I have known you for three years now. I don’t even understand how we became friends but it’s one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I only see you for a couple of months each year but I know that I don’t want to be only friends. Every time I see you, my heart starts beating quickly and I can’t control it.
…but, we are only best friends and our relationship as best friends is stopping us from being together. It’s killing me. Every time we hug but don’t kiss, a little part of my heart shrivels. I can’t stand the thought of losing you at the same time. I’m scared of what’s to come if we do become more than friends. Will we be able to recover and become best friends again if something happens? I value the time we spend together bowling and stargazing above anything else. I love getting texts from you in the middle of the night telling me that you miss me.
But if I feel all these things, then why shouldn’t I just tell you instead of sending it to millions of other people on the internet. I want to take a risk. I’ll never know what we could’ve been. I think we would have the best times of our lives, but you, you want to be friends. I can see that you avoid any and all possible moments that we can have. This is the hardest part. What do I have to do to make you realize that you can tell me how you feel and that we can take this risk together.
