Ive known my best friend Chris for 8 years, since we were both 10 years old.

it was one of those friendships where you do everything together. like having your first alcoholic drink together, to tattoos, sleeping out in the park. He was the one who edged me to go into tattooing you see.
even when chris went out to live in America for two years with his dad, the friendship remained close and i even flew out to meet him a few times.

when he returned, last week, he told me that he couldnt be imagine his life without me and got down on one knee in the middle of birmingham airport and proposed….i said yes.

so i just wondered if anyone else fell in love with there old friends, or what is your most romantic moment.

im in a soppy mood…it doesnt happen often.

I am not spamming here but the story of how I proposed to my wife is a good one.
I made a comic about it.
My wife won a diamond ring for the story.
I am not rich and wanted to make a memory for her.
With a bit of creativity and friends any one can be romatic if they are so inspired.

My wife and I started out as very good friends, then she proposed to me 3 days before Christmas in 1992, we were engaged 2 and a half years and we've been married for 12 years. Great friendships can make for great relationships.

Keep a sense of reality: you'll have ups and downs, they'll have ups and downs, you won't always agree…but if you know them for who they really are (even at their most difficult times), and you love them anyway, you can have a wonderful marriage.

My wife has been my best friend for 15 years now. :)

Well my friend that I had a relationship like that, things got wierd for her, and she decided to go do something else for awhile. Then she showed up late last year, so I had to leave the girl I was with for like eight months to be with her. I really loved her, but things didn't work out. It wasn't like a week, week and a half of her being around that things went sour. I blame myself for it. Really put a downer on the worst holiday ever (Christmas) and made it just even more of a bummer.

The funny thing is that I always thought I'd end up with one of my best friends, as I'm such a tomboy I usually have more guy friends than girl friends. In reality, none of my guy friends were ever interested in me, and I ended up meeting a guy online. We only managed to stay platonic “friends” for like 2 days, heh. It never happens the way you think it will. Ah well.

Cute story tho, I wish you the best of luck!

I actually knew my current bf (Mark) in high school. We were in Track and Choir together. The funny thing is…we NEVER TALKED EVER in high school.

I was a nerdy goody goody and he was a goofy, semi-popular class clown with a ton of cool friends. I figured he was out of my league and I knew so many girls that liked him that me dating him never crossed my mind. In fact I never dated ANYONE in high school, i guess I was too shy.


But the funny thing is was that some of his really good friends were friends with some of my best friends. So we ended up at some of the same gatherings but never talked.

So we graduated and he went one way and I went to college.

Three years later…

I went home for the summer and my friend brings me to Mark's house because he was hosting poker nights at his place every weekend. I was really into Texas hold em them so I went. Then me and that fool finally talked, and he asked me out on a date to Festival Del Mar, and we have been together since (10 months).

The funny things is I found out he is a big nerd like me. And that he didn't date girls in high school either cuz he was too shy. And he even noticed me in high school but thought I was too pretty to like him.

We both thought we were out of each other's league and now here we are.

Which goes to show you two things:

1) it's ok if you never have a date in high school, cuz post graduation is when you pretty much meet the meaningful ones anyway

2) don't be shy to say hi or ask someone out. You never know, they could be interested in you too. Don't hold yourself back :).

I know its not exactly a long time, but my girlfriend now, we have been friends for 7 years, and we where the ‘Will they? Won’t they?' people in high school. we have both been in college for two years and then we started seeing more and more of each other, it just happened one time we where out. I'm really pleased to say that the past two months have been the best two months of my life.

Read the Author, its good i promise.

This is also good for the break ups and divorces too.

I know it won't come to that.

I was reading through the responses here and a lot of you are dating or have been burned quite of bit. If advice can be given…worry about yourself, your dreams, your future, your life first.

I know this will sound cheezy, so bear with me, imagine your life as a marathon… you want to win or reach your goal(s)… you will pass a number of people on the way…people who will keep up with you for a while and those who will not…the one who is able to keep up with you for the long haul…then your golden, pony boy!

The crazy thing is all people have problems and baggage. Some have a carryon while others have a U-Haul and they are looking for a driver! Deal with your baggage first so you can be free to reach your goal(s)!

