I’ve always craved a friendship where the two people involved are inseparable. I’ve craved random calls being asked, “Do you want to come over and watch a movie?” To have a friend who refers to me as their “ride or die,” or who thinks of me when they make plans and includes me in those plans, succeeds any shallow connection in my mind.

I just want connection. Is that too much to ask?
