My friend is in a crisis. She's met someone who's totally like the guy of her dreams and who's very into her too... unfortunately, this was while she was on holiday in the US and she'll be coming back home before long to work for the next couple of years. She's fallen in love with him - quite possibly for the first time in her life, and she doesn't know what to do.

Me? I'm just trying to be a good friend. Admittedly, there's nothing adequate that you can say to someone in a situation like that. I'm a little envious in a way. Despite my wanting to focus on my career right now, I would quite frankly, like to be with someone. I want to be the kind of person who sweeps people off that feet and make them fall madly in love with me. I want people to look at me and say, "Wow, she's really got a zest for living!"

Why do I want so badly to be someone that I'm not?

But this isn't about me. It's about my friend. And all I'm doing is listening. I guess that's the best thing I can do.
