Loving you was the best decision i ever made.
Loving you was the best decision i ever made.
If love was the last thing I saw before I fell asleep, i'd see your face and kiss your forehead to know that im alright.
You make me feel so alive.
Stroking your hair until you fall asleep truly warms my heart.
I love days like this where we can open the windows and it’s not too hot or too cold. We just do our own thing, but we’re in the same room. I just feel so wonderful and comfortable.
Why does making breakfast for you warm my heart this much?
It’s beautiful how quickly we fall asleep when we’re in each other’s arms.
How do you catch me every time I fall, no matter how far? You really are my love and my life. Thank you.
I just can’t believe I found someone so perfect.
I feel so loved and appreciated when you want to share your hobbies with me.
Your reason for starting to use my little hot pink shower comb is because “the scrubbies feel good” on your scalp. You’re adorable and I love you.
I thought fairytales weren’t real… but you make me feel like I’m living in one.
You’re so strong, fearless, and confident, yet you are still humble and let yourself express emotions. I love that about you.
Your laughter is one of the most comforting sounds to me. Knowing that you’re happy is such a wonderful feeling.
This is just a post I wanted to make about the COVID-19 vaccine, although many of you likely have gotten it yourselves or know the details already.
Today my love and I got our first doses of the Pfizer vaccine. The injection itself was almost completely unnoticeable (I turned my head away so I wouldn’t panic) and it was over in seconds; no slow administration. I am someone who is extremely sensitive and has a nonexistent pain tolerance, and needles aren’t exactly my favorite thing. If you’re scared of getting it because of that, just know that it is done quickly, and that getting the vaccine is way less painful that actualy having COVID-19.
It’s been about 10 hours since we got it, and we both have sore arms. My shoulder and back feel affected too, but it’s mostly the muscle at the injection site. I took a half of a Tylenol 3 hours after the injection and then the second half about 15 minutes ago. The discomfort and aching is for a very worthwhile cause, so it’s fine~
If and when you are able to be vaccinated, please do so to protect those around you who are immunocompromised and/or unvaccinated. It is free, provided by the government. Your insurance will cover all administration fees. If you don’t have health insurance, you will not have to pay an administration fee yourself, as there is a Provider Relief Fund that compensates medical facilities for those who are unable to pay, just to make sure everyone has an equal chance to get it.
There is skepticism regarding the vaccine, and it is understandable to a degree; it is not formally FDA approved. However, you should consider the fact that the vaccine would not be allowed to go public if there were severe, common side effects. There has been news about the Johnson & Johnson vaccine causing blood clots (still in rare cases, but more frequently than other manufacturer’s). I could be wrong, but the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are the most common, and that J&J has been temporarily put on hold. You do not have to get the J&J vaccine, and you can most likely find a clinic that uses Pfizer and Moderna instead.
Overall, the future is looking brighter on a global scale. Once most people are vaccinated, things can start moving forward again without the restrictions we have had for the last year or so. Please do your part for this future by getting your vaccine!
I love the way you pull me closer to you in your sleep.
I have learned more from you than anyone has ever taught me. I have grown so much because of your unwavering love and support. I can’t tell you how much this means to me.
I’m picturing warm summer evenings. The screen door is open and we’re lying on the blanket next to it to keep cool. We fall asleep, and wake up to see the sunrise. Everything is perfect with you here.
We’re spending another day in together, just as we have every single day over the last year. It’s just as beautifully comfortable as it was in the beginning.
I’m in love with a straight guy who does everything to give me signs that he likes me back, what do I do? We got drunk last night over the phone and he told me that he loves this girl and that he wants her back, and it crushed me. So I drank to numb the pain and to feel better and he drank too, i don’t know if I should’ve told him how I felt then because he doesn’t remember last night. Thank you for reading!
I know this is a hard situation. Hearing someone you have a huge crush on and have some hope of being with talk about someone else like that is devastating.
The key here is that he mentioned a girl that he still has feelings for. I don’t know if this makes you feel better at all, but if you confessed to him while he was grieving for her love, it probably wouldn’t have gone well. He’d still be hurting but then would also worry about hurting you and figuring out how to respond. So, the fact that you didn’t, even though he doesn’t remember last night, is a good thing. I think that reserving your confession for a time where you know he’s in a better place is much better timing.
