5. “That maybe we want the same thing: long term, casual, something in between. Don’t be scared that we want the opposite.” – Keith, 27

6. “To give us a chance, because we are not all the same. Perception can be misleading.

Don’t make us guess.” – Andrew, 28

10. “Don’t judge everyone by appearance.” – Martin, 25

11. “Be yourself. You don’t have to try to be like someone else. We like you for being authentic.” – Sean, 31

12. “We are equal, and it’s nice to feel liked and courted, not only play the hunter. We also have our insecurities and that leads to playing macho and other false parade.” – Hart, 28

13. “Our standards are not physical, we enjoy having a connection with another human being that also happens to look pretty and smell like flowers.” – Andrei, 30

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.

“It’s just wondrous how every time I go through some emotional trauma, your posts are so relatable and it gives me so much hope. I love the writing and the photos. It’s all a pleasure to read. I can’t thank you enough for it, really.” — DM from @ThoughtCatalog Instagram follower
