Everything I Wish I Could Say To My Once-Best Friend

This is everything I wish I could say to my old best friend. It's nothing more, nothing less. It's basically all the emotions, thoughts, and feelings I've kept inside for the past year and a half. It's not super interesting, but you could probably relate to it if you lost your best friend due to nothing more than distance.

I promised you we'd still be friends, that we'd still keep in touch. I promised we'd still go to concerts together, even though that All Time Low one in Orlando, a week before I left for college, was the last one I went to. Instead of concerts, I opted for sorority philanthropy events and studying and work. You kept going to concerts. And as much as I love being busy, nothing could beat the rush of energy during a concert with you.

It was after we had both gotten boyfriends and neither of us told each other about them, that I realized things were different. We hardly talked, unless it was for our own benefit. When I was home over summer, we didn't hang out once, even though I live 15 minutes away from you. Our schedules kept conflicting and eventually I gave up and I went back to college.

I can barely pass a Dunkin' Donuts without thinking about you. It's dumb, I know. But, you're the reason I love iced coffee and specifically Dunkin's iced coffee. When I go on late night adventures with my roommates, I think about our own little late night adventures and coffee runs. I wish they would listen to rock, like us, but I think it may rub salt in my wounds.

There are certain songs and bands I can't listen to without thinking about you. I can't stop remembering how it felt to dance and sing along to our favorite bands in the car. I go through old photos on my phone, just so I can relive old memories in a place where things were easier and happier.

I wish you were here with me. Probably just as you wish I hadn't moved away. I wish you were able to watch me and help me grow, as much as I wish I could with you. Even though I've gained more friends and, thankfully, amazing roommates, it doesn't mean that there's no room for you in my life anymore. Sure, a small distance is a little bit of a barrier, but we told each other almost everything. I miss being able to tell you about my life and I miss being able to listen about yours. I miss complaining together about homework, work, and boys.

I miss being real with each other during our worst days and supporting each other during these times. I miss coffee dates, cats, and concerts. Really, nothing is quite the same without you.

I miss being best friends.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

6349

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.
