A friendship turned relationship.

My girlfriend, and best friend, i met nearly 4 years ago. We spent the first 2 years as close friends. We didn't have feelings of love those 2 years. Those developed during the third year. Because as we got closer, we found out what we have in common and it pulled us closer and closer together. Then one day i found myself head over heels for her. When i asked her out, i found out, directly from her parents, shes not allowed to date till college. Well in our 4th year of close friendship and 1 year from college, and we have it all planned out.

I loved her but, I'm afraid of response.

Hi my name Dereje I'm university lecturer. I loved one beautiful, clever, genuine & self style girl in the school. She is computer science student, I'm her instructor. I love her. However I ashamed to tell her my love for her. Many things if us is similar: religious , attitude, physical appearance & confidence, but, she is very pretty than me. Pls give idea... I'm always thinking of her!!!! God Bless!!! Thanks!

What Should I Do?

I am a bookworm and I have no friends. Now I met a girl named Emmalyn who reads the same books I do and I really like her. We talk all the time and I think I may be falling in love with her. She has shown she may not like me, but it is possible that she may be hiding it. We have some of the same interests and I really like her. I think I'm in love but I'm afraid to say it. My love experiences have been bad but I really hope this will turn out better!

Love from 5000 miles away

I know that I love him because he is never far from my thoughts. I know that I love him because I am honestly interested in the mundane things to. I know that I love him because when he is sick I want nothing more than to make him a little more comfortable. I know that I love him because he is the only one that I want. I know that he loves me for many of the same reasons that I know I love him. You see even though there is no doubt that we truly love each other there are issues. I live in the US and he lives in the UK; there is more than 5000 miles between us for most of the year. I know that we love eachother because we wait for eachother and even though we can only spend 90 days with eachother every year we find a way to make it work for 3 years now because the time that we do have together makes everything worth it. I know I love him because I miss everything about him when he is gone and when he is here we are greatful for every moment we have together.
—Guest I am me

I think I love him...

I have most of my classes with this boy in my Yr 9 class. I had a dream about him-where he was with my friend. I woke up crying. I knew I liked him, but wasn't sure until he startef dating another one of my friends, and my heart broke. They are not together, but we aren't either. Whenever he is late to a lesson I worry. If he is stopped for a uniform check, I worry. And now he might be moving 6 hours away, to devon, and I don't know what to do. I can't tell him how I feel, but he can't leave without knowing. I can't stop feeling that close friends isn't enough, but does he?

What love means to me

To me love means that u will do just about anything for the person you love,when u are in love then u can't stop thinking about that person.Your heart beat faster and slower at the same time when you see her or him.They make you feel whole,they make you feel like you can take on the world.He/she makes you see the world in a different perspective
