friends with benefits quote

if you find you are surrounded by toxic people… 

  • CUT. 
  • THEM. 
  • OUT.

make sure you’re not being taken for granted. you are a beautiful person that deserves to be in good company :))

How could you do something like that to a girl? How do you introduce her to your family and kiss her like you’ll never let her go? How do you go on dates and tell her good morning/night everyday? How do you tell her she’s beautiful and look at her like she’s the only thing in the world? How do you hold her hand and spin her around? How do you invite her over to watch movies and give her your sweater when she’s cold? How do you do all of that and then just leave? How do you do all that and not have it mean anything?
  • Victor: Come on, okay? You're beautiful. You have nothing to be insecure about.
  • Yuri: That is way too emotionally supportive and you need to just lock that shit down.
Why are you settling with him? He isn’t good for you. He’s just using you.”

I sighed. “Who says I’m settling? It isn’t because I’m still seeing him means I’m settling. You think I’m the one in love in this situation? You think that just because a girl is hooking up with a guy means she’s settling? Can it be the other way around? I definitely don’t want to hear any wedding bells with him, if that’s what you mean. He’s not the type. So relax. Stop your stigma. I’m just having my cake, and eating it too.
