I think one of the saddest things is when two people really get to know each other: their secrets, their fears, their favorite things, what they love, what they hate, literally everything, and they go back to being strangers. It’s like you have to walk past them and pretend like you never knew them, never even talked to them before, when really, you know everything about them.
'Because forever started the moment she left after our first conversation while she was walking away’
'Because I wanted to walk away with her, with her hand in mine, to a life that I know we can have. She was in my head for days and my chest ached to speak with her. Thats how I know I love her. A month, a year, a day that was all it took. A day, less than that. A conversation and I fell. That was enough. I had to know more. I had to know her. And now I do. And I’ll learn more about her. And guess what?’
Can I tell you a secret? You don’t have to be in a relationship.
I mean it. I know they force it down your throat until you choke on it. Girls aren’t pretty unless they’re wanted. Boys aren’t men unless they’re having sex with someone. People aren’t lovable until they’re dating someone.
But a relationship won’t always make you happy, and as wonderful as romance is, it isn’t the only love that exists. I have seen friendships that are deeper and more pure than couples who swear it’s forever - and yet the friendship is the one people ignore.
I have heard so often “nobody loves me” out of the mouths of people who are single. And it kills me because if you ask them: where are your parents, your teachers, your classmates, your pets - they say, yes, okay, but it doesn’t count. Of course it counts, love doesn’t diminish just because someone doesn’t want to have sex with you. In fact, doesn’t it sort of make that love more real that they want nothing - not even a date - out of you?
It is pretty to be in love. It’s magical, I’m sure. But it’s also wonderful to stop for ice cream in your prom dress with six other girls. It’s also wonderful to go visit the world with nothing but a bunch of buddies who are really excited about learning.
The problem is: we’ve made everything about “the one”. But maybe “the one” is just you, loving yourself, having fun, and being happy. Maybe instead of looking for our other halves, we should be piecing ourselves together.
Maybe I wasn’t born unfinished. Maybe I am the one who makes myself better.
When your boyfriend or girlfriend asks if you are okay..
Don’t lie to them. If y'all are in love, tell them what’s bothering you. They care. It’s okay to be vulnerable with them. Don’t tell them “yes, I’m okay” and you’re not, because then you’ll be mad at them for not understanding your hurt when YOU HAVEN’T EVEN EXPLAINED IT to them. People can’t read minds. Give them the chance to listen, give them the chance to understand. Let them love you, communication is key.
‘You’re not gonna hurt me? I’ve heard that before’
But not from me. I love you - I really fucking love you and it’s not a phase or because I want to fuck. I want to be with you. More than anything. I dream about you. I dream of us kissing and hugging and holding hands and that we made love and it was awkward but incredible. I dream of the life we have now and how it’ll be in the days to come. I think about you and how your skin feels against mine. I love you, I am in love with you. Do you get how hard it is for me to admit this? But I know that if I don’t I could lose you and that… That’s not about to fucking happen. Hurting you isn’t and hasn’t been in my vocabulary. Ever since our first kiss, everything changed. Your lips in that kiss made me realize that I don’t want to kiss anyone else. They are only meant to kiss yours. There is no one else, I want you. With me. Forever. Passed that. I want you with me when we convert to just energy and are among the galaxies and whatever else is out there. I fucking love you and you fucking love me back so stop with this second guessing bullshit because I’m not going anywhere.. Unless you’re hungry then I’ll pick us up some food. Okay?’

Fights are normal when it comes to relationship. What we usually do is to we try to fix things up right away. However it don’t work all the time. It is best to cool down first until both of you are ready to talk about it calmly.
Do you know how badly I want to kiss you? I look at you and my eyes immediately lock onto your lips. I want to kiss your neck and make small bites along it. Every time I see you, I want my lips against yours. I want you up against a wall, on the bed, sitting on a dresser with our tongues wrestling while our lips meet. Its like you’re a drop of water and I’m severely dehydrated.
I want to kiss you so bad that I’ll gladly risk drowning in your kiss. I don’t even care, I’ll give my last breath of air for a taste of your lips.
