* from Merriam-Webster Online http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=Dictionary&va=friend&x=0&y=0

And a 6 letter word that breaks my heart every time.

Any time I try to tell some one I like them more just a friend and would like to see the relationship evolve into something more this is the response I usually get: "I think we should just be friends." "I like you too much as a friend." "You're kinda like a little sister to me.", or the fun "You're one of the guys Brittany I couldn't date you, it would just be weird." Hey, just what I need another friend, right? Maybe I should look at the fact that maybe they do just need a friend to hang out with, that I should take good friends as a compliment. There will be others as everyone says, my one is still out there somewhere, I guess. But it still doesn't make the hurt any less, or make me feel that I will always only be a friend and am not worthy of anything more....but being a friend is better than nothing, right? Friendship has it's perks, and maybe they can introduce me to one of there friends and who knows they might turn out to be more than a friend.

So that's it for now, just friends, you and me, I guess.

When you tell a friend that you like them in a way that is more than friendly, you are being honest. Honesty is sexier than anything (except thigh-high boots, but I digress...)

If you want to have a healthy romantic relationship you have to be friends in the first place, so I'd say that having a lot of friends puts you on the right track.

I have a theory - the more you want a romance in your life, the less likely it is to happen. Desperation is to single people like fear is to dogs - they can smell it a mile away. Just keep being honest, be your cool self, and romance will find you. Honest.

I'm sorry things are hard, sweetie. But Linus is right. You should listen to him (just this once, though. Most of the time, he has no idea what the hell is going on ;P).

friendship with benifits and whips is a good compromise.

You will find someone one day that doesn't just want to "just be friends". I promise you. Laramie is not exactly the place to find that, but you are planning on moving on from this tiny hole of interbreeding. No offense meant to anyone.
But I DO want to thank you for being my friend on Sunday. Hang in there, it will get better.
