this fucking mentality that you can’t be best friends with your significant other, that romance ruins a friendship, that BOTH FRIENDSHIP AND ROMANCE CANNOT OCCUR SIMULTANEOUSLY kills me like
that’s such a horrible, horrible and unhealthy mentality to have
who has this mentality though? I’ve never heard of anyone who doesn’t regard their partner as a best friend…
I find friendship and romance occurring at the same time utterly bizarre but wonderful. My boyfriend really is my best friend and I never thought that could be possible. It’s strange some days when I look at him through the eyes of a friend but my heart feels heavy in my chest and I get butterflies in my belly. I asked him if he ever feels that way, like if he looks at me and sees the girl he’s attracted to and the girl who’s his best friend as two separate people some times and he just replied “thats what loves supposed to be, right? In love with your best friend?” I’m literally th luckiest person ever.
every time I have a fleeting visit to keswick I’m reminded of why I’ve never stayed and why I’ll always be friends with a select few
