Forever Friend

As kids we typically gravitate towards friends who are the same gender as ourselves. That’s one thing I’ve never understood. I have always been the opposite. My closest friendships have always been with men. For some reason I don’t play well with women. When I was younger it never really mattered.

In my adult life I have found that it’s not quite as easy. People always say that men and women can never be just friends. I completely disagree because I know from personal experience that it is very possible. However, in dating it has always caused problems.
When my fiancé and I started out we were living in different states. The distance made jealousy worse. He was uncomfortable with my best friend being a man (even though we have been friends since I was 12). He never asked me to stop talking to him, yet I knew it bothered him and cut all communication with a man who has been a huge part of my life. It was only temporary, but I wanted my fiancé to be happy.

Not having that friendship was heartbreaking. There were many times I would pick up the phone to call him only to realize I shouldn’t. It got to the point where I was having strange dreams about a dear friend. When my fiancé and I were finally living together I had a hard time reaching out to him again. Yet my dreams weren’t stopping and I knew that they never would unless I did something about it.

Luckily, even though I had hurt him he was still there waiting with open arms. I still feel terrible for cutting him out of my life. I felt it was right at the time, but it wasn’t. I learned that friends are valuable and precious. You need them more than you may realize. The good news is that true friends will always be there when you need them.
