86 on your question meme. lol 'Cause it's happened to me. All the time. btw, miss you!
First off I miss you too! <3
As for number 86 (Have you ever liked one of your best friends of the opposite sex?) I’m going to interpret “like” as “enamored/”love”/sexually”:
In a one word answer, yes. But don’t worry, I’ll explain more. ;)
Being gay I’ve never sexually liked one of my female best friends, but before I accepted that about myself I did develop quite the crush on my best friend at the time. We had known each other since preschool, and thus shared a lot of time together. She was there in Kindergarten to alert the teacher the time I wouldn’t break the rule of getting out of our seats unless we asked even though I was holding back vomit with my hand. (Gross I know.) She was there throwing the scissors that hit me in the back of the head in third grade. (It was kind of an accident and she apologized right after.) She was even there at one of the darker times of my childhood too, but I won’t go into that. Needless to say, we had a lot of memories and when she switched schools in seventh grade, I was devastated. We still spoke on occasion that year, and then in eighth grade, when my struggle realizing/accepting my sexuality was reaching its peak, I thought I was in “like” with her. I won’t call it love, even though I think that is what I thought then, because looking back I know it was just a crush. Anyway, I took a morning algebra class at the high school I would attend the next year and there were also students there from the school she now attended. So I could “speak” to her through them (before the age of instant messaging, email, and cell phones! That makes me feel old that a remember a time like that!). And on Valentine’s Day I even sent her a hand made card with a piece of Dove chocolate. The next year we were reunited in a sense, as we both attended the same high school. However, I had started to except the fact that I was attracted to men, and honestly things just weren’t really the same any more. We had both changed, made new friends… grown up. We stayed friends, and I’d still say we’re friends, we just didn’t/don’t speak as much as we used to.
(PS: You know you’re my bestie and if I were of another persuasion we’d be more than that, haha!)
