I have been asked by several people lately if I am really okay with me and B being friends.
Not friends with benefits. Not dating. Just simply friends.
I would be lying if I said I didn't wish there was something more there for us. But I just don't think its in the cards.
So if the best we have together is an amazing friendship...then I am thankful for that.
I know that if I have a question about setting my life up back home, need advice on a bank or cell phone carrier he will give me a full and complete answer. If I need to tell a stupid story or a joke...he will laugh. If I just need to be a bit of a brat, he calls me on it. He listens to a my people watching comments and finds them funny or points out the more funny incident I missed.
He's there when I need him. Maybe not in the ways that I wish he were.
But you can't force something that isn't there.
So I am thankful and even more grateful for an amazing friend.
