From Our Readers: You Treat Me Like a Friend, But I Want More Than That
You know how I hate superhero movies, I know how you love them. I know how you hate reading novels, and you know how much I love it. We both love dogs, we both love the same band, we both hate Halloween. We know each other very wel—it's like we could read each other's minds. Our friendship is strong, our similar personalities bind us together. We spend a lot of time together—online and in real life. We talk about our future all the time, and how we'd spend each and every day of our lives. You treat me as your friend, I treat you more than that.
You were there for me when I was down. I had very rough days and you were there to talk to me. You know how to make me happy and you know how to light up my day. We have little secrets that make me feel special because you trust me. You have a lot of friends but you always find time for me. Our late nigh talks, God, it makes me want to stop time and stay at that moment forever. The way we converse in the middle of our boring classes makes me feel like it's only the two of us in the room. When your eyes meet mine, I feel butterflies fluttering in my stomach. That time when we were baking cupcakes and you wiped the icing off my face—that was a moment I'd treasure eternally. That time when we both fell asleep whilst watching a film, it was unforgettable. And the way you fall asleep, those light snores of yours, the way you looked—you were so peaceful. You were like an angel from heaven sent down for me.
The way you move, the way you talk, the way you smile so sweetly at the jokes I tell you, how you fix your hair all the time made me fall for you. I feel safe when I am around you, I feel joy when I talk to you, I feel comfortable when we are together. But do you feel the same way? Have you developed the same feelings for me too? Do I make your world go around like you made mine turn? There are countless number of questions stuck in my mind. And all those questions are for you.
I wish I was brave enough to tell you how I feel. I wish this friendship would be more than what it is. I wish I am good enough for you. I wish your actions meant something else. We are each other's soulmates, we can't deny it. Soulmates do not always end up being in a relationship, they don't always end up being together. But they are always there for each other. They always have each other's back. There's nothing that could separate them, I hope we are inseparable too. Whatever happens, you will always be the best friend that I loved dearly. I will always be here for you. I love you.
