A Letter to the Girl Who Ends Up Loving My Best Guy Friend

First off I think you’re great. I am so happy that my best friend has found someone like you, someone actually deserving of his love. I also want to say thank you for being you and loving him the way you do.

Being his best friend, I have watched him get his heart broken over and over again. He gives it away and never really gets it back in one piece. At this point I’m not sure he believes he is worthy of love and I don’t really blame him after all he’s been through.

Now I don’t need to tell you what a great guy he is, clearly you already know that. He’s honestly probably one of my favorite people on this planet and always will be because of his big heart.He and I have been through a lot together from heart breaks, to new jobs, and tragedies to just about everything in between. No matter what I’ve gone through I know I can count on him to be there and I will always be there for him.

Obviously we’ve seen each other at some pretty great highs and some very low lows, but in all our years of friendship, I have never seen him as happy as he is with you.

Like I said before I think you’re great, and I want nothing more than for you two to live happily ever after, and in order for that to happen I have a few things for you to keep in mind based off what I’ve seen him go through.
You need to not only tell him but also show him just how much he means to you. He is a very trusting person and will believe whatever you tell him, but if your actions don’t match your words his insecurities and past experiences will get the best of him. At times it may come off as jealously but really it is just him putting up a wall so he doesn’t get a repeat of his past. He doesn’t really believe he even deserves a girl like you and is afraid you’ll take off like the rest of them have so please remind him that he truly does deserve you.
There are a few guys who I know you’ve met and probably thought “really, you’re friends with these guys???”. Trust me, I have thought the same thing more than once and I’m friends with them myself. Don’t get me wrong they’re a bunch of rowdy rednecks who tend to get in a little trouble, but under those big tough guy exteriors their hearts are just as big and his is. Now I know he will devote every waking second to making you happy if you let him, but I need you to let him go spend time with these goofballs every once in awhile because he will loose himself along the way if he doesn’t get a reality check from the boys every now and then and trust me, they’ll love you for it too.

This is something I can’t stress enough. I know it is hard for most people to believe a guy and girl can be just friends, and I’d be lying to you if I said we weren’t more because he is family. He is my best friend, brother, confidant, the person I go to when my life is in shambles, and quite frankly I need him in my life. Please know that I am of not threat to your relationship and never will be, he is all yours. All I ask is that you continue to let me be a part of his life and I’d love for you to be a part of mine because any girl that can make him this happy already has a place in our crazy little group.

This boy deserves all the happiness in the world, so please, be careful with his heart.


His best friend.
