Have you ever.....
Had someone in your life who you feel "gets" you. Who you can say anything to and it won't matter. Who has seen you at your best and worst and is still there?
Had someone who you have regular sex with and don't feel dirty or ashamed, whose eyes you can look into and know they'll look right back.
Had someone who has never mistreated you in any way, shape or form. Who has been a constant for the majority of a decade, always making a point to show back up in your life.
Had someone who pushes you to be a better person and forces you to think things through in a way that may be difficult. Who makes you face your fears and face the future. Who makes you strive towards being the person they see you as.
Had someone who has seen you grow over the years and change and embraced it. Who has seen you make mistakes and not judge, who has seen you through it all.
Had someone who you have the ultimate highs and lows with. A conversation can have you wanting to throw something at them during a debate and an hour later laughing so hard you want to cry.
Had someone you actually feel really comfortable around. And that's a rareity.
Had someone you talk to almost every day. Who is one of the closest friends you'll ever have.
......and they love you as a friend and won't date you.
I think it's time to close the door and take it for what it is.
