Definitions

there are people who are friends and there are the kind of friends that you connect on a level that's beyond words and descriptions.

there are people who you have to sit for a while to squeeze out two lines in an email and then there are those who you see every day, live with, share the same dirty dishes, walk by the same piece of paper on the floor that has been sitting there for the last 2 days and both are too lazy to bend down and pick it up, you talk every day, see each other every day but still find them interesting and captivating enough to want to go out for a drink at night to find sitting and talking that time flies and you go home because you need to get up early the next morning. and the next morning you sit, drink your coffee, eat breakfast and talk again and again it's the most best conversation ever.

words like "love" and "friend" are too shallow in english. because we use the same word to describe our love for tacos and for someone you care so much about. and we use the same word "friend" for someone you sit by in a class and for someone you share your soul with. doesn't cut it, people, just doesn't cut it.

You've made me think about the relationship I've just broken up from... we'd say goodbye in the morning and by morning tea we were hanging to have a coffee together, just to be in each others presence. Then by lunchtime we were planning on where to meet again!
He was the best friend I've ever had. But a bordem started to set in... and that sense of timelessness started to fade. We started to know too much about each other, the mysteries disappeared. The conversations became the same... repeating... rotating... cycles...

This is a beautiful post. I bet/hope the person about whom you are writing this feels that same way about you. Best friends and soul mates are amazing people.

Ok, this is really weird. I tried typing in your website address but transposed two letters, so mistakenly typed in this: http://www.kontrabanda.blogpsot.com/ Check out what it is. Crazy!
