Romance for the Hopeless

For love, loss and all things in between.

P.S Pictures posted are not mine unless I say differently

Finally have a working laptop again and since I’m trying to take my mind off of my crippling shyness and inability to ask out a guy, I’m going spend the evening on here.

Sorry in advance for the spam!

You are the knife I turn inside myself; that is love. That, my dear, is love.

Anonymous asked: I've fallen head over heels, absolutely in love with this boy that I work with. He tells his friends that he's fallen for me too, but neither of us ever makes a move on our feelings towards each other. He's the one boy that I can never see myself being without and I leave for college in a little over a month. I want to be with him before I leave so that we don't drift apart after I do. I just don't know how to give things a little push... I don't know how to tell him that I love him. </3

There’s definitely no right or wrong way to tell someone that you love them, I think that you just have to get the courage to say it. If you feel the way for him that you say you do, don’t wait for him to say something, just do it yourself, don’t rely on anyone else’s pace.

Now for the reality check part: I won’t disparage young love, honestly love is valid whether you find it at 15 or 58. I have friends who are now engaged to their high school sweethearts and whatnot and they are wonderfully happy. However, and I will speak from experience, college and university change you as a person and place strain on any relationship, platonic or otherwise. You grow and mature into a different version of yourself, you meet people who are unlike those in your hometown. Also, maintaining, let alone developing, a relationship long distance is very difficult. It involves sacrifice and patience on the part of both people.

Anyway, I just wanted to get that disclaimer out of the way. It’s not meant to discourage you from telling him how you feel at all. if there is one thing I think people should do, it’s to let the people that they care about and love know how they feel. I just want you to have all the information from me and my ‘old’ bones :)

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.

lalna:

i wanna date someone and live with them in a shitty apartment but be happy about it because we are happy together and we can decorate it with stupid dorky posters of shit we like and figurines and art and we can cook weird recipes we found on the internet and eat them and watch cartoons even if the food is gross because we made it and we’re perfect
