One of the most outstanding stories I have read in a teen magazine was "Snow Falling Down" in the February issue. It really stood out because it illustrated a situation that I have experienced. It inspired me because even though I've had romantic inclinations toward a close friend, I have never said anything. Perhaps it was fear of rejection, but it could also have been that I didn't want to ruin our relationship. It's great to read about success in relationships between close friends, instead of failure and regret.
