"How different would I be, if I’d never met him? Might I have had a normal dating life like my friends did, flitting from one guy to the next, never getting too serious or too invested in one while I was still so young? Who would I be if I hadn’t endured the heartbreak of losing him and losing that part of myself that was built around him?"
How do you respond to this?
"You are amazing. You have your life together, you are doing you, you’re educated (more so than I am and that seems to be a hard find now a days), you don’t have kids or a baby daddy (another hard find), we have things in common that I’ve never shared with someone I’m attracted to. You have goals, dreams, and aspirations, and you’re following or pursuing them all. All of those things I find completely sexy. But you’re not the kind of girl that guys casually date. You’re the kind of girl that guys should be with because they want you in their lives forever. I want to make sure that I want you for the right reasons, not because I’m lonely or because Id rather be in a relationship than be single."
"I wish people could just say how they feel like ‘Hey I really don’t like when you do that to me’ or ‘Hey I’m in love with you’ or ‘Hi I really miss you and I think about you all the time’ without sounding desperate. Why can’t everyone be painfully honest and just save people the trouble."
