I want to wake up every day, for as many days as I can think ahead, and I want to feel scared. I want to look at him and not know what he’s thinking.
“Next time a guy tells you that nice guys finish last and you’re about to jump straight to “That’s a load of poo,” remember this, we get used, abused, rejected, and ignored, but we still are standing there ready for any chance. Do you have a nice guy in your life that could use a thank you for all that they do?”
They don’t shy away from your dark side.
“I confronted the girl he slept with while we were still together. Instead of slapping her like I had planned, we ended up both crying over him. Turns out, he cheated on her too. Karma is real people.”
“How many girls I’ve been with. I round the number down…significantly.” — Sam, 24
When you are ready to step out of your comfort zone
Come and ask me to share this lifetime with you
But at a certain point, when the rain stops and the sun starts to peak out from the dark clouds that like to weigh on you, you realize that you have to stop waiting. You need to remind yourself of who you were before you met the boy that left you.
“I’m always impressed if a buddy brings a new girl around and she can just walk around and socialize without needing to be standing next to him or clinging to him the entire time. If she just goes off on her own and introduces herself to people, I immediately like her.”
I wish I’d met you when I used to wait for people to make up their minds, when I used to believe that waiting is part of love, when I used to think that waiting for someone will make them come back to you because it means you care. But I met you when I waited and nothing happened, when I waited and they picked someone else, when I waited and I wasted my time and when I waited and I got heart broken. I wish I’d met you when I was capable of waiting for you. But I know better.
It means I can sense you’re at a different pace. It means you like me waaayy more than I like you and I’m not ready for that kind of emotional wave.
