Love as Friends Archive

"I think that tonight I will sneak into your house and I'll sing songs and wake you up and I'll take you blindfolded, dancing off to bridges, and you'll say you don't want to be with me. No one ever does, no one ever thinks of me that way." - Saves the Day

"I love you. And not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. And it's not because you're unattainable. I love you. Very simply, very truly. You're the epitome of every attribute and quality I've ever looked for in another person." - Chasing Amy

"I meet these men, fall desperately in love, and become friends with them in the mistaken hope that one day they'll see the error of their ways and realize they're madly attracted to me. But of course that doesn't happen. I just go out with them as friends and misinterpret every look, every sigh, every touch, and try to convince myself they're about to make a move, and each time I end up feeling like shit, because yet another man I fancy isn't interested." - Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

"It's funny how young lovers start as friends. . . " - The Wonder Years

"It's amazing how one day you're my best friend, just hanging out and then the next day you're kissing me good night." - Allison Mosher

"Is it possible to be just friends with someone I have these sort of immoderate feelings for?" - Felicity

"I always want you to know, even if it doesn't show, I love you now and I loved you then, whether you're my lover or my friend."

"For the first time in my life, I don't care if I completely understand it. I don't need to deconstruct it until it crumbles into nothing. I just know that it's a step I'd like to take. With my best friend." - Dawson's Creek

"I like you more than a friend more and more each day." - The Jimmy Tuesday Band

"I finally found someone who knocks me off my feet; I finally found the one who makes me feel complete. It started over coffee; we started out as friends. it's funny how from simple things, the best things begin." - Barbara Streisand and Bryan Adams

"Do you remember that night . . . that night when all of a sudden, out of the blue, you and I became absolutely crazy about each other?"

"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

"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."
