I can’t be your friend. You want everything to be fine, for us to continue on and be close but it won’t work for so many reasons. I’ll become the ghost who haunts your current relationship, the name that gets brought up when you fight, the point of contention you hate discussing every time she gets upset.
You start to blame everyone around you, because how could caring too much possibly let this happen repeatedly? Well that’s just it, you have to stop caring.
Just chill. It’s a relationship, not a rat race.
They’ve seen you grow through the awkward and difficult periods. Nothing makes a difference now, so just wear what you want to wear, cut your hair the way you want to and just be you. That’s enough for us.
We never seem to make a connection, and we don’t have to — there are so many options just a swipe away on the other side of your phone, that if you don’t immediately feel sparks and fireworks and whatever cosmic a-ha! moment you think you deserve, you can delete the number and move onto the next person.
He just hasn’t gotten around to calling you yet as he’s been on four other dates since he saw you three days ago.
These are the things that dudes are doing that just INSTANTLY let me know it’s not happening. Not for the long haul or even for one night. #sorrybro
If you’re blaming past relationships for your emotional baggage, don’t, because the time spent on a failed relationship was not time wasted.
It’s not that I don’t want to fall in love again. I can’t wait to fall in love again, but I hope and pray it is a very different kind of love.
