“When people walk away from you, let them go. You shouldn’t have to talk them into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, and coming to see you, because if they really cared about you in the first place, they would not be going anywhere.”—Unknown (via candlejack)
You hear people say all the time, 'i just want a boyfriend that will kiss my forehead,' or 'i just want a girlfriend that loves videogames,' or even, like myself, 'i just want someone to quote old movies with,' as if that's the penacle point in the relationship, the one thing every other relationship they were in lacked. But when it comes down to it, we are far now complex than that. I've learned first hand, I dated someone who could argue about comics with me for HOURS, we could delve into movies, books, all things nerdy, and tit for tat, we would match. But, as fun as that was,they weren't for me. I've dated someone adventurous, a dare devil, constantly challenging me, something I love. But again, it didn't work. It doesn't matter if you are completely wonderful in every way, if, by surface appearance, you are basically perfect. It comes down to that emotional connection, the pull in your chest when you hear their voice, the smile on your face when you hear their name, the overwhelming need, not want,to be with them. So don't beat yourself up, just because someone you like isn't compatible, love, you are perfect, just not for them. Don't sit and fret, stay at home all alone. There are more important things to be doing.
