Here’s something else to think about: calling when

Here’s something else to think about: calling when you say you’re going to is the very first brick in the house you are building of love and trust. If he can’t lay this one stupid brick down, you ain’t never gonna have a house baby, and it’s cold outside.

People always fall in love with the most

People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other?s personalities. Who wouldn?t? Anybody can love the most wonderful parts of another person. But that?s not the clever trick. The really clever trick is this: Can you accept the flaws? Can you look at your partner?s faults honestly and say, ?I can work around that. I can make something out of it.?? Because the good stuff is always going to be there, and it?s always going to pretty and sparkly, but the crap underneath can ruin you.

Well?” Ron said finally, looking up at Harry.

Well?” Ron said finally, looking up at Harry. “How was it?”
Harry considered it for a moment. “Wet,” he said truthfully.
Ron made a noise that might have indicated jubilation or disgust, it was hard to tell.
“Because she was crying,” Harry continued heavily.
“Oh,” said Ron, his smile faded slightly. “Are you that bad at kissing?”

If he?s not calling you, it?s because you

If he?s not calling you, it?s because you are not on his mind. If he creates expectations for you, and then doesn?t follow through on little things, he will do same for big things. Be aware of this and realize that he?s okay with disappointing you. Don?t be with someone who doesn?t do what they say they?re going to do. If he?s choosing not to make a simple effort that would put you at ease and bring harmony to a recurring fight, then he doesn?t respect your feelings and needs. Busy is another word for asshole. Asshole is another word for the guy you?re dating. You deserve a fcking phone call.

To be rejected by someone doesn’t mean you

To be rejected by someone doesn’t mean you should also reject yourself or that you should think of yourself as a lesser person. It doesn’t mean that nobody will ever love you anymore. Remember that only ONE person has rejected you at the moment, and it only hurt so much because to you, that person’s opinion symbolized the opinion of the whole world, of God.

I’m about to make a wild, extreme and

I’m about to make a wild, extreme and severe relationship rule: the word busy is a load of crap and is most often used by assholes. The word “busy” is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. It seems like a good excuse, but in fact in every silo you uncover, all you’re going to find is a man who didn’t care enough to call. Remember men are never to busy to get what they want.

Let?s start with this statistic: You are delicious.

Let?s start with this statistic: You are delicious. Be brave, my sweet. I know you can get lonely. I know you can crave companionship and sex and love so badly that it physically hurts. But I truly believe that the only way you can find out that there?s something better out there is to first believe there?s something better out there. What other choice is there?
