He doesn’t want to date you. That’s why he keeps sending mixed signals. That’s why it takes him so long to answer texts. That’s why he always cancels plans.
Walk away from the people who confuse you because that only means they’re confused about you and you deserve someone who knows for sure.
You don’t need anyone else to make your life feel like it’s worth living, because you are strong enough to make it on your own — and you are smart enough to know that there is nothing wrong with being single.
You’re allowed to give your heart to people who don’t deserve it, to try to love people you know you shouldn’t just because you want to know if love is something you’re capable of doing.
Stay single until you are ready to commit. Until you are ready to hand your heart over to one girl. One girl who makes you feel at peace. One girl who makes you feel like you are important. One girl who makes you think of home as a person instead of a place.
When you’re 22, you think your first love will be your only love. And that craft beers are a right of passage.
Human beings are complex creatures no doubt, but deep down many of us just want to feel like our voice is being heard and we feel accepted. Likeable people understand this and make it a point to end each conversation in a way that reinforces that they were listening and that they care.
You were willing to love, be vulnerable, and self-sacrificial. That’s beautiful, so don’t scorn yourself for loving.
You make me laugh until my stomach aches and my snorting makes you laugh even harder. With you I feel like even the most inconvenient of moments are not only tolerable , but easy to get through because we do it together. You’re my teammate, my partner in crime, safety net and best friend.
Whenever I think of you, I think of the night we looked at the stars out of your rear windshield and talked, just talked. Whenever I think of you, it’s purely with fondness. Always, always fondness.
