Chandler would have died alone without Monica.
There have been points in my life where I wanted serious commitment — the exclusive relationship, the cute Instagram photos, soft talks in bed that go well into the wee hours of the morning; all of the mushy stuff that…
I will never stop getting my hopes up in dating, and neither should you. I can’t help but get my hopes up because it’s how I’m wired. It’s in the thoughts running through my mind and in the blood running through my veins. I don’t ever want apathy to take over and turn an exhilarating adventure into a mundane task.
There comes a point where you just want to escape from the plethora of scenarios running through your head and hear a fucking answer — any answer — from them. Then you realize that answer is never going to come.
We had our run, and we had our fun, but the run got exhausting and the fun
stopped altogether. Our flickering flame burned out, and our time in the sun

Thank you for choosing me, when there are a million other guys you could have made just as happy. Thank you for letting me love you, and for the love you have given me. Thank you for giving me reason to belief that true love exists, and for the experience that comes along with it once it is found.
I had no idea that you gave me your number as a formality, or that when you said you would love to get together again, it would be the last time I ever heard your voice. I left thinking, “This could be the start of something,” while you watched me go knowing it was the end.
