We were laying on her bed after a party. The drunk worn off and it was like 4 in the morning, and we were just talking on her bed about shit going on in our lives since we barely see each other anymore. After a while, I just kissed her in the cheek and said "I love you."
This girl is my best friend that I've maintained a complicated friends with benefits relationship with for years, and she replied saying "I love you too, and I feel like you're the only person who loves me. I don't know what I would do without you in my life." And looked me in the eyes with the most despair.
I didn't know what to say back because that's some heavy shit.... and usually when a girl says the word "love" to me, I ignore her and back away from her life.
But this time, I just fuckin' couldn't. I just hugged her tightly said "I would never leave you, even if it meant losing everything." And she started crying. Instead of trying to fuck, I just comforted her and we slept.
We woke up, and I took her out for breakfast. She said none of her exes ever brought her out or bought her anything, and that made me realize she's been treated like shit by every guy she's dated and I'm the only nice guy in her life.
So tonight, I'm asking her to be my girlfriend. That single sentence she said literally overshadowed EVERY sexual experience I've had with EVERY girl I've been with. That alien feeling of love I've chosen not to feel finally became existent in my life, and it's honestly the best feeling I've had in years.
Just saw this shit on another forum. God damn.
