The Update

I hope most of you are reading this because you read yesterday’s blog post and decided to check back for the update! He said… No to me but I said… Yes (to myself)! The first time I ask it’s still kind of vague. I ask if he’ll take me out some time this month. I don’t really say where, when,…

Flaws

There are so many articles on the Internet about not wasting time on guys who don’t pursue you honestly and whole –heartedly from the start.

Saying “You Can Do Better” but Meaning…

I have definitely said, “You can do better” to a friend before and I have also had it said to me. I realize it is a friend trying to support, compliment, and look out for you. That’s how I meant it when I said it, along with “You deserve so much better” and “Forget him, he’s nothing but bad news…

Desire’s Fire

I don’t think I ask too much of you But you can’t or won’t give me what I desire So it makes me feel needy and clingy Like I’m the only one burning in this fire.   -September 2016 Photo Credit

Just Friends

In one of our many fights where I tried to get out of this half -in, half -out, half -ass relationship, I demoted (or properly label) our ‘relationship’ to texting buddies. Stubborn would (yes, you guessed it) stubbornly tell me that we are friends (as if that would make me feel better). That particular label really rubbed me the wrong way…
