“It’s peering through the window looking at the snowflakes fall, it’s waking up on Christmas morning feeling like a kid again, it’s smiling through the tears, it’s seeing the trees bloom in spring, it’s laying in the grass staring up at the clouds in summer, it’s jumping into a pile of leaves in autumn, it’s the adrenaline rush you get when you’re on a roller coaster, only inches from the top, it’s running against the wind, it’s laughing with your best friends till you get tears in your eyes. It’s reuniting with an old friend, it’s the first, second, and third kiss with someone you love, it’s kissing them years later knowing you made the right choice. It’s all the mystery and wonder of the world at your fingertips. It’s the good life. And it’s yours.”—
“I spent a lot of time being miserable. It’s like misery’s an old friend. And it tricks you sometimes into thinking that it’s just always gonna be there, and that you can’t be happy. But you can. You can walk away from the pain. And i think being in love’s the best way to do it.”—One Tree Hill
“Did you ever do this, you think back on all the times you’ve had with someone and you just replay it in your head over and over again and you look for those first signs of trouble?”—500 Days of Summer
“Love isn’t about the romantic nights or gifts. It isn’t about fireworks going off around you when you have that first, real, kiss. Love isn’t about kissing in the rain and dancing beneath the stars. It isn’t about the big moments or the big surprises. Love is not a fairytale. Love is about still having the butterflies after years. It’s about the second looks and laying in bed wide awake, all night, because you can’t go to sleep mad at each other. It’s about being willing to sacrifice, literally, everything for someone, just because you care so deeply for them. It’s not about buying them gifts, but it’s about leaving them little presents here and there, just to remind them that you are constantly thinking about them. Love is about all of the little things, that add up to really big things. Love is rare and special, but should not be treated as if it will break. Love needs to be thrown around and beat up a little bit, worn in, but not worn down. Love needs to be a comfortable feeling, a place to go when NO ONE else in the world can relate. A safe place, where you know that no matter how ugly you look or how angry you are, you will still be… loved.”—
“Ask most people what they want out of life and the answer is simple - to be happy. Maybe it’s this expectation of wanting to be happy that just keeps us from ever getting there. Maybe the more we try to will ourselves to states of bliss, the more confused we get - to the point where we don’t recognize ourselves. Instead we just keep smiling - trying to be the happy people we wish we were. Until it eventually hits us, it’s been there all along. Not in our dreams or our hopes but in the known, the comfortable, the familiar.”—
i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh … And eyes big love-crumbs,
I use to like this guy on and off but my bestfriend had started to "date" him they would act like a couple and do all the things a couple would do. She had asked me if I still liked him but I said no because I knew she liked him. Fast forward they ended up "ending" things she went away to study abroad, and now I've been talking to him a lot lately and we spend quite some time together and gotten closer. I can't but have feelings for him. But at the same time I can't forget what they had and it bothers me, any advice?
I think you should give him and the both of you a chance to make things work. Everyone has a past… And ultimately it’s not the people whom he has dated before that matter, but the end - who’s going to be the one he’s gonna marry. Let him know how you feel, maybe he can offer some reassurance that’ll erase your doubts.
I'm a 19 year old guy who would never read any sort of quoted crap or sentimental stuff on the internet ever. Although recently my heart was ripped out of my chest by someone I never thought I could love so much. I've been reading every single one. Thank you.
For a guy to say this, it means a lot. Thank you, and I hope things are better for you now :)
“There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t cause I thought I’d be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.”—Grey’s Anatomy
“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”—Bob Marley
“Let’s get something straight here. I loved you. I loved you with everything I had in me. But it was never good enough for you, I was never good enough for you. I would have done anything to keep you by my side, but you pushed me away for so long that I gave up. I’m walking away from this and I can promise I’m never looking back. It’s going to hurt, and it’s going to be tough, but I can’t keep on going with the way things are between us. It’s over and it’s been over for the longest time. As much as it kills to say this, we aren’t meant to be in each others’ lives anymore. You’re not the same boy I fell in love with. That boy, well, he’s gone. I wanted to be with the guy who would fight for me more than anyone had ever, the guy who could make me believe that when I was with him, I had nothing to worry about. But I was wrong. You left me so many times when I needed you the most. Every time I begged you to stay, you always found a reason to leave. I do love you, but being in love with you isn’t enough anymore. Our love isn’t enough anymore.”—
