You don’t know how to handle the new emotions. You should probably be happy, excited, grateful — but you’re mostly scared. You never planned for this to happen. You never wanted this to happen.
When someone apologizes for taking so long to text you back, you pretend it’s not a big deal, even though you spend the last three hours staring at your phone and wondering whether you said the wrong thing.
Dating apps suck when you’re still learning to love yourself, when you suffer from extreme insecurities, when you aren’t sure if you are worth being loved back.
VIRGO: You don’t get to turn back time. You don’t get to erase the things you’ve said. You don’t always get a second chance.
You’re strong, even though your anxiety might not make you feel that way. You’re strong, even though you don’t believe those words right now.
Once I find someone I’m interested in dating, I want them all to myself. I don’t want to share. I don’t want to wait to date. I’m passionate and impatient — which makes me get attached easily.
Don’t date him because everyone else you know is getting engaged and you feel like you’re falling behind.
I miss having someone other than my boyfriend who gets me, who is there for me, who makes me burst out laughing when I’m in the worst mood possible.
If it takes her a while to let down her walls, don’t throw a fit about it. Accept that it has nothing to do with you. It has to do with her and her past.
I wouldn’t have such a warped sense of self. I wouldn’t have such a dark sense of humor. I wouldn’t have so many nasty things to say about myself.
