you to have a healthy...

    What's better for a guy who's simple?

    Take him out to movies then stay outside for a while, grab a couple beers in a nice place with nice music (no hip hop, or twerking stuff), or go out and eat in a nice place? We're not a couple but I really like him and want to show him that girls can make pretty details too and...

    I like the Shel Silverstein book,

    "The Missing Piece Meets The Big O" because it's not about finding someone who COMPLETES you, rather you should round our your own corners (the missing piece) and just roll with another whole person (the big O)

    Lover, Here is a few things you need to know

    about me. First, I have a very bad tamper. Genetic links plus environmental spoiled. How's that sound. Second, I'm inexperience, which implies I'm potentially childish and possible stupidity. Choose wisely. I mean, seriously…

    I want to kiss and be kissed - long,

    sweet, hungry kisses. I want your arms around me, pressing me close. I want to feel your hands and mouth caressing the contours of my body. And I also want to be able to banter with you, match wits, talk about ideas. Am I just being greedy, or expecting too much?

    who I could feel safe and open with. Someone who my gestures and affections are not always seen as sexual. When I was in my late 20's I found the love of my life. When she was upset she came to me. When we had a fight we talked it out like friends. We did everything together...
