I have a friend that I have known for ten years. Everyone thought we would marry. Yes, I loved her we were extremely close. We had even talked about marriage, but we both knew that it was just reason. Sure we could think of 1000`s of good reasons to marry and every councilor and his Mother would have agreed with us.
Yes, I loved her very much and would have even died for her as any good friend would, because we give our all for those we love, after all true love is unconditional.
Yes, I loved her and still do but I am not In Love with her.
Then I met my true soul mate by the time I met Cynthia I was a healthy man with a healed heart...long story for another time....But my heart and soul was "in love with her" and she with me. I did not see her picture for a while before we physically met, because when you are true soul mates and In Love It does not matter and you do not ask anyone’s opinion you just know.
It has been quite a few years now and I`m still in love with her and it keeps getting stronger. I still love my friend....but most Importantly I daily keep my relationship with the true source of Love, true unconditional love, My heavenly father, after all he healed my unhealthy heart that did not know true love in its unblemished form so that my heart and soul could tell the difference between being in Love with someone and loving someone...
Ok that is my ten cents worth...hope I did not confuse you!
Thanks for asking
