“The best part of having a relationship is getting to call the person or lay down next to them and tell them all the crazy things that happened to you all day long, and in the end that’s what it’s about, kids. It’s not about the sex, it’s not about the money that they give you or whatever. It’s not about how good-looking they are, it’s about, can they listen to you talk for hours and hours and hours about stupid shit that doesn’t matter.”
– Tegan Quin (via savelo)
“Marry a man who loves you more than you love him. A woman will always give more than what is necessary to her lover. It is ingrained into her, like maternity. But even when a man loves you more, he will still only be able to meet you halfway.”
– Rihanna (relaying advice given to her by her deceased grandmother)
“I knew it wasn’t too important, but it made me sad anyway.”

“The truth will set you free—but not until it’s done with you.”

I am in such a good mood, and I don’t really know why. I’m very sunburned and feel icky physically, but for the first time in awhile, I feel so positive. I had a really good weekend: spent Saturday night with my fwb and went swimming all day yesterday. When I was with him on Saturday and we were watching movies, I was sitting there thinking how comfortable I was, and that was something I rarely felt in my last relationship. I always felt like I was being judged with every movement and every word, because it turned out I was. This weekend though, I never felt self-conscious at all. And if I don’t feel self-conscious sitting completely naked on a couch in bright light, then that tells me something, lol. It was also really nice to feel wanted and appreciated, because it’s been awhile for that too. It would help if either of us had actual feelings for each other though, and then it would be perfect, haha. I loved being out in the pool yesterday, except for the sunburn part. It was so relaxing and I needed a day like that. This really was the best weekend I’ve had in several months.
I also have a date tomorrow with this really sweet guy I met not too long ago. He seems like a good guy and a gentleman, so I hope he really is, because that can sometimes be deceiving.
Also the Bachelorette is on in less than an hour, and that’s pretty much the highlight of my week, as sad as that is. :P
