this love is difficult, but it's real

I'll never understand.

When did it become socially acceptable to ask someone out via text? And really, please tell me, when did it become socially acceptable to tell someone you want them via text? I mean, really? Am I supposed to swoon because you tell me you want me through nonverbal communication? Knock me off my feet, Romeo. Yes, please, take me now. You can't come up to me and tell me in person, but you want me to hook up with you? I don't care how hot you are. That's not gonna fly. I don't think so.

This is what we call a "red flag".

I'm jaded and cynical sometimes. I've had my heart broken a time or two. And I've done it to other people myself. But I still believe in happily ever after. I know I bitch and complain about never getting married, but I would rather wait forever than settle for a text booty call. Maybe I'm just confused because things like this don't ever happen to me. Is this normal?

When did relationships become so "easy" and technological?

What happened to regular dating? To going out and getting know someone? I just want someone to like me and my quirks and to want to spend time with me and to think about me when I'm gone. Someone who likes holding hands and going slow and hanging out at coffee shops and reading books. Someone who loves music and art and wandering. Is that too much to ask?

Maybe. But I can wait if I need to do that. Yep. I can wait.

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring. He said, marry me, Juliet. You'll never have to be alone. I love you and that's all I really know. I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress. It's a love story. Baby, just say yes.

Wow, I love you so much.
Txt booty calls are no good. I mean, botty calls in generally are no good, but txt was are kinda useless...why would you want booty if you don't have balls in the first place?
Anyways, I miss you.
Also, i love that you quoted Ms. Swift.

Eww. You're not jaded to believe in happily ever after. It exists. I'm certain of it. You'll know it when it happens and no one will have to text you about it.
