But what you should know, deep down, is that this is what was meant to happen.
going down on him
You’re allowed to be upset about him leaving. Even if he was never your official boyfriend. Even if he was an asshole who doesn’t deserve your tears.
When he tells you he loves you, accept the words. Accept the feeling.
I fell in love with the fall, and with him, all at once. And I knew right then and there that I was never going to fall back down.
All you ever wanted was an ounce of his affection, to merely be considered, but instead, you were given a slow dose of avoidance and nonchalance topped off with a final telephonic note of your worth.
You are going to be lucky. Because by the time you will have him, he’s gonna be a changed man.

You’re wasting your time trying to change a tin man. You’re wasting on your heart on him. You’re wasting away and your getting so tired. So stop. Stop hoping that it will work out. Stop praying that he will be different tomorrow or the next day, or the next day.
He is not the last guy who is going to flirt with you. Who is going to hold you close to cuddle and plan out exciting dates and tell you how much he misses you when you aren’t around.
