Dating Tips For When The Guy You Want To Date Literally Lives With His Girlfriend Across The Country

1. Be positive! Yes, he lives with his girlfriend, and yes, he lives in a completely different city than you on the opposite side of the country — but this is love! It’s Fall and magic is in the air! And you want him, so you should get him, that’s how everything works. Just think positive thoughts and everything will fall into place. Make zero changes to who you are as a person.

2. Don’t try so hard! Play hard to get! I know, you actually live 3,000 miles away and he’s not trying to get you at all because he has a girlfriend and they live together, but that doesn’t mean you should act so desperate. Be the Cool Girl of his dreams and never talk to him — he’ll come crawling to you.

3. Keep your dating standards high! Do not date anyone else while you miserably pine over this guy. He’s the one. You know he’s the one, because he’s dating someone who isn’t you. Haha, it literally doesn’t make any sense that he’s not in love with you!?

4. Get your hopes up! Once you’ve set unrealistic dating standards, it’s time to drive yourself insane by convincing yourself that this could actually happen. Once you’re in the same city, there’s no conceivable way he’d choose his live-in girlfriend of several years over you. You’re so laid-back!

5. Befriend his girlfriend. Haha, what? That would be crazy! Shut up, do it.

6. Pine endlessly over him! His dark eyes, his smile, his sense of humor, the way he looks at his girlfriend in Instagram photos. Sigh. It’s gonna be great when he somehow falls in love with you without you making any effort or being right for him in any way.

7. Can you make yourself look like his girlfriend? Maybe do, like, a little Parent Trap swap on him? Haha, I’m just kidding (if you think this isn’t that crazy, please email me).

8. Stare at his name on Facebook messenger and will him to message you first so that he can fall in love with you! Like, I’ve listened to The Secret on Audiobook, this is what it was all about. Brain power!

9. Fantasize your future together! It’s the life he’s currently living with his girlfriend, but with you instead. He doesn’t really love her, does he? TC mark

Essential Poetry for Women Who Give No Fucks

This is for the women who are first to get naked, howl at the moon and jump into the sea. This is for the women who seek relentless joy; the ones who know how to laugh with their whole souls. The women who speak to strangers because they have no fear in their hearts. This is for the women who drink coffee at midnight and wine in the morning, and dare you to question it. This is for the women who throw down what they love, and don’t waste time following society’s pressures to exist behind a white picket fence. The women who create wildly, unbalanced, ferociously and in a blur at times. This — is for you.

“When Janne has a new poem written, I shut my life down to do nothing but read it, and then when I turn my life back on, everything is better.”
