Just 'split up' with my best friend. Could do with a distracting chat. Watch

Hey everyone. Never used the anon feature, doesn't really matter if it doesn't work.

If you don't want to backstory ignore the blue text. Jump to the black. The blue is all mushy boring stuff anyway.

I had a friend in hospital for a long time. I met her while working on a ward. Soon enough we were best friends. Even after I left the ward I visited every day, and was the only friend who never asked questions, and never had a day off. I was there unconditionally. We used to cuddle up, hold hands etc. Nothing beyond that. For the last two years we've been absolute best friends.

A few months ago she got out of hospital, and since then she's been growing away from me. We've had a few previous calls we've realised that what we both want is different, I would like a relationship and she doesn't. For a long while though she did as well. For the last few weeks we havn't touched each other etc, and we havn't been close at all. Tonight we've talked and she's said she can't touch me any more, e.g. cuddle up or whatever because it's not right. Being that close to her is what made her so special. She can't stand me being anything more than some other random friend and I can't stand her being anything less than someone I can hold hands with etc.

It's been coming for a long time and has happened before, but we resolved it; during tonights phone call it was obvious there wasn't a solution, so I texted her a minute ago saying bye and I love you.


I'm pretty distraught and have lost the only person in my life who I can be close to. I've never had a range of really close friends, just 'mates' and then one special person.

So I want distracting.

Conversation topics;

- Very basic French
- Acoustic guitars
- Whether I want to be a doctor

And any others you can think of.

For those who can't see a point in this, fair enough, but you'll just have helped a little during a difficult night.

Blood and guts doesn't bother me. I've been a healthcare assistant since 6th form so I've seen more kinds of crap than I thought possible. From the rock-hard to the runny etc.

Also I'm bacnk staff, so I've worked shifts on A&E. I get a real kick out of the general buzz and think if I could work anywhere it'd be there.

Not sure whether I could justify it though. I'm in a degree at the minute so I'd have been in uni for 8 years by the time I qualified!

What do you do mate?

Thank you by the way.

I've never played one.

On the positive side I was just about to spend near enough a grand on taking her away on holiday for the first time, so that's going in the guitar fund now.

I really fancy a Maton so will work towards that.

Does the Taylor still use the expression system for it's electronics? I havn't played many. Not a huge fan if I'm honest. I like Doyle Dykes though and he uses his signature model Taylor. Wouldn't say no!

Would you ever consider becoming a doctor, who is quite talented in music and languages... And plays acoustic guitar in France?

Or perhaps over here, but specialise in casual French conversations from time to time...?

My dad bought one last year, won't let me anywhere near it, loves it more than he loves me... I believe Taylor still use the expression system, yeah. Not that I know a huuuge amount about that stuff, I just appreciate beauty!

Try listening to Tommy Emmanuel, plays like a dream!

I'd be the most wanted man in the world.

A rich intelligent french speaking doctor musician.

I love France and the language. I've never learnt past GCSE but I've bought myself a CD package and workbook to get better.

On the subject of French, this quote may make you smile, one of my favourites; "le bonheur ne vient jamais comme on l'a imaginé." (apologises for grammatical mistakes etc, I'm only a rookie lover of le french.)

Been to see him three times, met him twice lol.

He's my idol, I've got a photo of the two of us on my facebook profile lol (and hence the reason I want the Maton EBG808 artist);

Dream guitar!

And I can understand where your dad is coming from. If he ever does decide he loves you more I'd be happy to take the guitar off him though...

Haha, it'd be brilliant

I quite fancy picking up languages again after my degree. I did GCSE German & French before that. Started Spanish with my degree but it was such work!

French would be quite useful I think?

+rep, gave me a giggle.

I remember very little french, and what I do remember, is probably half wrong. I'd love to pick it up again. Do you practice french OP?

Unfortunately not. I don't really have the means to. The official french society on here is too advanced for me to get involved in. Like I said though I just bought myself this advanced language learning thing so I'm going to work hard on that.

I'm at a very basic conversational level but when talking to someone I just hear certain words I know then figure out what they mean lol.

I'd quite like to learn russian as well, but that's just because all the baddies on James Bond speak it and learning it would definately make me harder.
