May this thread inspire you, not depress you. There's love out there waiting for all of us, in some form, so keep your mind and heart open, especially in these dark times. And if that fails, get a cat.
Raisas03 asked: When did you realize you were in love with someone?

Saying I love you is one of the most beautiful, exciting and excruciating moments in life. Saying those three little words can alter the course of many lives. They say it's best to friends first, to be best friends so that builds a foundation of trust. So why would it be so difficult to realize you love a friend and tell them? Probably because they may not respond in a similar fashion and that can make things awkward. But a large percentage of the time it's a risk worth taking. The proof is in the Reddit pudding....
Redditor u/SequelMcGee wanted everyone to tell us all.... What moment made you realize you had romantic feelings for your friend?
The things we believe we see when looking through the prism of innocence. We watch our favorite characters, whether they be fiction or flesh and bone, on the daily in childhood and they make us feel safe or euphoric.
They are some of the people who get us through the journey of life, in good times and bad. Sadly though, when we mature we're forced to see our favorite partners through an adult's spectrum and once nostalgia wears off the effects can be catastrophic. Or enlightening. Or it all stays the same and we briefly relive our happiest times.
Redditor missluluh wanted people to share... What character did you view totally different as a child vs. as an adult?
