1. “She made me feel like what I gave her was enough, like I was enough.” —Alex, 25

2. “She thinks for herself. She doesn’t laugh at all my jokes, or pretend to constantly agree with me. If my jokes aren’t funny, she says so, and if she disagrees with me, she’ll make sure I know. I like that about her.” —Mike, 26

3. “When I realized she was willing to do things for me just to make me happy I was like alright, maybe I’ll stick with this one.” —Cal, 23

beetlejuice

4. “She barely even talked to me at first. I think she actually hated me in the beginning, or at least acted like it. She basically seemed completely disinterested, and that caught my interest. Not saying the chase always works, but it definitely made me want her more. I think a girl just wants to know how much you really want her, and I really wanted my girlfriend, and yeah maybe it was because she didn’t want me…Now she loves me.” —Vince, 26

5. “Honestly, she’s amazing in bed. The first time we slept together I just thought, no way I’m letting her go anywhere.” —Ryan, 25

beetlejuice

6. “She’s completely secure with who she is. She doesn’t yell at me for looking at another woman and she doesn’t beg me for compliments like her life depends on my approval.” —Nick, 27

beetlejuice

7. “She’s just as weird as I am, and I absolutely love it.” —Paul, 24

beetlejuice

8. “She’s extremely motivated, all on her own. There’s nothing more attractive than a girl with motivation.” —Lucas, 25

beetlejuice

9. “She’s not a whiner. Any other girl I’ve been with is always complaining, either about me or something I did. She’s not like that.” —Bailey, 27

beetlejuice

10. “She makes more money than I do…Just kidding, but it does help that she has a job and can support herself.” —Jay, 26

beetlejuice

11. “She didn’t pressure me to be with her. We never had to have the ‘so what are we’ conversation because she didn’t rush me into a relationship that I didn’t want to be in. It was just simple with her, there was no guessing, or games, we knew we liked each other, and that was that. I wouldn’t want to be with anyone else, so that’s why I’m obviously with her.” —Peter, 24

beetlejuice

12. “She’s just genuine. She’s genuinely a good person, and she has a good heart, and I could see that from the moment I met her. You’ll never see a fake smile on her face, and I love her smile for that reason, it’s real.” —Daniel, 26

beetlejuice

13. “I think it was just timing. I met a great girl at a time in my life when I was clearly ready for a relationship. Before that, I was either meeting the wrong girls, or just not ready to be with one person. Timing finally worked in my favor.” —Jack, 25 TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

    I admire the beauty in all of these responses. I broke up with a woman recently because I had two days off. One was spent with my mother in a nursing home, where my sister and I had to bathe her always against her will. And on the other day off I felt had to be spent with my girlfriend. My girlfriend was the nicest person in the world, pretty, wonderful, absolutely wonderful. I just couldn’t handle it. There was no time for myself. I had a heart attack a couple of week after we broke up. Work, my mother, oh and genes took me down. I have always wanted somebody, but I guess it is never going to happen.
