When I was dating my last significant other, if he didn’t want to take that public speaking class with me or try a new church, it literally never occurred to me to just go on my own and take that opportunity to meet some new people and explore a potential new interest. Now I do it all the time.
Don’t ask someone to meet your friends as “the next logical step in a relationship” even if you don’t see the “relationship” going anywhere.
I once told a girl I had a thing for that I wanted to get her boyfriend pregnant. Drunk me thought that this would make her jealous.
That I wasn’t holding onto another person, but to an answer, and to hope. I’m not sorry you didn’t end up being that for me. I’m grateful, because it made me see that the love I was trying to replace wasn’t totally gone.
When their hands run across your body, you think about how much they care. You think about how they will be there for you. Forever, you think. Forever, you hope.
If you’re like me, if you’re really ready for that day, you’re wondering how to make it come faster, despite all of the “insta” in the way.
There is nothing more painful than love that is withheld.
I don’t want to be swept off my feet. I don’t want to be head over heels. I don’t want to depend on you. I don’t want to need you.
I’m not going to give you any advice because you need to find that confidence you had to handle this yourself.
I learned to run away from affection until my lungs threatened to rip out of my chest.
