Stop acting like you’re special. We don’t all want to date you. We aren’t all in love with you. Don’t get all bent out of shape and weirded out over a text, or over any kind of interest in your life or who you are as a person. If I like you, I will make it known.
We all get so caught up in acting specific ways and imitating behavior of successful relationships, but copying what we think is right will only lead to failure.
In another life, maybe we could have made it work. But for now, I have to be selfish and do what I think is right.
When you find someone who makes you forget the rules you once had, you should do whatever you can to keep them.
How do we keep going when the things that are supposed to keep us going are the things that tear us apart?
There’s a fine line between being likable and being manipulative.
1. There are absolutely no rules
2. Whenever someone gives you a list of rules, always throw out Rule #1.
“Both my mom and grandmother used to always warn me about going to sleep with my hair still wet. They were convinced that it would give me arthritis??? Not sure if there is actual science backing that, but I always wash my hair in the morning just in case.” — Jenny, 20
Spoiler alert: life is hard and messy. It’s also lovely and beautiful. Stop worrying about some deadline you’ve made up in your head or one that someone else, that’s not going through what you’re going through, has tried to push your way.
If you kiss someone and see fireworks, tell them that it meant something to you.
