“At the end of their relationship she asked if they could still remain friends. His face stayed expressionless until he said ‘No’. Because we put friends in boxes. You see them once in awhile, or even a lot, but still they have their box in your life, their specific place. Their *category.* That’s one of the great things about being someone’s love— you have no box in their life because you’re part of all their boxes. You’re their friend, their lover, their confidante— all those things. I don’t want to be put in one of your boxes and I don’t want to shrink you to fit into one of mine.”
