November 26, 6: We've known each other for 10 years, and our friendship is unusually close. When we met in college, our relationship was flirty and couple-y at first, but we drew New friends and possible ltr boundaries over time and there are no romantic New friends and possible ltr between us possjble.

In turn, she often tells me that she'd be completely lost without me. I feel physical Housewives personals in Palermo CA at the thought of not having her around.
Suddenly, I'm finding myself in crisis mode. I mean, complete and utter despair, to the point of being unable to function, that I might actually be alone for the rest of my life. A bit about me. I'm an extreme introvert, and though my friend New friends and possible ltr tells me how charming and lovable I am, I just don't form bonds with people, even ones who I've known for decades.
This friend is the single exception to the rule. By freak chance, she actually managed to get inside my bubble, which no one before or since had managed to do.

Sometimes I spend the night New friends and possible ltr her place and we cuddle and watch TV.
Trust me, it's not sexual.

I know this seems like it could be a toxic or unbalanced relationship, but we've spoken at length about every minute aspect of our it, and it's worked well for us. We comfort each other through the difficulties of life. But suddenly, I'm realizing that I just turned 30 and—oh my God—everyone around me has paired off. I New friends and possible ltr know why I didn't notice it before, but I'm going to be the last person standing, and it's going to last forever.
