I have been in love with this guy for 7 years. I’ve been waiting forever. He never knew how I felt when we were young until it was too late. He got a girlfriend. He found out. He was devastated that he had to pick between us. I told him I was fine. I got a boyfriend and eventually they broke up. I couldn’t justify leaving my boyfriend so I didn’t. A lot happened between then and now. I had another chance recently and I threw it away like the past 8 years hadn’t mattered at all. After him and his ex broke up, we got really close again. I was scared. No one on this earth knows me like he does and vice versa. We’ve just been friends for so long. Almost half of my entire life. And I guess my point is that even though I was scared the scarier part has been losing that chance and not knowing what could have been. I’m almost 20 years old and this is one regret I can’t live down. Life is too short and I’m a 8 year waiting fool.
