When Your Soulmate Was There All Along: The Story of Falling in Love with My Best Friend
Have you ever looked back on your life and realized that the person you were meant to be with was right in front of you all along? That’s exactly what happened to me when I fell in love with my best friend. It wasn’t a sudden revelation or a grand gesture – it was a slow burn, a gradual realization that the one who had been there for me all these years was also the one I wanted to spend forever with. In this post, I’ll share my story of falling in love with my soulmate and how sometimes, true love is found where you least expect it.
Meeting My Best Friend
When I was younger, I never thought that I’m in love with my best friend. But, looking back, I can’t imagine my life without him. We’ve been through so much together and we just seem to fit perfectly.
I remember the first time we met like it was yesterday. We were both in the same kindergarten class and instantly hit it off. We were always doing things together and he quickly became my best friend. As we grew older, our friendship only got stronger.
Then, one day, something changed. I started to see him in a different light. It was like all of a sudden I realized that I’m in love with my best friend. But, even though I knew how I felt, I didn’t want to ruin our friendship so I kept it to myself.
Fortunately, it turned out that he felt the same way about me! We finally confessed our love for each other and started dating shortly after that. And now, years later, we’re still together and happier than ever before.
If you’re wondering if it’s possible to fall in love with your best friend, the answer is yes! Our story is living proof that soulmates really do exist and sometimes they’re right there in front of you the whole time.
Growing Closer Over Time
It’s been said that soulmates are not necessarily the person you’re meant to be with forever, but rather the person who helps you become the person you’re meant to be. I never really understood what that meant until recently when I fell in love with my best friend.
Since high school, we have been inseparable. We’ve been through everything together – heartbreak, job losses, and family tragedies. And through it all, we’ve just kept getting closer. It’s like we were always meant to be together.
Now, I don’t know what the future holds for us, but I do know that I can’t imagine my life without him by my side. He’s my best friend, my partner in crime, and the love of my life. And I am so grateful to have him in my life.
Signs that Love Was Growing
When you’re in love with your best friend, it’s easy to see the signs that love was growing all along. Here are a few of those signs:
1. You always felt comfortable around each other. There was never any awkwardness or tension, even when you were first getting to know each other.
2. You could talk for hours without running out of things to say. In fact, conversation flowed so easily between you that it often felt like you could read each other’s minds.
3. You shared the same sense of humor. And it could make each other laugh until your sides hurt.
4. You enjoyed doing the same things and had similar interests. This made spending time together feel natural and effortless.
5. You always looked forward to seeing each other again, and felt a pang of disappointment when you had to say goodbye.
6. You started making plans for the future together, without even realizing it. I just felt like it was the most natural thing in the world to do.
Taking the Leap of Faith
It was the middle of summer and my best friend and I were spending every day together. We had just graduated high school and were both headed to different colleges in the fall. We were both a little sad about it, but we tried not to think about it too much.
One afternoon, we were lying on the grass in my backyard, staring up at the clouds. We started talking about what our lives would be like in 10 years and where we wanted to be. We both agreed that we wanted to be married with kids by then.
Out of nowhere, he said, “I’m marrying you.”
“What?” I asked in disbelief.
“I’m going to marry you,” he repeated. It may seem crazy, but I’ve known for a long time that you are the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. I love you.”
I was completely shocked. I had always thought of him as a friend, never anything more. But as I looked into his eyes, I realized that he was right – we belonged together.
As a result, I took the leap of faith and said yes to the opportunity. And now, five years later, we’re still married and happier than ever. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of faith – and a whole lot of love – to find your soulmate right in front of you.
Pros and Cons of Being in a Relationship with Your Best Friend
There are both good and bad things about being in a relationship with your best friend. On the plus side, you already know each other very well and have a strong foundation of trust and friendship to build from. You also know each other’s quirks and weaknesses and can accept each other more easily than someone you’re just getting to know.
On the downside, however, being in a relationship with your best friend can sometimes feel like you’re dating yourself. There’s less excitement and novelty, and it can be easy to take each other for granted. Additionally, if your relationship ends badly, it can be difficult to go back to just being friends.
Overall, whether or not being in a relationship with your best friend is a good idea depends on the individual situation. If you’re both ready for something more serious and you’re confident that your friendship can weather any storms, it can be a wonderfully fulfilling experience. But if you’re not sure or if there are already cracks in your friendship, it’s probably best to steer clear.
Adjusting to Our New Life Together
Best friends make the best soulmates. They know you inside and out and love you anyway. And when you finally realize that your best friend is the love of your life, it’s the best feeling in the world.
I never thought that I’m in love with my best friend. But then, I never thought I’d be lucky enough to find my soulmate at all. So when it happened, it was a complete shock—but a happy one.
Adjusting to our new life together has been both easy and hard. Easy, because we already know each other so well and hard, because we’re still getting used to being more than friends. But it’s all worth it because I can’t imagine my life without him by my side.
It wasn’t until I was older that I realized falling in love with my best friend was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. We’ve been through everything together and our relationship is stronger than ever.
I can’t imagine my life without him by my side and I’m so grateful that we found each other. If you’re lucky enough to find your soulmate,
don’t let them go. cherish their friendship and love them with all your heart.
