Look, I love John DeVore, but it would take a brick to the head for me to see him as someone I could have sexual relations with. If you're actually in love with your best friend, there's a 99 percent chance you've been in love with them since the beginning -- you met, you had a crush, that crush was not reciprocated, friendship became the focus but the crush did not go away. Very, very, very rarely in life does someone wake up one day and realize that the person they've been farting in front of without concern for years is the true love of their life. Julia Roberts ("My Best Friend's Wedding"), Patrick Dempsey ("Maid Of Honor'), Ashton Kutcher ("Valentine's Day"), Jennifer Garner ("Valentine's Day"), and Meg Ryan ("When Harry Met Sally") have been telling you dirty, rotten, filthy lies!
