July 30, 2012 by Tom McG I am probably a dope but why can’t you look at her? If you call her your best friend, it sounds as if you were in the “friend-zone” and she didn’t know you loved her. Is it your feelings about your step-brother (hatred, disgust, admiration?) that make you dispise her so much? Is it she couldn’t read your mind, no matter how obvious the situation seemed to you, and chose someone else, even if for only one time? She is still the person you fell in love with. She is still that person that you feel in “best friends” with. Talk to her!!! You will most likely severely regret throwing away a friendship; a potential partner, without even giving it a chance. Unless she knew how you felt and was committed to you; it is NOT her fault that you feel slighted. TALK to her!!!
