Dear Miss Jia,
I’m writing to see if you and your readers could share your expert opinions with me! I feel like I’m literally going crazy over here! Lol. Hope its not too long! I’m just gonna jump right into it, but where do I begin…
So, I have this really good friend who I met back in high school. We weren’t really all that close back then, which I often regret, but there was DEFINITELY mutual love and respect in the midst. Ever since the first day I met her in our 6th hour English class I was hooked. I dug her laid back personality, her semi stud-like appearance and her killer smile, anchored by two perfect little dimples. There was something that I just HAD to get to know more about in her. At the time, I was still trying to figure out my own sexuality and was really unsure, and even insecure about myself as a person, let alone dealing with being a lesbian. Sn: With the upbringing I had, homosexuality is SO a “no go”. Anyway. All during our junior year, I’d be stuck in class with her practically drooling over this cute little African hottie slash transfer student like ALL THE TIME. lol. And I was miserable. Seriously miserable.
But nevertheless, my friend was there, so I dealt with it. Unfortunately, our time together was short lived. She was only at my school for a year. Due to her personal living situation, she was forced to move from city to city on a regular. So, when I found out that when wouldn’t be coming back to spend senior year with me I was heartbroken. I just knew I would never get the chance to tell her how I felt about her since day one. As a last ditch effort to keep a connection, I wrote her a short and sweet little note. It pretty much just said how I regretted not getting to know her more and “don’t be a stranger.” I closed it with a reminder that I’m just a phone call away. Sadly, she never called.
