Obviously I'm not dating my best friend romantically.My point is that I never feel the need or desperation to find a boyfriend because I've been able to fill my life with honest, loving, supportive people who help me to realize my worth without a boy.
We sleep next to each other in a small dorm room, we eat nearly every meal together, I love everything about her and she knows all of my worst habits and still wants to be around me regardless.
I am dating my best friend, and I couldn't be happier.
As you can imagine, we are not in a traditional relationship, there is no romance or hand holding, but there is a ton of laughter and happiness.
I can tell her anything without fearing judgement or ridicule and I know that she knows she can expect the same treatment from me.
My relationship with my best friend makes me love myself and have enough confidence to never feel like something is missing in my life.
