  • I started to notice more details about her, big eyes, weird ears, a long hair on her arm… Honestly, I couldn’t stop thinking about her for the rest of the day.

  • Its like when you’re really interested in someone (crushing, if you will) and everything is so exciting- they take you on a hot air balloon ride, to the fair, out to a movie… the works, all waiting for the first kiss- and… its a total bust.

  • I try so hard to be kind and loving, and yet I really had no interest in being kind or loving to this person.

    anonymous
  • We try desperately (or not) to connect and be close to one another and its never quite close enough.

  • Im sounding rather bitter here… I just feel disappointed that I didn’t achieve what I wanted and I feel foolish for believing that I could create intimacy this quickly with someone. I know myself better.
