There's a girl I've known for 5 years now. We met in school, and, after doing several projects together, became good friends and hung out 2 or 3 times a week. Usually we'd give eachother books, go and see movies together, go out to eat, watch concerts, take long walks, but we always steadfast - in our minds and in the minds of our friends - that we were "just friends". I've been secretly in love with her for 2 years, but never told her anything because she had a boyfriend this entire time. -Until last night. We were at her place, watching Return of the Jedi. (We had concluded watching all 6 Star Wars movies chronologically, and, they get better as they go) After the movie ended, we sat on her couch for a while, talking about life. She's about to leave for 3 months to study in another country, so we ended up talking about finding her a boyfriend there. (She broke up with her b/f about a month and a half ago) I was tired, and a little drunk, so I ended up asking her "have you ever thought about dating me?" She thought for a little bit and said "a lot, actually, but I didn't think you liked me that way." I ended up confessing that I had been in love for 2 years, and she said she had liked me for about the same. Well, we talked on for a little longer, and by this point our faces were very close, so I reached over, touched the side of her face and kissed her. We ended up making out for about 2 and a half hours, which felt like about 10 minutes. (Whoever writes "this moment will last forever" or whatever BS in his songs obviously doesn't wear a watch) So anyway, I'm kind of sad, since I won't see her face to face for 3 months now. But not that depressed. I've waited 5 years, 3 months will fly by, right? And, I've also apparently just done the impossible. I kick ass.
