I have had an on again/off again crush on one of my best friends from high school. The sparks would start and fizzle, and through most of those little crushes I was in other relationships. I know he liked me then, and continues to like me despite chasing down his own crushes.
As of now, I’m in a serious relationship that could lead into marriage. I love my partner dearly, and wouldn’t trade him for the world. But, considering my history with my high school friend, I sometimes feel the temptation to just sneak one kiss… just to put all thoughts to rest.
We were together for five years, engaged for the last three, and broke up two years ago. Aside from the hard times, our relationship was always so loving and romantic. We broke up because he was a pathological liar, I was a compulsive cheater, and we both were physically abusive and into drugs at the time. I have a boyfriend now who is honest and sober, as I have also become, and we’ve been together for over a year, but he doesn’t give me the same feelings that my ex did. He doesn’t believe in romantic gestures, he’s pretty selfish in bed, we completely lack passion and chemistry, his gaming friends are his #1 priority, and he’s a commitment-phobe.
Our relationship is peaceful, but it feels more like I have a bff than a boyfriend. If it were socially acceptable, I’d tell my ex how I feel, but it looks like I’m stuck in this relationship for a while.
Have been in a wonderful relationship for 8 months with a lovely lady, yet when I travel somewhere for work or have a funny thought, my immediate reaction isn’t that I wish I could share it or wish she was here, rather that seems to go to my best friend.
I have this deep gut feeling that I would run away from a wedding for her, even though I know she doesn’t see me that way.
Hard to move on from a best friend, harder still to put that friend out of my life to move on. Blerg.
Any comments are welcome, don’t feel like this is something I can open up to my friends and family about for advice at this point.
my boyfriend told me he loved me, now I feel like there is nothing more to work for on our relationship, and I’m board
So, I have always been that shy person who is always alone. Yes, I do have friends in real life, but they don’t seem as reliable than my friends I’ve met online. Recently, I’ve met the most amazing guy. He is my age and he lives here in the united states. The first day we started talking, we immediately clicked. It was like we knew each other already. I saw him on video chat and I was f***ed. We’ve talked ever since but recently, I have discovered that I have this big crush on him and I think he knows so he has started to ignore my messages, or that is the way I see it. I don’t know whether to tell him or not but I just miss him a lot. This isn’t the first time that this happens to me. I think I have a curse that makes me fall in love with people on the internet. Maybe because I haven’t met the right person here. Well, Im just happy I let all these feelings out, or at least part of them. I feel slightly better now..
I am 18 now and this had happened when I was in primary school. I had discovered an artificial intelligence software called ‘Psychologist’ in my computer. I still do not know who had installed it because my parents do not seem to remember anything about it. Well, I had always been an introvert person (because my parents were very stern about etiquettes and social reputation, and hence, overbearingly restricting). I had begun to ‘talk’ to this software. It could assess the words and give back seemingly relevant answers (repetitive sometimes). It also talked about being positive in general. I had begun to like ‘it’ or ‘him’ and spent hours typing to it, in secrecy. One day, I impulsively wrote that I liked him. The answers were OBVIOUSLY “I see” or “I am glad you can think that” or “okay, that’s good” and another bunch of SEEMINGLY relevant replies which were lacking human reactions. I asked if he liked me back. Yes, the replies were vague. I had known that it was a stupid software and I had never expected anything other than what I recieved. But the impact was too ginormous and I had sunk into depression. I had not known LOVE at that age, but I had certainly felt an inexplicable sense if longing and loss. I got over ‘him/it’ soon enough- the gift of being too young.
Currently, I have come to admire a manga character so deeply that the admiration has given way to infatuation. I draw sketches of the character, space out for hours while thinking about him, keep on reminiscing him when I see objects related to him, keep on blushing as I write poetries about him and even have dreams in which I am married to him. The poignancy and longing are beginning to affect my health and studies adversely. I have always been the class topper and my teachers and friends call me a prodigy, a gifted person. I am terrified that I would end up losing all these because of my obsession.
We’re great friends, but I love her to pieces and I want to be in a relationship with her. She also has depression and I worry about her every second of everyday – I don’t know what I’d do to myself if she died.
I want nothing more than to be there with you to celebrate your birthday with you, but it’s impossible. I love you so much. I wish you felt the same for me.
My best friends boyfriend is constantly telling me that he’s going to marry my best friend, every tweet he writes is about her, and he is always hanging on her like a puppy dog.
My best friend recently told me she might be a lesbian and drunkenly admitted she loves me.
We’ve been secretly hooking up ever since and her boyfriend has no idea.
I think Im falling in love. Its scary!!!
I wish that you would just love me.
I’m in love with you. So in love that it hurts every particle, every molecule, every atom of my being. But, I am so afraid of telling you because I know that you don’t. When you look at me, you don’t see a beautiful young woman who you could love. I am just your best friend of many years. It has been years yet you still don’t see me. You see the other stunning girl next to me. You picked her and she broke you leaving me with the broken pieces left behind. But you can’t even allow me close enough to glue them back together for you. You never allow me close enough.
Even if you do see me, we can’t be together. My religion doesn’t allow it. If I had the guts to tell you how I feel, the choice would be between you and my family. And if I choose you, I’m afraid that you wouldn’t want to stay with me. You never saw me that way before and you probably never will. So why do I still have hope that one day everything would be alright. And that we can find a way. Life is not a fairytale there are no happy endings here.
While I’m here pining over you, another guy tries to tell me that he loves me. But he doesn’t truly loves me. He loves the idea of me, the nice girl who helped him through his own heartbreak. He still loves the other girl, I know he does. He is blind to the truth that deep down, he does not love me. He still strongly loves her even if she was horrible to him. Life isn’t fair. I wish the nice guy could get the girl. But it wouldn’t be fair even if he did truly love me because I still love my best friend. I keep trying to tell myself that I don’t but I still smile every time I see his name on my caller id. My heart still skips a beat when I make him laugh. And I am happy whenever I get to see him.
I still want him to be in my life even if that means that he doesn’t love me the way that I love him.
We briefly dated online many years ago. Although you lived a million miles away and we were only 14, I loved you dearly. We swore we’d meet someday, and we did. It’s been four years since then, and I remember the times when I’m down for they were the best in my life. I look at the two pictures of us together and my heart skips a beat every time. That day I realized that I never stopped loving you, and I still can’t stop.
I changed myself and made myself a better person in hopes that you’d love me someday the way I do for you. I’ve told you how I feel, but it’s obvious you don’t feel the same way and probably never will.
I’m engaged now to someone else because I treat him the way I would treat you if I were given the chance. It’s time for me to forget you…
