On it were the words "I am afraid your beauty has quite stolen my voice at this moment in time. However, if you'd like to go for coffee with me I am sure it will return in short order."
That is made of "awww".
My best (guy) friend, who I have known since we were in preschool together (from about the age of 4), admitted to having been in love with me about the middle of last year - while I was happily in a relationship. Basically, I kind of figured it out and got him to confirm it. The reason I figured it out? He went through this phase of trying to find girls that were like me, in some way or another, but just not me
. He would then come and complain to me about how they were "not normal" and that I was "the only normal girl he knew" and he just wanted "someone sane and normal". Subtlety isn't really one of his strong points.
He has dated other girls, one turned out to be rather religious and rather insane and the other turned out to be completely mean and horrible to him and cheated on him and ignored him. Cue, more of the "normal girl" stuff.
Aside from all of that, I have been spending the past few weeks making out with said best friend. So I guess his years of waiting and trying to find another 'me' payed off.
