I remember when I found out I couldn’t have you, because you weren’t attracted to girls. I cried for weeks because I had never felt this way about anyone before. But, I made myself work through it and turn it into a platonic love and just be friends because I couldn’t lose your friendship. It was hard, but it happened, and I don’t have those feelings for you anymore.
Now we’re best friends, and I do love you with my whole heart. There’s no feelings of a crush, I’m not overwhelmed by any desire to kiss you- my soul just loves yours. You’re one of the best things that ever happened to me. And I wonder- will I ever have this with anyone else? Will I ever have a best friend like this that I can actually date- someone who knows the worst of me and stays, someone to have 3 hour phone conversations with, someone who will dance around the kitchen to Barney music while laughing as hard as we can because we know we’re just being stupid, and that’s okay? Maybe our friendship is just unique for this time, and my future husband will relate to a completely different way. That’s okay. For now- I have you and I don’t need anyone else. I watch other girls jump from guy to guy to find fulfillment, and I don’t. I’m okay being single because I’m waiting for the real thing, and you remind me every day how I should be treated. I love you so much. Thank you for loving me back.
Your best friend
