From Our Readers: How We Went From Best Friends to Complete Strangers
You made me fall hard, that I can't get back on my feet again even though my friends are there to pull me up.

"I didn't see that coming." 

We were just seatmates, you would chat with me to ask what the assignment for the day is,. Then as time passed by, we eventually got closer. We'd go to gym together and eat breakfast together when we had no classes. Our friend used to tease us that we were a crazy married couple because of how close we were to each other. 

Months later, I developed a crush on you. On Valentine's Day, you gave me flowers and my favorite chocolate. Because of that, my feelings for you grew deeper. Later on, I admitted my feelings for you. I thought that that would be the end of our friendship and that things would get awkward, but actually, it didn't! We became closer. 

We would go to the movies, to the gym, and different restaurants—just the two of us. We'd tell each other everything, almost like we became personal diaries of each other! There was also a time that we called each other "babe" and we'd throw cheesy lines to each other. My friends already thought that we were a couple, but unfortunately, you didn't have feelings for me.

Today, I continue to reminisce those beautiful memories that we had, and I really feel so sad because we don't have that anymore. Why? Because you fell in love with my close friend. At first, I tried to be okay with it and just convince myself to move on, but even though how hard I try, I can't seem to get over you. You made me fall hard, that I can't get back on my feet again even though my friends are there to pull me up.

You made me fall hard, that I can't get back on my feet again even though my friends are there to pull me up. 

From being best friends, we became strangers. And I just want to tell you that I miss you so much that it hurts.
