How amazing it is to find someone who wants to hear about all the things that go on in your head.

the worst is having a dream where someone loves you and you can practically feel them touching you and it feels so real and then you wake up and it’s like the life is being sucked out of you and the happiness just drains out of your body and you feel empty again

the fact that over 300,000 other people know exactly what this feels like too is a source of great comfort

 
If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.

Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story.

My father’s lips touch his beer bottle more than my mother’s skin. He spends more time staring at the television than he does looking at her. Most of the time he chooses work over date nights, or relaxing evenings at home. He stopped taking her out for her birthday, and she stopped asking to spend more time with him.

Sometimes when she talks, my father doesn’t listen, and she gets no response. When he talks it’s usually about work, or how he needs my mom to do something. I don’t know what it is, I know they love each other, I guess that’s just what happens after being together for more than twenty years.


I just feel like so many couples lose sight of what’s important, because they think of how this person has stuck around for so long, what would make them leave now? I just don’t want my future marriage to be small talk in the evening. or red roses once a year on Valentine’s Day.

I’m afraid of it happening, I am. I just think, the older the love, the more it should be cherished not ignored.