This is good advice! I have tried to get my daughter to see this…but she is too caught up in the ‘romance bug’ and puts everything in her life on hold everytime she meets a new guy…blarck!!!
As for me, three failed marraiges…and most of them were because of the baggage trains each of us carried. I myself had to endure a nervous breakdown (relationship unrelated) to literally lose everything…including my useless baggage (which somehow didn't ‘seem’ useless until it was actually gone) and then, when I had totally given up on the whole love thing (I mean, what woman in her right mind would want a forty-something, three time loser with nothing to his name but a camper for his home, a dog for his friend and a job as a glorified janitor!!!) I meet my current wife. Of course, due to the fact that she has schizophrenia, I guess most folks would say she is NOT in her ‘right’ mind… but oddly, she has been perfect. She left her multi-millionaire husband for just the chance to date me (I won't go out with married girls…ever…) and we have not looked back. Five years now, and I am consumed with love and friendship. We fit so well and we do most everything together.
But the fact is, I would never have met of given Karen a chance, had I still been carrying around my baggage. Five good years and my life is back on track. I have a lovely home, nice vehicles, a great job, respect, and love. The right one can make all the difference…

Ah… friendship turned romance can become complicated sometimes. Or at least I think so (being burnt out on the idea of experiencing romance for myself doesn't help). :)

Eh. I lost touch with everyone I knew in high school. My best friends were all guys but they have changed. They are different people now, and so am I. I doubt we'd have much of a friendship now, let alone anything else. I'm kinda glad I didn't try any of that relationship stuff back then. I like the person I am, and I'm glad I didn't get sucked into the boyfriend nonsense. High school was complicated and stressful enough.

I haven't made any close male friends since high school (some male acquaintances, most married, a couple gay). I had a few crushes, but no dates and no boyfriends (um, ever) because timidness is my curse.

It's hard to make friends as an adult… :(

Whoa this is a deep thread.
My current boyfriend and I were friends and hung out so much we were just kinda like “we're dating aren't we?” but if you know me then you know that him and I came together under very “weird” circumstances ;)

I just hope I don't end up getting burned too! (it totally shouldn't be working out, but it is so far!)

and I must give a big comforting hug to all the dumped people and people with sad stories…I do feel for ya!

and a big congrats to ms. leopardprints… yah i totally feel bipolar now!

About three years ago I broke up with my girl after a relationship of about 1,5 years. We've been best friends ever since, an we each had other relationships, but even now, three years later, every time I see her I get that same feeling I had when I first met her.

She's been seeing a guy for a fair while now, and truth be told, the guy's awesome. I hang out at their place (Well, her place, he's just there untill he gets his place fixed up) and have a great time talking to both of them, but under the surface there's still that hint of jealousy when she kisses him or something like that.

I haven't worked up the courage to tell her though…I've been trying to for several months now, ever since I found out that I still loved her, to tell her about the way I feel, but I'm affraid it'll mess up our friendship. She's the best friend I've got and probably ever will have, so I don't want to ruin anything, but I don't think it's fair to just pretend there's nothing going on, either.
I'll probably find the time to tell her, eventually, but I don't think it'll happen any time soon. Everytime I tell myself I'm gonna talk about it, as soon as she walks in, I chicken out. It'll happen though, some day. Or at least that's what I keep promising myself.

WTH? If you broke up with her then it's over. Either you're just friends or you're nothing. Unless she's been giving you signals?

Don't be clingy like that. It'll just get weird and then you won't be friends with her anymore (which may be the best thing).

Man, this is why you can't be friends with guys.

Once upon a time I became desparately in love with this girl who started as a friend I met in college.

Back when I was ill-equipped and unprepared for the harsh reality of so-called “relationships”.

Based on after-failure analysis, what got me to fall in love with her… was practically the tone of her voice and her smell. Basically prolonged exposure to it. It got to my head enough to disable my rational thought process and make dominant… the thoughts of my other head.

I was brainwashed… in such a way that I made the world revolve around her and did stupid things.

It didnt work out in the end when I “proposed”… so it hurt me really really bad. Enough to alter my thought process. That experience actually HAD GOOD EFFECTS… after going through the depressive-alchoholic-suicidal stage…

Which are:

1) It reinforced something told to me by a priest: “You should think with the head between the shoulders and not the head between your legs. That is why God created you in such a way that your LARGER HEAD IS ABOVE YOUR SMALLER HEAD”

2) It made me more cynical and sarcastic. Its a good thing because its like an armor that protects me from exploitation. Ironically, my cynicism and sarcasm got me more RESPECT from other people around me.

3) It altered my mind state. Now I am 100x more difficult to “fall” in love. After that experience, I obsessively read about psychology… both mainstream and the other offensive stuff (TRUTH hurts like a bitch isnt it? lol! ) For me to be seduced again, you have to be at least an S-Ranked-super-elite-military-grade seducer…

4) It got me fodder for MAG-ISA. Though it will be exagerrated in that comic of course (a future chapter… just in case you follow it). I'm a master of exagerration and I could be employed in the propaganda department if communism takes over my country lol!

Yeah my first college crush inspired me to draw my first comic book epic. Man, it was sappy. If I posted it I'm sure I'd get tons of fangirls, but I have too much self-respect.
