A Conversation Between Friends

“So you think I’m in love?”

“I didn’t say it like that. But I was just teasing.”

“Okay, seriously what do you think?”

“It’s not my place to say anything. It’s your decision at the end of the day.”

“I know, but I also want to know what you think.”

“No you don’t. You just want me to confirm what you believe so you can feel better about yourself.”

“So you think my emotions are easy to read?”

“Girl, please. I’ve known you since what, we were five? I could read you as if you were a book. Even if I met you an hour ago, I could still tell if something was up.”

“That’s debatable. I’m not that transparent.”

“Okay, let’s get down with examples. Take the girl you were talking to before. You act like you no longer care who she’s with, but really, you’re still hurt that she didn’t fall in love with you.”

“That’s incorrect.”

“I don’t believe you.”

“The only reason why I acted like I didn’t care was because I thought it was hard to be friends and have romantic feelings. I felt like I could only choose one.”

“Yeah, it can get hard sometimes to draw the line. But it doesn’t change the fact that you were hurt when she started seeing someone else. You always seem to want to exude this cool, chill persona, as if no one can hurt your feelings. And that’s fine, it’s a way of living life. I’m just saying that you don’t have to pretend when you’re with me. Or even if you decide to pretend, just accept the fact that I know how you’re feeling, even if I don’t say anything.

Also, I know how it feels when someone doesn’t pick you. Having feelings for anyone that’s not reciprocated hurts like hell. But even though I sort of understand why you feel the need to lie, there’s no need with me.”

(a period of silence)

“I hate it when you word situations like that.”

“Haha. You know you love me. You just know when I’m telling the truth.”

  1. You have a great, trustworthy friend.
    We all struggle with these issues – the love versus friendship, feelings of rejection, trying to play it cool when we’re boiling over inside, etc. It’s all human.
