    My best friend just told me she wants to be

    together. She wants to marry, have kids, everything, dog, cat, picket fence. As much as i want to be best friends with my lover, i just dont feel for her like that. We could have a great life together, but i know i would be settling. We tried once long ago, and it ruined us for...

    Having someone as your lover

    and your best friend makes all the difference in a relationship. I'm glad I had that opportunity to share life and love with my deceased husband. We were each other's everything and after losing him, I never had that experience with anyone else. I cherish those memories of him...

    I have been fortunate enough to have found both.

    When one chapter closes another one begins. For me I spent years focused on the wrong person. Always feeling I had lost a part of me each time I lost him. Little did I know at the time that my best friend was my true soul's companion. We were recently married, religiously...

    Distance means nothing

    when someone means everything. i believe that love is much more powerful than anything on the earth.... & then these distances does not matter.... humans are made for each other and i know my partner is somewhere and i have to find her :)

    isnt that what the basis of any kind of

    relationship is?- friendship?! well, at least to me it is. before being a bf/ Gf it's important to first be good friends. one looks for companionship and friendship in a relationship, the love grows stronger..and that's what I need a best friend for a lover!

    This is more than just sex,

    this is something deeper. To me making love and having sex is different and if I am to have a lover then I need to know this person truly loves me and we should be best friends. This has yet to happen to me, but I have faith that I will finally be with that person who I can...

    and he gives me all emotional support that I need when I was very sick (for about a year). He is 7 years old younger than me. I never met a guy that adores me as he does. I became confused about my feelings for him. Therefore, I decided to stop contacting him(we are now...

    Sometimes we need to simply be there.

    .. not to fix anything or do anything in particular, but just to let us feel we are supported and cared about.

    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.

    If we can't be idiots together,

    and do normal friend things, for example: Sleep overs where we watch movies, make forts, eat junk food, etc etc. Our relationship isn't going to be fun. I want someone I can run around in pajamas with. Someone I can go camping with. Where sex isn't a major thing. Yes, okay. I...

    I can't live without you.

    I would breathe the air, and my heart would beat, but I would not feel the joy of life. My dreams would be lost like a leaf carted away by a storm. I would gaze at the stars without appreciating the way they light up the sky. I would pass the roses in bloom without noticing...
