The we’ve been friends since high school friend. They loved you when you were awkwardly blossoming from the acne riddled freshman who carried her entire locker to every class because she was scared of not being able to get a book for biology lab.
You cannot fix people who do not want to be fixed.
The one who says they love you and means it, because friend-love is no less special or in need of being expressed than romantic love.

When you run into someone you used to hook up with in college in real post-college life.
