“How many girls I’ve been with. I round the number down…significantly.” — Sam, 24
The “one” isn’t waiting for you with the glass slipper that fits you perfectly. The one is someone you choose, because you know when you’re with them, that’s exactly where you want to be.
If you don’t, you will stay hung up on this feeling; you’ll remain in this sentimental limbo, playing “should I, or should I not” with yourself, and you have better things to do with your time than become a slave to your inner monologue.
Don’t restrict yourself because you don’t want to seem demanding or overbearing or bored. Tell them what you want so they can feel comfortable telling you what they want. That way neither of you have to guess what the other wants, and neither of you end up feeling empty.
Sex, literature, and food shopping should all be freeing indulgences we’re able to mix up.
I can’t fall in love over a phone.
So, let’s concede — sarcasm has a valuable place in communication … but only in certain situations.
I wish I could tell you what you’re hoping to hear. I want to rush in the door with a letter from your hopeful suitor. I would be your Chris Harrison.
Just please don’t tell me things if you don’t mean them. Always be honest with me and if you aren’t feeling like we are right for each other just tell me.
You feel comfortable enough expressing to them a deep and passionate longing for the both of you to be together in the same city—whether that’s through the form of liking all of their photos on Facebook or texting them a needy “I MISS YOU.”
