Admit It, We Can't Be "Just Friends"

“Be careful when falling for a close friend; it can work out perfectly or blow up in your face” 

You and I have always been the perfect match. Let’s be honest, we get each other so well and the physical attraction between us is still as fresh as it was when we first met each other and became friends. At this point, it’s ridiculous to me how we’re not enjoying the perks of being in a romantic relationship. Why is it so hard for you to accept that we can’t be “just friends”?

What else do you need to prove that we’ve be great together? Sadly though, it seems that it’s becoming more of an impossibility to ever become more than what we are now. I’m just starting to give up on the idea that you’ll ever open your heart to being something more than pals. The problem is, one thing is to give up on that idea, and something else is to learn to live with the fact that I have feelings for you. I can’t just turn those feeling off with a switch. 

I know that you’re not ready to settle down and share your heart with me. I know you’re in a period in your life where you want to explore the world and get to know yourself better. I get it, you told me that a million times and I respect it. But how can you deny your feelings for me? Doesn’t getting to know yourself better involve exploring your emotions? How am I not in that equation? 

It’s just hard for me to come to terms with how you’re choosing to not give us a chance. I know you’re afraid of spoiling the friendship that we’ve built and invested in for so long. But I can assure you that our friendship won’t suffer if we decided to act on our romantic feelings for each other. If anything, I think our friendship is suffering right now by denying ourselves to explore the “what if” that our hearts are offering us to question and experience. 

I’m sorry but it’s just no possible for me to completely give up on the possibility of having something that I know will be amazing. You’re by far the most incredible guy I’ve ever connected at this level with. So I ask you, one more time, to please give us a chance. 

Do you remember how it only took us a few seconds to open up to each other? Next thing you knew, we were finishing each other’s sentences. We were able to sense each other’s moods and we knew how to be there for each other no matter what.  We’ve known how to care for each other from the second we met. So why do we have to settle for “just friends”? 

I won’t beg you for a chance, you know that’s not my style. But you also know I’m not the type to go down without a fight. I want you to know that I cherish our friendship more than anything in this world. I want to have you in my life forever, that’s how much I love what you and I have. But you have to understand that my feelings for you are real and they’re not going away any time soon.  I have to respect my feelings as much as I respect our friendship. So I won’t force you to act on your feelings for me but since I can’t force myself to not feel anything for you, the only thing left for me to do is walk away from us for a while. 

The truth is, we can’t be “just friend” and since that’s all you want, I need to guard my heart from you until I’m able to figure out how we can continue being in each other’s life.

If you change your mind, I know you’ll know where to find me.
