Isnt it funny …. life, I think so. I think friendships and the closeness between friendship and possibilities between a male and a female is ridiculous. You either break the rule and actually be friends or you go with the trend that everyone thinks and get together finally. I have known 1 boy since we both started working together at the age of 16, I have known him this year for 9 years. We have been through each other’s ups and downs, relationships, single times, sicknesses etc but we’ve always been there for each other.
Many have thought over the years that I was either going to be with this boy or another. Both have asked me out. Let’s just clear that up now – oh and they used to be best of friends – awkward – different times………… now I am starting to sound a bit sleezy, I promise you it’s definitely not that LOL!
Anyway back on track, we meet up when we can but there’s always been the girlfriend, who is rather protective – it could also be the fact that he asked me out before her : / awkward again.
When he decided to meet up with me just us two, I thought hey up…. she’s let him out :I Even my parents thought exactly the same (both parents want us to be together lol). So I went along and met him.
We had the best night, 30 minutes of driving around and playing yellow car, taking the piss out of each other, laughing, no conversation breaks.
Then I asked how his girlfriend was, his reply “single”.
Oh….. I seriously didnt know what to do, look sad, concerned, smile or just I didnt know how to express, so I did a mixture of 3. LOL how bad!!
But in a weird way, I am happy he is now single as I have my best friend back, my best boy. We’re very alike in that we finish each others sentences, we think the same and laugh at the same jokes. He’s like the sportier version of me.
Unfortunately looking at that quote above, that is our relationship.
I fell for him when I was 16-18, I put my thoughts away under lock and key…… when I was 20, he came around my house at 7:30am and asked whether he would go out with me…. I was seeing someone else…. then he got with her.
Opportunities suck. Timings suck.
We did ask each other the other night, if we were to do something different over the past 10 years, what would we do differently, we both looked at each other and said ” grow some balls, go for it and take a chance ” and we both exchanged a glance, with no words.
Boys and girls can be friends, there’s always gonna be that attraction – that either you hide or you show.
