So I have this friend. I've known him for about 15 years. I love him to bits but have never, ever considered being in a relationship with him - not really for any specific reason. He's just my buddy and we are both a-ok with that.

So why, then, did my brain decide to make me have a very realistic dream in which we were on a really fun date? I was really sad when I woke up and realized it was all a dream. I am....conflicted by what this tells me about my subconscious. Even worse, I know my dumbass brain is going to make it weird for me the next time I see him. Grrrrrrrr.

Brains, how do they work?!