You mentioned that he’s straight. I don’t know the specifics, but unless he gives clear, blaring, unmistakable signs that he is curious about pursuing someone who isn’t a cis female, it’d be best to respect that boundary no matter how much it hurts. I know that isn’t something you want to hear, but respect is mutual in every form.
Best of luck with everything, I hope it all gets better soon~
I dream about being snuggled and getting little kisses on my forehead. Feeling the warmth from a guy sounds like such a nice feeling that I haven’t felt in a long time. I would love to feel a guy snuggle me for a long while. I hope I find it one day
Even just us getting vaccinated together is so precious to me.
i’ve been in love with a girl for 3 years and it’s killing me. we dated for a year and broke up, and for the last 2 years i’ve been regretting everything we ever argued about and i’ve tried moving on but i can’t. i’ve tried dating other people but no connection seems to be the same as the one we had. she was my first love and i understand that those are always special, and to some extent you will always love them but i really can’t get over her. she has a new boyfriend now and i hate to admit how jealous i am of their relationship, but i respect her decision to move on and in a way i’m happy that she has found someone who she loves. the part that bothers me is how often she tells me that she never loved me as much as she loves him, it really kills me. i’m trying to come to terms with the fact that she and i are very different people now, and if we dated again we probably wouldn’t be happy. but it still hurts me every time i think about what we could’ve been.
Anon, I am so sorry you’re going through this.
You have a genuine heart in wanting to be happy for her in finding someone that she loves. It’s so hard to try to even begin pushing yourself to think that way. You’re being very strong about this whole thing whether you realize it or not. To try moving on, to try to stop thinking about her and what could have been, it’s a challenge unlike any other. The fact that you’re trying is to be commended. At the same time, you’re still hurting despite your best efforts, and that’s what needs to become a priority.
This is what stands out to me and completely solidifies my confidence in the advice I’m about to give.
“The part that bothers me is how often she tells me that she never loved me as much as she loves him, it really kills me.”
I cannot stress this enough… you need to limit or eliminate contact with her. I don’t know how close the two of you still are, but if there’s enough room for her to tell you that she loves this new guy more than she ever loved you, it’s time to stop keeping her in your life when she is bringing in nothing but disrespect, hurt, and a complete disregard for you, not even as an ex partner, but as a human being.
The thought of letting go of the last bit of hope you feel like you have with her is not easy to hear or process. But in the long run, no matter how painful it may be for a while, it will be better to cut her off.
The reason you haven’t been able to move on is because she’s still in your life, so you’re continuously reminded of what was, what is, and what could have been. The wounds still feel fresh because she keeps opening them every time she says things to you like that. It sounds like she wants you to feel this way, always thinking about her and wondering about her. Don’t give her that power or satisfaction.
In time, you’ll probably still think about her and you’ll probably find yourself missing her from time to time; she was your first love, after all. But once you can get away from the source of your hurt, you can finally begin to move on and heal your heart.
I hope everything gets better for you sooner than later. I’m rooting for you!
its been about half a year since we split but i still have hope. am i foolish
It’s completely normal and expected to miss someone, it’s grief and something you need to process.
At the same time, depending on the severity of the breakup, I personally find it somewhat foolish to try and get back together with someone. If the breakup wasn’t bad at all, to where you would say you’re still friends, it’s not a terrible thing to hope for. However, in the cases I’ve seen, it never works if it wasn’t a civil breakup. If there’s something that was big enough to split you guys in the first place, it can split you up again. It could easily turn into a lightswitch relationship, on and off, that would take a heavy toll on you.
If you really want to save your sanity in the long run, it would likely be easier to work on moving on and letting them go. Sometimes people are only in your life to teach you something or tell you what you don’t want in the future. And it’s okay.
If you really feel like there’s reasonable hope that you can get back together AND stay together, then by all means, please do what you think is best.
Wishing you the best~
i’ve been with my boyfriend for a while now (around 6 months? not sure) and i feel like i do want to spend forever with this nerd
the problem is, our families are pretty racist and it just so happens that i’m in love with someone my parents won’t approve
idk, i mean we can elope but to have approval from both our parents would be nice.
