More like a Prayer

Hey baby, are you listening out there?

I haven’t heard from you in a while

and this is feeling more like a prayer

I haven’t stopped thinking about you

since you first caught my eye

And do you remember the first time

I kissed you cause you were too shy

We lit a flame but baby do you still feel the heat

when you’re so far away?

Adore You

I wonder if she enjoys being in your arms as much as I did

Does she know how good she has it?

Does she adore you as well as I did?

I never tasted lips so sweet before

Does she feel the same 

Or are you somehow playing for second place?

She has thousands more nights by your side

Does she know what I would give for just one more?

I hope she treasures you

I hope she doesn’t take for granted

What was so precious to me.

Friends or More?

Should you date your friend? Or perhaps more accurately, is it worth the risk to date your friend and possibly lose the friendship if it does not work out?

Lots of solid relationships state that an important component is their friendship. Sometimes they start out as friends and some times they don’t, but always they insist that their significant other is their best friend who they tell all their embarrassing stories, hopes, and fears to. So one might think dating a friend would be a great idea because that aspect is already there and has built a strong foundation.

Of course once you cross that threshold from just friends to more than friends, its near impossible to go back. This has got to be the strongest reason people with crushes on their friends give for not pursing it. They don’t want to lose that friendship and closeness. They would rather have them in their life as a friend then risk becoming closer and then ending up with nothing. Sometimes friends don’t want to mess up the group dynamic by dating or sub consequently breaking up.

The thing is if you’ve naturally floated into the territory of daydreaming about one friend in particular then it may be worth digging into. He already knows your interests and dislikes pretty well. You already know about his bad habits and future plans. If you know all this and still can’t stop thinking about him then it may be time to start pushing the friendship boundary and see if he feels the same way about you.

If you don’t try, you’ll always wonder. You may become self conscious or doubt yourself more if you start thinking, well why hasn’t it crossed his mind yet to date me!? Maybe he didn’t think you’d like him back, maybe he has too much on his plate and wouldn’t be able to give you the effort you deserve. All I know is that it’s an unhealthy mental state to be wondering about all the possibilities and insecurities without any sold facts. It will give you a peace of mind to hear his sides of things no matter the outcome.
