Just 5 Months

You know that feeling when you meet someone and you feel that you've known that person since the day you were born?
I know that feeling.

What about the feeling of absolute and passionate love for someone you've met for less than a year?
I know that feeling too.

And for me, both of these feelings are true to the same person.

I cannot explain the uncontrollable feelings I have for him. In only 5 months, we became the best of friends. But I long to be more than..."friends."

I love that he doesn't care what other people think of him. I love that he just takes life day by day without a second thought. I love that he listens to The Dodos and Family of the Year. I love that he has such an optimistic personality no matter how bad things are.

"The most important respect is self-respect," he once told me. At the time, I laughed at his cliche but true statement. But on a more serious note, it's quotes like these that make me love him even more.

It doesn't matter how long you've known someone. You could know them for a day, a year, a decade, or even a lifetime and it doesn't necessarily mean that you can love him.

In 5 months, I made a best friend and found someone I love unconditionally. Only problem is, I don’t think he feels the same way.

Why do you think he doesn't feel the same way? In general it's better if the guy makes the first move. Why don't you flirt with him and see what happens? What I love about your post is that you know the things you like about this person. Why not tell him what you like about him? If he feels the same, he'll probably respond. Take it slowly though. If he really likes you, it will show in him not rushing to what's on a man's mind (Freud).
