Love as Friends Archive

"It's funny, most people can be around someone and then gradually begin to love them and never know exactly when it happened." - Fried Green Tomatoes

"How can you simply be friends with someone when every time you look at them, you're thinking about how much more you really want?" - Dawson's Creek

"There's a line between friends and not-friends and if I tell you this, if I tell you this whole horrible thing then you have to react as my friend. Not my not-friend." - Grey's Anatomy

"He was not my boyfriend. On the other hand, he wasn't just a friend either. Instead, our relationship was elastic, stretching between those two extremes depending on who else was around, how much either of us had to drink, and other varying factors. This was exactly what I wanted, as commitments had never really been my thing. And it wasn't like it was hard, either. The only trick was never giving more than you were willing to lose."

"I love you. I love you not because you're adorable or because you're sweet, or because you're my best friend. I love you because you make me step outside myself and look at who I really am. You make me want to be a better person, just because you are who you are. I can tell you absolutely everything and I know you will listen. And you're one of my best friends. But I will keep all of this to myself because I love you, but you do not love me...I wish that I could make you love me, but I cannot. That is why these words will be forever lost in my memories, never to be spoken aloud: I love you."

"I don't know what to say to you. You mean the world to me. And you know it's true, one day you make me feel like a million dollars and the next like dog shit on the bottom of your shoe. You make me smile, laugh and sing, at the same time you make me cry and scream. I don't know why you do this to me, and I really don't know why I let you do this to me. I guess it's because every time I start to lose hope you give it back to me, you make me think there is a chance again. If you asked me today what is tomorrow going to be like, I would tell you that there would be no more you and me, that I was not going to take your crap and let you walk all over me. Then tomorrow comes, and you give me one look, you know that look, the one that makes me melt right there and I have hope again. This happens again, and again. At first I thought it was all your fault, but now I know it's mine. The only thing you're doing to

"People always talk about that moment when they fell for their best friend. There never was a moment for me and mine. I've always loved him." - Michelle Burns

"When friends fall in love, it means they are meant for each other. But when friends fall out of love, it means they want to keep each other forever."

"I can't believe I've found you, you're all I've waited for. Who knew a simple friendship, could turn into something more?"

"I know you think of me as just a friend, and that crossing that line is the furthest thing from an option you'd ever consider. But I have to say it...I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can't look into your eyes without feeling that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are..." - Chasing Amy

"A friend is all you'll ever be... but I'll always secretly wish the way you want her would be the way you want me."

"I know you just want to be friends...and that's ok with me, but please, just stop making me fall even harder."

"We always were the best of friends, no secrets and no demands until suddenly from somewhere out of the blue I see a different light around you." - Deana Carter

"It was just you and me. Two friends. And then with a simple look, my hand fell into yours." - Allison Mosher

"Once again I find myself trying to be okay with the fact that we are just friends. But then you grab my hand and well then I'm not okay I'm floating." - Allison Mosher

"Did you ever lay your head down on the shoulder of a good friend and then had to look away somehow, had to hide the way you felt for them? Have you prayed the day would come you'd hear them say they feel it, too. Did you ever love someone who never knew?" - Jessica Simpson, 'Did You Ever Love Somebody'

"It's much easier to turn a friendship into love than a love into friendship."

"It's gonna be alright, just tell yourself that. Make sure they know it too. Maybe you should give it a try, promising each other that you'll always stay friends. But is such a perfect friendship something to gamble over something as simple yet as complicated as the illusion of love? The time for passion and crushes, and even deeper feelings, that comes and goes. But friendship, that's what gets you through life and lasts for a lifetime."

"I see you everyday. You're walking with that girl. I imagine for a minute me with you, instead of her. But then I realize I'm your friend, and that's all I'll ever be. I won't be your girlfriend, I won't be your lover. I won't get to talk to you about how much I love you and then you saying it back. It just won't happen. And I have to live with that. I just have to go on with life knowing you're just my friend. Just my friend."

"Why is it that you can be my best friend, and I can tell you anything. Except the fact that I've loved you forever, in more then one way. I know we're meant to be together, just not right now. Hopefully soon though, because I can't imagine my life without you in it."
