"He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you."
"I might be too young to settle down and marry, but I’m definitely too old to be playing anymore games. I’m too old to just be talking to someone, too old to not know what’s really going on, and too old to be entertaining somebody with no intention of making it work. At this age, I’m only interested in consistency, stability, respect and loyalty. And I want to hear someone tell me that they love me and know they Goddamn mean it."
Some day you will wake up and realize that I am not who you thought I was. You will realize that I don’t look pretty in the mornings without makeup on and with sleepy eyes. You will realize that the sound of my laugh is not adorable, but annoying. You will realize that you hate how my hair always smells of apricot, because you have become accustomed to it and you wish that I would just try something new.
That’s how it is - once you’ve become used to something, it doesn’t thrill you in the same way that it did before.
But for now, please stay.
