Platonic Love

Platonic Love

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Beside every woman, there is a platonic friend.
You can call it love, or you can just call it a liking, but for what reasons they just can’t be together as one?

Maybe it is because he cherish the friendship too much, too much to consider the notion of chasing after her.
Maybe  it is because of others’ opinions of them being together, they are apart.
Maybe he will be working overseas for a long time, and he doesn’t want her to wait for him.
Maybe they got to know each other too early, to the point they don’t know how to cherish each other.
Maybe they got to know each other too late, when either of them already has a partner.
Maybe when he has realised too late, past the point of no return.
Maybe they have touched each other’s emotions, but yet unable to cross the  line.

Even though they are not together, still they keep in contact with each other as friends.
Even though in their hearts, they know for this person,  that there is a space for each other.

Even though they aren’t able to walk on the streets while holding hands intimately, they still can be friends who has no secrets between them.

When he likes someone, she will offer help even if there is reluctance in the heart.

When she meets difficulties, he will do his best to solve it without another reserve.

When his partner becomes jealous, she would reassuringly tell them “We are just friends.” while in the heart, there is a lingering doubt about it.

In everyone’s lifetime, there is always such a special friend, such a hesitant behaviour.

At the beginning, you are not satisfied with just being friends. However as time passes, you suddenly finds that being like this is enough. You will prefer caring for him this way, rather than living the thought of breaking up one day.

You willingly becomes his friend, never becoming jealous of each other, and yet spare no secrets between each other.

Even in this situation, you know that he will forever care about you.

What is it bad by being not a couple but just a special? In your heart, do you have this special friend?

Who is it?

There are many reasons, many explanations, as to why friendships cannot exist. More often than not, these friendships were strong before.

When the other party confesses his love to you and you do not give a response, this friendship will be hard to maintain. Maybe this is why some do not want to cross this line.
Just like a bet, when a confession fails and a relationship does not materialise, and even being friends is hard.

There are some stuff you cannot predict. Maybe the other party does not mind and still you still can be friends. But not the same kind of friendship as before.

Will you, like the author penned, not talk?

每個女孩身邊都有一個不是男朋友的男朋友

每個女孩身邊都有一個不是男朋友的男朋友
你們可能相愛過 ,你們也可能喜歡著彼此,但是,為了什麼原因你們沒能在一起?

也許他為了朋友之間的義氣,不能追你。
也許為了顧及家人的意見,你們沒有在一起。
也許為了出國深造,他沒有要你等他。
也許你們相遇太早,還不懂得珍惜對方。
也許你們相遇太晚,你們身邊已經有了另一個人。
也許你回頭太遲,對方已不再等待。
也許你們彼此在捉摸對方的心,而遲遲無法跨出界線。

不過即使你們沒在一起,你們還是保持了朋友的關係。
但是你們心底清楚,對這個人,你比朋友還多了一份關心。

即使不能跟他名正言順的牽著手逛街,你們還是可以做無所不談的朋友。

他有喜歡的人,你口頭上會幫他追,心裏卻不是很清楚你是不是真的希望他追到。

他遇到困難時,你會盡你所能的幫他,不會計較誰又欠了誰。

男女朋友吃醋了,你會安撫他們說你和他只是朋友,但你心中會有那麼一絲的不確定。

每個人這輩子,心中都有過這麼一個特別的朋友,很矛盾的行為。

一開始你不甘心只做朋友的,但久了,突然發現這樣最好。你寧願這樣關心他,總好過你們在一起而有天會分手。

你寧願做他的朋友,彼此不會吃醋,才可以真的無所不談。

特別是這樣,你還是知道,他永遠會關心你的。

做不成男女朋友,當他那個特別的朋友,有什麼不好呢?你心中的這個特別的朋友…?

是誰呢?

很多的感情,都因為一廂情願,最後連朋友都當不成了。常常覺得惋惜,可惜一些本來很好的友情。

最後卻因為對方的一句喜歡你,如果你沒有反應,這一段友情似乎也難以維持下去,這也難怪有些人會因此不肯踏出這一步。
因為這就像是一場賭注,表白了之後不是成了男女朋友,要不就連朋友都當不成了。

有些事不是你能預料的,或許對方不在意,你們還可以是朋友,但卻已經不如從前的好.

你们会不会像作者写的一样什么也不说吗?

  3. it happens alot and i believe alot of people can relate to it.
    at least i could.

    if one is willing to forgo the chance of getting together / not take the chance in risking the friendship for something better, this will probably always be the end result of such choices.

        the sad truth, it usually takes tens or hundred more before the right one comes. but try not to give up hope, take chances and/or make mistakes, we'll learn more and know what we want better 🙂