It’s between a rock and a hard place. You know you have racist parents, but they’re still family so you can’t help but want them to approve.
I am in an interracial relationship, too. The whole maternal side of my biological family is incredibly racist. I remember telling them I met the kindest, smartest, overall best guy ever. They were raving about him until I mentioned that he wasn’t white (came up in conversation when they asked about his family), at which point they did a complete 180. They hounded me for not finding “someone like us” and asked completely insensitive questions like “is he legal?” and the classic “does he eat dogs?”
I cut them out of my life that same day and it’s been almost two and a half years. It’s disrespect that I refuse to let be a part of my life.
My advice is to tell your parents about him, but start by telling them all the things you love and appreciate about him. Maybe don’t even bring up his race until they first meet him someday. That will put them in a position where they can’t make a scene about it and give them time to get to know him and see that a person is more than the color of their skin.
If they still don’t approve, then there’s nothing inherently wrong with elopement when you’re both confident that you’re ready. One would hope that they would see just how much he means to you if you guys take that route, but it isn’t usually a likely case. Also, and I know this isn’t something you want to think about, I don’t know how intense your family is, but it may come to a point where you’ll have to choose between them and him. I can’t say how likely it would be, but it’s something to keep in mind.
My heart goes out to you anon, good luck!

🥀 question: How can I subtly show a guy I really like him without straight out telling him
Realistically, people just don’t pick up on subtlety.
This is all just personal experience for me. I went through high school and early college having a couple huge crushes. No matter what I did to signal that I liked them, they either didn’t realize at all, or they realized and didn’t feel the same way, so they pretended to not understand. Then I’ve had friends not realize someone really liked them or friends that displayed signs to someone they liked, and that person never realized. It’s all too much runaround for virtually nothing to show for it.
I don’t want to be that person, but literally just tell him. The one and only time I’ve gotten someone that I had a massive crush on is when I confessed to my now-boyfriend. I really think that if you have feelings for someone, it’s counterintuitive to just hint at them and wait for them to like you. There’s nothing wrong with asking someone else out. I think people seriously underestimate the value of doing so.
I’m sorry for not really answering your question at all, but this is how I really feel about the matter and I’m going to stand by what I believe. Since it worked for me, I now have a completely different mindset about the whole thing, so if you find this advice to not be right for you, then feel free to ignore it. Good luck!
My sleepless nights never seem to end, but at least I get to lie next to you for hours with no interruptions. I’m glad I get to be the one to brush your hair out of your face and wonder what you’re dreaming of.
My bf told me he wanted to wait for marriage, but wanted to try some things. We made out a few times & did some light sexual things, & then the 3rd time & again today the 4th he asked me if I wanted him to actually do it instead of waiting. I told him no, bc even though I do I would prefer he waited since he was so adamant about it before we became intimate, & now everytime we hang out he initiates it& now I feel like if he changed his mind should I let him?Or give him more time to think abt it?
Let me first just praise you for respecting someone’s wish to wait until marriage. It’s certainly not common these days and people who want to wait are often faced with unnecessary pressure and can feel ostracized . Thank you for being someone that he can trust to not push him to do anything he doesn’t feel ready for.
That being said, I think he is hooked on what he’s gotten to do so far and is becoming more and more excited. It’s completely human. You have the right idea to make sure he is absolutely ready and won’t feel any shame or regret after. Talk to him, preferably not when the mood is on, about what he really wants so he can think about it with a clear mind. If he decides and confidently confirms whatever he wants to do, you can go from there. If you’re really unsure whether or not he’s just too excited about the prospect of it to think clearly, it wouldn’t hurt to give him more time to think about it.
It’s not a bad thing to constantly be asking “Are you sure? Are you sure?” because you’re giving him the final say. Every time he tries to initiate something, just keep checking to make sure he is okay with what will happen.
Some people change their minds on waiting, and that’s okay! And just remember, if you guys do have sex and he regrets it later, it isn’t your fault.
He is all the stars in my sky, any moment I get to see him smile is a moment I'm going to cherish. He makes me feel like I'm a human being again and I hope I can make him feel the way he makes me feel. He is the sunshine in my life and he is the one I trust enough to talk to when the sadness hits me. I hope everyone finds what we have
