Dear Breakup Girl,

I just wanted to share one of my own experiences that touches on a lot of the stuff you talk about. Although we're broken up now, my ex and I were best friends for a year before we went out. We'd talk on the phone until 1 AM on school nights, be there for each other, do anything for each other -- best friends. He was completely in love with me the whole time,which sounds rude to say, but it's true. I did, admittedly, take advantage of that sometimes. But you know what? After a year of him being there for me for everything, I finally gave in to him and said I would be his girlfriend. Although things didn't turn out so we could be together forever as we'd initially planned, we're only in high school, and it was the best six months of my life. So this letter not only goes out to nice guys for being such great friends, and to tell them to keep being great, it will pay off eventually -- but I also want to encourage girls to give that "nice guy" a chance. For the longest time I always said "I just can't see you that way." But I took a chance -- I didn't know how it would end up. I wondered if it would be weird kissing him, let alone MAKING OUT because we were such good friends, but you know what? We had the best first kiss because we already had mutual respect and love for each other. So those "nice guys" that aren't always the best looking or the most popular might be just exactly what you are looking for and never knew it. So take a chance, ladies, and guys, don't give up yet. Thanks for being so great.

-- Morgan
