The 6 Truths You Wish You Knew Before You Started Dating
Let me get this out of the way first. I am by no means a love guru, I don't have the #relationshipgoals nailed down by any means. I don't completely understand what makes some relationships work and others not. I come from a line of imperfect relationships in my family; infidelity, divorce, lack of communication and other things that get in the way of making relationships work.
I am in a relationship with a guy who means the world to me. If you like love stories and thinking about your own, then I think you'll like reading this story. Having a special someone in your life is a gift. My name is Tay and I am dating a man by the name of Jonah. We have been together since eighth grade and are now in college together. We have had a very long ride these past four years. It's been a roller coaster filled with ups and downs, twists and turns. To the outside world and friends around us, we look like the perfect couple. People ask me, "What's your secret? How can you stay with the same person for so long?" All I can say is that we've never fallen out of love and that I'm just a lucky, lucky girl who found her night in shinning armour.
Love is Magical
Love is hard. Love is a commitment. Love is magical. I’m not talking about the kind of magic you’ve seen in the Disney movies when the fairy godmother helped turn Cinderella into a princess. I’m talking about real magic that you can feel deep in your heart when you know that you have found the one with whom your soul loves.
The Moon is Already Full
Why do we assume that when we meet people we connect with (platonic or romantic) that an instant relationship must be formed? That instead of honoring the love shared between each other and the patience it takes to grow more into the exchange, we cling to false ideas of safety in order to temporarily be "fulfilled" or "loved" or "happy"? Relationships don't work that way. Humans don't work that way. You cling to a flower for too long and it dies. You cling to an idea for too long and you go insane. Nothing is guarenteed in an instant, everything must have the space time and energy to grow.
Loving Someone in Prison
Many of us are here looking for support in others going through the same thing if not something similar. We all start with asking the same questions, how are we going to make it without him/her gone. We come to realize that it doesn't matter how long they are gone even if its months, years or even life – we have to all deal with the separation anxiety and that they were ripped out of our everyday life and being placed in a strange and scary place.
To Live & Date in LA
To live and die in LA, it's the place to be as Tupac said it best....maybe to live and to die in LA, yes ...but to date in LA is a definite no! Ask anyone who’s ever lived in LA, they’ll tell you, it’s suicide. Being single in LA doesn't even exist, you're either married or part of a clique, like a Hells Angels singles gang that took you in and under its wing when some asshole broke your heart and left you to drown in your own tears. They took you in and nursed your broken heart back to health with drink binging and club hopping. Each squad is solid, a true team, they are always there for one another and you can be certain, there is never a dull moment.
Love is Blind
It was the night of October 31,2012, I just started at new job as a server at a kosher restaurant. I met him that night and little did I know my life would never be the same. I finished late that night and was so tired, he was waiting outside and I just walked right by him. I had a boyfriend and I wasn’t interested in talking to anyone. At the time, I was working two jobs and the restaurant was my second job. It wasn’t until I started working full time at the restaurant that I really noticed him. By this time, my boyfriend and I were in the middle of a break up after five years together. He was my escape and he was so cute. I felt free when I was around him. He made me feel good about myself and I knew that I needed a friend.
What did I do? Did I do something so wrong that I don’t deserve the things other people around me have? No, I don’t mean material things. I mean love and loyalty. I need someone who loves and trusts me with their life. I want to be someone’s everything and I know that if I were just given the chance, I could be everything they want and need. But no one wants to give me that chance. I’m not pretty enough, too weird, too easy. People want what they can’t have. That explains why I can’t have this, and why nobody wants me. It’s the same situation over and over where I’m ready to finally be that person, but every time I end up getting hurt. I know I’m young and I should wait, but I don’t want to. But I have to because at this very moment there is no one like that for me. Every moment that goes by is waiting, and there’s nothing I can do about it. Even freezing time wouldn’t work. If I freeze time, everything would be stuck and motionless and not going any further. Isn’t that what this is about? Going further I mean. Waiting hurts, especially when you have constant reminders of what you can’t have. That happy couple a few feet away begin to annoy the living daylight out of you.
Lessons From My Love Life
In all honesty, I don’t believe in love because of what has happened to me. Like, yeah I have loved someone but, I don’t believe in TRUE love. Although I am still young, I don’t think I will ever feel what true love is but, when I was in the 8th grade, I entered my longest relationship of 7 months to date (I’m still young, don’t question it). I thought I was in love with him and that we would be something to call forever but, I was obviously wrong. Why did I think that an 8th grade relationship would last? I don’t know. I loved him but, love fades. The time that I was with him, I was the happiest. Then, that faded and everyday I cried because I knew he wasn’t treating me right. I knew his love faded away. I just didn’t want it to happen but, bitches will be bitches. In our happier moments, I went to his house and played games with him, went out with friends, smiled and laughed. I remember going to the city and walking around. Things then changed. We argued, cried and stopped talking once in awhile. We broke up and made up. That’s when I knew that we weren’t going to last and obviously, how is a 8th grade relationship going to last. I just didn’t want to think about the end, I wanted it to keep going. He was actually older than me by 4 years. So, yeah I regret it. Never date a senior, kids! Despite the grade difference as I entered high school, we had a class together and sometimes we would just ignore each other. Even after being mad, he tried to act like he cared but, just walked away. It left me crying in the bathroom. He broke up with me after about 3 months of hardship. I cried day and night, felt like shit and begged him to not break up with me. I wrote paragraphs and got replied back with sentences. It made me feel more like shit knowing that he did not want me back. Let me tell you, do not ever fight and beg for someone that does not have the same feelings for you. Please, let them go. Don’t hold onto them thinking of your past with them and thinking that the reason why they won’t go is because of all the good memories you have had. Those memories will now be known as a waste of time because he will leave. I mean, circumstances are different for everyone but, I believe that you must be with someone that loves you as much as you love them. No matter how much you love them, you can move on. I wish I said these words to myself back then but, I made myself look like an idiot and I will never do that again. I will never fight back for a man that doesn’t love me. If they don’t want you, let them go. It’s the best thing even though it will feel like the worst at the moment. They are not worth being in your life if they let you go so easily. I let the boy I loved go, and I was 10 times better without him. To think, why would someone hold onto someone they stopped loving? Whoever does that is a bitch. Although I was in love, I don’t think it was true love. It wasn’t real. People change and feelings fade overtime. It’s reality and you just have to go with it. Just remember, mistakes will make you better even though it was a waste of my time. That was lesson one, from my love life.
Living With the Narcissist
Mom always told me I was pretty. Prettier than average. She told me to use this to my advantage. I had my first son at the age of 17. Ten days before I turned 18. I would always look at it as though I was somehow more responsible than the next teen mom because “I waited until I was almost an adult.” Eye roll, right?
The Season of Selfishness
The twenty-second day of December brought an unusual warmth to the city of Wilmington, Delaware, at least for the winter season. Zevon Perell enjoyed the unseasonable climate. He had just reached the floor of his hedge fund, Perell & Power Capital. He stood at six feet four inches and possessed the skin color of embers. His business partner was Gerty Power, a five foot five inch lady with the skin color of sandstone and hair dyed the color of the waters of Aruba.
