He terribly missed an old friend today. She was much more than just a friend though.
They had met early in college and kept in touch through the years. They saw each other grow and change through the years; through multiple relationships. He saw her different boyfriends come and go. He taught her how to cope with the hurt of failed relationships. She was also there for all his girlfriends and break-ups. She taught him what it meant to be held when you are broken from inside.
They had their inside jokes, their life perspectives to share. Humor, personality, and a strong dislike of same people – it was all there. They were almost perfect. What was not perfect was their timing. They were never single at the same time. What they loved about each other was never enough to leave who they were with. It was a tough reality that they had to accept and move on.
