Like.. How can you tell if you really really like, or even love someone, like in a romantic way? I mean, I have this friend, and I've never thought about doing stuff with him, or being in a relationship with him, or any of that, I always considered him one of my great friends, someone I could call when I was down and stuff. And then he told me he was writing stories for this girl.. And she sent him some illicit pictures, which you can kinda figure he masturbated over, since he masturbates.. And he was calling it a relationship.. Ohfuck, I thought I was going to stop breathing.. I couldn't take it, I went silent, I couldn't even force myself to pretend it was okay. I honestly felt like someone went and stepped on my heart, squeezing all the life out of it. I still feel that exact way, and I haven't said a word since I hung up on him, since I know I'll start crying.. But I just don't see how I can feel that way, when it's not romantic.. Or is it, and I'm not seeing it?
