I was playing 20 questions or something like and the question came up, “Can two people be friends if one is in love with or has romantic feelings for the other?” I answered “yes, they can still maintain a friendship.” I am thinking on it now though, is that really possible? I once fell for my best friend, it was sudden and happened before I even realized what was happening. It ruined our friendship, maybe not the love but things that come with unrequited love. The question of love in the friendship was always there, the other person tries so hard not to overstep any bounds, not to lead you on but in doing that, they halt the friendship. Their afraid to love their friend at all and maybe that makes the friendship impossible or maybe that’s just me. Feelings of love don’t just go away so maybe a friendship isn’t possible when things such as this happen, either you wait for feelings to die or you make yourself miserable watching the one you love, love someone else. Or maybe that’s just a cynic’s view.
I’m wrong, you are right. I could argue all kinds of points of view but it would come down to the simple fact I was wrong, you were right. Also, regardless of the fact I thought we are best friends and maybe wanting more, you are right that whatever was happening was none of my business.
This is not sarcastic, this is not meant to be attacking, demeaning or any of that stuff. Just simple, you are right, I was wrong, I am sorry. I still love you, I hope you still love me for being an idiot?
It doesn’t matter if we’re friends. If I ask you to leave it alone; leave it alone.
It’s not even a matter of do I still love you, so don’t even ask that. of course i do.
Ugh close to home, to the heart.
