Cedar Point - 5/22 - Emotional Rollercoaster

I got off work a bit early and headed out to the park on a beautifully sunny cool afternoon. I met my friend Brooke (more on her later) at the Sandusky Mall and I drove to the park to get some laps in before the park closed. First up?

Wicked Twister. Our wait was only about 20 minutes, but immedieatly, we struck up a conversation wtih the people behind us. To make a long story short, she's the type that goes berzerk on a roller coaster and gets VERY pumped up while waiting in line. The best part is when she was riding...I convinced her to ride the back seat and she screamed loud enough to be heard across the park...hehe. Then we headed over to

Blue Streak.
Once again, BS gave a fantastic ride, lots of airtime and great laterals on the turnaround...good job CP of making this ride better than ever...if only we could get rid of the headrests, indv. lapbars and seat dividers. Decided to do walk toward Area 51 but caught a walk-on ride on Power Tower in the meantime. My restrain wasn't locked properly...the seatbelt kept it down...made the ride great!
I was also trying to work up the nerve to tell my friend Brooke how I felt about her. We've been best friends for a year now and I recently started thinking I wanted her more than just a friend. I planned on telling her at the park.

Magnum next....walk on, seat 1-3. Could've been better...the turnaround was a lot less bumpy, but the trims grabbed hard and killed the intense airtime on the return bunny hops. The final ride of the night was -

Millennium Force - Waited about 35 mins for this ride and no, I didn't tell Brooke anything...this stuff is MUCH harder than a walkdown on Magnum!!!! Rode 2-1 on the Yellow train, and had a great ride. It was running smoothly and gracefully, still amazing.

It was 8:30 by then and the park was shutting down, and the gorgeous sunset was erupting on the western horizon. We left the park and went to dinner, but the opportunity to tell her never came up. Well, I dropper her off at her car and told her...I was speaking directly from the heart, but my mouth got in the way. I was embarassingly tongue-tied and fumbled with my words a lot, but oh well...I said what I wanted to say only to hear her say that "she didn't know what she wanted" which is a nice way of saying no. Oh well, Like most rollercoasters, you end up at the bottom after a lot of ups and downs.

CPLady's avatar Take it from a woman, "I don't know what I want" could very well mean she needs time to think about it. Don't stop being her friend. Sometimes the best relationships, the closest ones, are those you have with a friend. And you never know what the future holds.

I agree with CPLady. Women can be fickle (I know, I'm one). My husband and I were close friends for about 3 years before we starting dating. We've been married for 8 years now. There's nothing better than being married to your best friend. Hang in there, she may come around to the idea once she really thinks about it.

If she is your best friend, let it stay that way. If it is meant to happen it will, if not at least you still have a really good friend.

Glad you had a good time at the Point!

The Guy said:is she hot???

Yeah, forget all this "friends" nonsense, and stick with what's important: "Is she hot?"

You'll get far if you base all your relationships on that.

Sorry you got the "f-word."

this is all really funny...no offense to the original poster. We have women speaking as a voice of reason, and teenaged boys asking if she's hot...funniest stuff i've read in a while.

My advice? I was in a similar situation...in love with a friend. Women don't work like guys. We know right away if we like someone "like that." Women base it more that just appearances. It took her about a year, but she realized that my friendship and honesty with her was more valuable than she thought, and even though I am not the best looking guy in the world, she came around to appreciating me for who I was. We had a great 1 year relationship, and ended it as good friends. Who knows? I say stick with it.

Good luck!
