If you have a bosom friend of the opposite sex, it is likely to fall in love with your best friend, and expressing your feelings could be difficult.
It really hurts but there are funny or poetic ways to say I love you to your best friend.
Today, Diana talked about how she fell in love with her bestie (James) in high school.
We were both 10 years when we got into high school, it was exciting and a coincidence!
I was nervous and to make matters worse, I was initially assigned to the wrong class (without my primary school friends), but had also missed some classes.
It’s like it was just yesterday
I stood – a little late – and stylish in my black and white flared trousers and the pink T-shirt with a cat print in front of the already closed door.
The idea of having to go in there and get attention was totally stupid.
I showed courage and went in, only to be immediately embarrassed to realize that I was in the wrong room and the teacher said – “Don’t worry, Diana.
Just sit down with us for this hour and look for a free place. Great. Everyone was already sitting and watching me.
I didn’t know anyone. So I made my way through the rows looking for a place.
When I passed, James gave me a shy but encouraging smile and I sat down next to him. And somehow I’m still sitting there today.
Next to him, by his side. I was no longer nervous and fearful around James and we were fine together.
We became best friends pretty quickly
During class, we wrote messages to each other. After school, we play and go home together. We do this most times every week.
Somehow, we understood life in a similar way back then. Like soul mates, “Soulmate”.
We discuss our assignments and our experiences within and outside the school.
We spent all of our youth together
That was an intense time with a lot of highs, but also some lows that we went through together.
The first bad grades, the fear of math class, the insecurities of puberty.
The first kiss, the first time, the first parties, the first vacation without parents, the first big love.
When I just cried and shivered because of my first bad lovesickness, you patted my back all night and said everything would be fine.
The summer after your back surgery was difficult. Having a vacation without you kind of sucks.
That’s why I’ve visited you as often as possible during these weeks.
Telling you all the news hot at your sickbed to cheer you up, so that you could hopefully get well again very quickly.
When you switched schools, we were worried that it might move us apart. But we weren’t kids anymore and we were responsible for staying friends and of course, we did!
When you told me crying one night that you were in love with a woman and that you were scared, I promised you that nothing would change between us.
Who would have thought at the time that Diana in question would also become one of the closest friends to James?
You deserve this happiness so much
When I look at you today, I see a wonderful, confident woman who knows exactly what she wants.
The warm-heartedness radiates and is empathetic and above all has incredible strength.
You are my haven of peace, with you, I am at home and can be exactly as I am. This is a gift I will never forget.
We suddenly grew up pretty much! This year we will celebrate your wedding, next year we will celebrate 20 years of friendship. A friendship that I’m very proud of.
When I think about the future, I see us together. I see us on vacation on the beach, in everyday life with joint professional projects, with our children in the playground, at dinner parties in the garden.
And how we old and wrinkled, raise our champagne glasses to a wonderful life together. Sitting side by side, just like at school.
Both Diana and James were in love with each other even though Diana realized James has a girlfriend and she could not talk about her deep feelings.
