She struck just the right wound when she said I can only love what I cannot have.

My only reply was "You have no idea how right you are."

After all, I always have been alone.

I have some great stories of the women in my life and how they were beyond my reach for various reasons before I even met them.

But that's not why i'm writing this.

I'm writing this because I'm only now realizing that nearly every woman I ever fell in love with was someone who was at one point the girlfriend of a friend of mine.

I keep doing it because I see them happy and in love with someone else. I see how beautiful they are like that. And so I fall for them. And I see my friends happy with them, and i'm jealous. I want what they have. That happiness. That beautiful girl.

I don't know how I never noticed before.

But I definitely know it's there now. I'm chasing one of them.

i've been there before unfortunately, and i know you don't want to hear it but 90% of the time it's better to just let them be happy and find someone else. because in the end no one is really happy after you've tried your best to make her yours

to the OPP comment: hilarious. Well said.

To the other comment: to clarify, with one exception, I never try for them while they're still dating my friends, if you got potentially confused. The one time I did try to pull someone away like that, it didn't work anyway and yeah, it's generally bad all around so I don't bother with that anymore. But is it still bound for fail even if they're single now?
