To My Best Guy Friend, I Love My Boyfriend but No One Will Replace You

You aren’t just my best guy friend, you are my best friend. You are the person I can tell anything to without feeling judged. We do everything together, and I hope you know how much I love you.

You’re my late night phone call if and when something goes wrong. But even when things are great, we can talk endlessly for hours until the sun comes up. 

I don’t know exactly how you feel about us, but I think we’re on the same page. At least, I’d like to think we’re on the same page, but if we’re not, you need to know so you don’t spend any time fantasizing or wondering what could be. 

I’ve been there. And you of all people know that I’ve been there. I would never want you to feel the same hurt I felt when what I imagined wasn’t real, and never would be. 

I think you’ve realized by now that he has my heart. But he still can’t replace you in my life, you are my bestie, my person. But at the end of the day, he is the one I’ll come home to. 

That doesn’t make what we have any less special. I actually think it makes what we have even more special, and even more beautiful because it’s so unique.

I’d be lost without you. You helped me become the person I am today. And in essence, you helped me become the person he fell in love with, and for that, I’ll always be grateful. 

While another man has my heart, we’ll always have each other to lean on. When I have a fight with him, you’ll be there first one I call. You’ll be the shoulder I cry on. 

And I’ll do the same for you. Because you’re my person, and my person always comes first. You’re one of the most important parts of who I am. 

I’ve thought about it… about us. But it just wouldn’t work. The fact that what we have isn’t romantic is what makes it so special to me. 

The love we have for each other is genuine. There are no ulterior motives, no lies. Just love and support, which is what true friendship is all about. 

We fight for each other and we’d do anything for each other. And we’ll always forgive one another, no matter what we do or what we did. 

He might have won my heart, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love you. There is, and always will be, a place for you there too.
