Dear friend,

I barely talk to you anymore.  Maybe because it’s too hard.  Because you always mention his name.  Don’t you know?  It hurts so much.  I know you are dating him so you are going to talk about him.  But you’ve said it yourself you don’t really like him.

I sit next to you and we don’t talk about hardly anything.  I try to keep you from bringing him up by saying things like, “you won’t believe what happened! ” and quickly thinking of something that has happened in the past day.  I don’t want you to think you can’t tell me things.  You should know that you can but, sometimes it hurts.

You’ve had feelings for me before.  You say dating him is a good distraction.  How is that fair?!  I know we can’t be together, and that difficult things do happen.  But I am here for you.  You don’t have to do that.  You say that you won’t go out with him.  But you’ve been saying that.

I’ll see you in a few hours…

~Your best friend
