I Want a Lover Who Is Also My Best Friend

    I think I finally need to face the facts

    that I am not meant to be in any kind of relationship. All the ones I go after often leave me before they give me a chance. I try so hard for anyone and everyone but I hardly ever get anything but pain and sorrow. It's not the people I go after because I always go after...

    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?

    I'll only ever have one true friend.

    .. The only one who's been there for me when I felt weak, who's got my back, who's always been at my side, who never talks back at me. The only one who I've shared my dreams with, has been through all my ups and downs, is willing to hold all my weight, and keeps me from...

    I am lucky to say I have this,

    my lover is definitely my best friend. I joined EP almost a year ago (under a different profile). My first profile was very sexual in nature and I made a lot of friends and exchanged photos etc. Then in the middle of last year, my stepdaughter attempted suicide, the way I...

    I want a best friend

    who is a boy. Maybe not a lover but a best friend who is a boy. Who will understand me, care for me for who I am, thinks I'm beautiful, and listens to all my problems. I've never had luck with boys so for once I want a best friend who is a boy my age or a couple years older...

    I found myself having an affair with a man

    who has a girlfriend. I wanted it to be just that one time because I get attached, but he kept instigating and I kept seeing him. He has been out of touch now that his girl is back from a very long vacation and my heart is breaking. I know what I did was not the smartest, but I...

    Do men make good best friends to women?

    Are there too many differences and inconsistencies? Are the uncertainties too profound?

    Omg, I want a gay best friend

    because that would be amazing to have a best friend that is a boy who would understand you and won't be so dramatic as girls and won't fall in love with you!! 😍😍😍

    I still live with him He cheated

    and lied. He hurt me more than anyone ever has. I still see him as my Dom. He's in the next room and mikes away I wish he'd never met her, or had the decency to let go of me while they fooled around.

    Friendship is not about finding the right

    person but, Creating the right relation. It’s not how much we care in the beginning but how much we care till the end.

    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...

    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.

    but I'd like to have a best friend who's a girl. I'm sad about a couple things that have happened over the last few months that I'm not comfortable sharing publicly but if someone out there wants to talk to me I'd appreciate it if you'd message me.
