This actually isn’t mine, I got it from Jillian Gandingco (http://www.sayhellojillianandraissa.tumblr.com) ages ago. Haha! Enjoy!
They say that a guy and a girl can’t be “just friends” because eventually, one will fall for the other. They do, however, end up as “just friends” after the “fallen” has realized that he/she can be nothing more to the “fallen for.” So I guess falling for a friend is inevitable. If you like spending time with that person and have grown fond of them, then that may be enough grounds for something “more…”
If there is such thing as a “boy-next-door”, is there a “girl-next-door” as well?
She’s the person you can call in the middle of night and end up talking to up until the wee hours of the dawn. The person who listens to your feminine side because crying to your group of friends can be a bit embarrassing. Or the one who puts up with your stupid, shallow and crazy realizations of life and actually, agree with you sometimes. The one who chats with you, will help you work on a paper- just so you have company.
She’s the person you text when you when you’re bored. The girl that you’re comfortable with just chilling on your couch and playing video games, or watching movies. The girl who can come up to your room and no one in your family or even in your social circle, would think any kind of malice towards. The one who you can sleep together with, literally.
She’s the person you bring to a party where you know most of the people invited are coupled up. She keeps you company, makes you look good, feeds your ego and actually, goes with the flow occasionally when a “hirit” is made. And despite being her date, you don’t have the responsibility of carrying her bag, opening the door, pulling out her seat and accompanying her to the washroom. She simply is there to save you from being out of place and the perils of unlimited PDA from everyone else.
She’s the one you use as a cover up to shun away girls that like you but you don’t like back. The one you bring along to show off so that other girls would think you were taken. Or used as a cover-up when there would be a probability that you’d see your ex. She’s the one who would let you hold her hand and act all gentlemanly and sweet for whatever kind of reasons you might have. And yet, in the end, never have a second thought in her mind that it could’ve meant something more.
She’s the person your whole family knows. And your mom actually asks about her and how she’s been doing. The girl that your mom looks for when it’s been a while since you’ve hung out. The one who’s invited to family reunions or parties, just because your family loves her personality and company. The one you can bring to a wedding or Christmas party, where everyone is blood-related to you except for her.
She’s the person you can tell everything; from your bad habits to your dreams. From anything discussing, like describing how your bone popped out, to everything inspiring like your theories about life and poetry. The one you can tell your rants and curses for the people you abhor. And even your escapades and prospects. She listens to you and sets aside her feminine side and holds no barrier, just friendship. You can tell her your 1-10 ranking of chicks and your devious plans for their pursuit. And can I mention how she handles your sexytime stories? Yes, she’s that kind of girl too.
You’re the only guy she could have this kind of patience, understanding, sympathy, dedication and care for. She may have other guy friends but she gives you this unconscious effort that neither you or her realize. She can miss you and actually, say it to you. And you know well enough that she cares for you greatly. She loves you in this sort of way that enables her to do all of this.
And although people often tell you should have gone for her instead, the thought or image of it never came to mind. “It’s a bit weird…” She can be your best friend or girlfriend and yet, more often, she’s actually not. She’s simply just there… Ever ready to listen and be there for you without asking for anything else in return.
Either you’ve found one true friend or you’ve found someone who loves you in ways you never expected. Just like the boy-next-door, she will always put you and your happiness first and foremost. She will stay because she wants you to be a part of her life, even if it were only as a friend. You are dear to her heart for reasons both of you will never understand. And for as long as she wants, and for as long as you don’t realize it, she will remain the “girl-next-door.”
