10 Happy Moments of My Life 1. The first time I held my baby sister in my arms.  I was happy I had someone I could bully! 2. The first time I saw the Eiffel Tour twinkle.  There is nothing about Paris that didn’t fascinate me: the wine, the fashion, the culture, the gastronomy and the people (especially the men!)

My idea of a relationship has always been movies, dinners and sex involving no emotional attachment unless demanded. While I was fooling around with girls, one day I received a call that caught me off guard. My best friend broke the news that she is getting married. My best friend was getting married. Wasn’t I supposed to be happy and ecstatic for her? Instead there was this sinking feeling. I started whimpering, a shudder down my spine and I burst into tears because that very moment it dawned upon me that I’ve been in love with her all this while. 9 long years and I never acknowledged my feelings, and now it was too late to tell her.
