Looking through our messages as they have evolved over the years from IM’s and emails to Yahoo! And Gmail chats and now Facebook Messenger and texts, we have been able to use these methods as a way to chat about things that are sometimes uncomfortable.
If you had no fears, what would be the first thing you would do?
“Touching me anywhere at all. Men: sit on your hands if you have to but do not touch a girl on the first date. She will touch you if she likes you.”
Don’t be passive; be patient. Understand that things won’t always go according to your plan, but that’s okay. Trust in the timing. Trust in the unfolding.
This is your story. You are allowed to make mistakes, to erase pieces and rewrite them, to fall down and fail and start completely over with a page turn. You are allowed to love the wrong people and learn painful lessons. You are allowed to decide which faith you want to have, or none at all. You are allowed to kiss, to smile, to laugh, to forgive, to hope.
Attempt to be “one of the guys.” Those are HIS friends. Not yours.
Don’t settle for the ordinary date. Don’t settle for dates that send you home crying. Settle for the extraordinary. For the dates that make you blush in happiness. For the dates that send you smiling from ear to ear. Settle for the dates that make you dream impossible things. That make you believe in love again
We each have a unique apology language that resonates with our hearts.
I am slowly learning that the minimal amount of effort is not enough. It’s not enough to text me without making plans to see me in person. It’s not enough to buy me dinner and drinks if you’re going to end up staring at your phone the entire time.
When you love someone, you do more than promise. You follow through on those promises, you keep your word, you show them you are someone they can always count on.
