To My Best Friend That Became My Boyfriend

God knows I couldn't live without you.

To My Best Friend That Became My Boyfriend
Morgan Lerch

Dear best friend/boyfriend,

Many girls carry on about how their boyfriend is their best friend; I mean that is how it's supposed to be. Most of these girls had boyfriends that turned into their best friends. But what we have is something special, something totally different. I was lucky enough to call you my best friend years before the thought of dating even crossed our minds. You were the Ron Stoppable to my Kim Possible, the Gordo to my Lizzie. We never saw it coming.

Because you were my best friend first you know all there is to know about me, the good, the bad and the ugly. There was no period of time where we hid things in order to impress the other. So, because of that, our relationship has been real since the beginning. There was also no stupid small talk like "what's your favorite color" or "what's your favorite food." I know the answers are green and lasagna, I've known that for years. We also never had the awkward introductions to each other's families because we already knew them fairly well. I mean geez, I've been dog-sitting your dog since the 10th grade!

What I love most is how fun our relationship is. It's honestly more like a friendship with some kisses and cuddles thrown in. I love our jam sessions in the car, and I don't think twice about how I look or sound because it's just you, you don't judge me. (You usually sound worse anyway.) I love that you know my past as well. I don't have to sit you down and explain every detail of my life to you because you've lived most of it with me. You know what I love and what I hate, and you know WHY I love or hate something. I also love that my friends are your friends. We all grew up together so we have countless memories together.

Good and bad, we've been through it all and we did it all together. You were there for me after every nasty breakup, you never left my side. When we were both dating other people we told each other everything about our relationships. I gave you a girl's perspective and you gave me your guy's point of view. Through that we each learned how the other thought. I learned what set you off and you learned what drove me crazy.

One day it just hits you that you're meant to be with someone. Someone that you may have known for years. A switch in your head just flips during the most random of times like when having breakfast at McDonald's or sitting in class. The "don't fall in love with your best friend" myth must have been made up by someone that didn't have a best friend like you.

We'll be best friends and more forever.


Your best friend/girlfriend

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
