It’s kinda scary when they talk…


“I know I’m not easy to love. I’m a chronic over-thinker, I overreact more than I should… And every once in a while, I might be a little insecure. But if I am in love with you, I can promise you wholeheartedly that you will be loved with so much passion and intensity that you’ll forget what life felt like before I came along. You will always be cared for and you will always have someone in your corner. Maybe I’m not the best at being loved – but I like to think I’m pretty good at loving.”

Before you date me…

You need to understand that I’m damaged. I get triggered easily. I have struggled with things. There are nights when I’m curled up in a ball on the floor and I won’t talk to anyone. I’ll shut you out. I’m not going to be able to trust you for a while, because everyone has always left, cheated, or chosen someone else. I will need reassurance. I will need you. I will need you to keep choosing me. I’ll need you to care when I text you saying I’m getting bad again. I’m a lot, I know this.

So before you think I’m always happy, that I’ll always be positive, that I’ll always be smiling – know the reality before you get involved. Don’t enter my life if you can’t handle it. Lastly, don’t you dare touch my heart if you aren’t ready for that.

“She needs you to be more than just her man; she needs you to be her best friend and her confidant; for you to be her voice of reason when she needs advice and her soundboard when she needs to vent. At the end of the day, she needs you to be the one person who, no matter how terrible the storm, she can always count on to protect her from the rain. She needs all of this to be consistent, something she can count on to never change. That’s what she wants… That’s what she needs.”
