When he says
He doesn’t love you anymore,
Roll your shoulders back
And look him in the eye
Even when it feels like your ribs
Are breaking inward, like spider legs.
When he digs up old aches
That he swore he forgave you for,
Smile
And ask him why he didn’t leave you sooner.
Ignore the way the words feel like sandpaper
Running all the way up your throat to your mouth.
When he blames you
For mistakes that wear his face,
Do not scream.
Do not cry.
Tell him that there are boys
Who would be proud to say they’d loved you.
Tell him that in two years
You won’t even remember his name
And don’t let him see the way you can taste your own lie.
When he leaves
Ignore the howling in your blood
And do not get up after him.
Not even to lock the door.
Do not, do not
Do not.
Smell his shirts when you box them up
To give them back.
Not one.
Swear off dating when you realize
You’re chasing ghosts that wear his smile.
It’s okay to cry over him.
It’s even okay to forgive him.
But do not go back to him.
If he did not know how to love you the first time,
He won’t know how to do it the next.
How To Pretend It Doesn’t Hurt, by Ashe Vernon\

I hope you fall in love
With someone who always texts back and never lets
You fall asleep thinking you’re
Unwanted.
I hope you fall in love with someone
Who holds your hand during the scary parts of
Horror movies and burns
Cookies with you when you’re
Too busy dancing around the
Kitchen.
I hope you fall in love with
Someone who sees galaxies in your eyes
And hears music in your
Heartbeats.
I hope you fall in love with someone who
Tickles you and makes you smile
On hard days and on easy
Ones.
But beyond all that I hope
You fall in love with someone
Who will never leave you behind
And who will never take you
For granted, someone who
Will stand by you when you’re
Right and stand by you
When you’re wrong,
Someone who has seen you at your worst
And has loved you
Still.
I hope you fall in love
With someone who
Kisses you in the rain
And hugs you in the cold and
Wouldn’t have you any other
Way.
Wouldn’t It Be Wonderful, l.h.k.

It’s time to be real. We all know Bruno Mars as that guy who croons the over-played, overly poppy, overly dramatic, overly sappy, overly cliche, power ballad/love songs. And I gotta hand it to him, the man has a nice set of pipes for sure. But let’s also be honest…the dude has some real issues. Let’s talk. Okay so Bruno claims he’s willing to catch a grenade for this girl he digs, but he can’t manage to buy her flowers? I mean that’s the BASICS of romance here. Like romance 101. But whatevs. Someone has weird priorities. Girls aren’t THAT high maintenance. He’s concerned that this chick (whoever she is) won’t do ANYTHING for him (which I mean c’mon we’re trying to play hard to get here…), but he ONLY wants to marry her if he’s bored? Wow. Okay. Now let’s rewind here, so he will jump in front of train for her, but she won’t “do the same”?? Uhh yeah? No. Since when have men been the damsels in distress? That’s not very romantic. You’ve got your cliches all wrong here Bruno.

And that song about sex and heaven? 

*cringes*

What was up with that?

It sounded like a total rip off of like Sting/The Police…

c’mon.

really?

You deserve to be pursued. You deserve all of those “good morning beautiful” texts. You deserve to be dreamed about. You deserve a man that will be awestruck by you. WHY? Because God made you something special. And whether you like it or not, SOMEONE WILL LOVE YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE. All of the faults. All the dirt under your skin. The baggage and the scars. The fears and the failures. They say there’s someone for everyone, and I believe that’s perfectly true. God made you for someone. Sure they’re taking their sweet time (and YES it does get aggravating waiting for them to find you), but they ARE coming and they DO exist. You gotta believe that. You gotta believe someone is gonna love you. Someone is going to find you to be beautiful and see you as God does. On the days when there seems to be nothing left, you’ve got to hold onto this because THIS is TRUTH. There IS someone out there going through the same shit that you are. They are wondering when they’re gonna find you. And they WANT you. They want to be with you and share all those funny moments, all those kisses and hugs. Someone out there DOES want to love you.

"I am a responsible girl."

"My kisses are worth more than a party or a movie. My body is the temple of God-not a play thing. The first "No" may be difficult-after that it’s easy. Virginity is still a virtue, lust is still captial sin. The way I dress, act and speak may be a temptation to my boyfriend . I will observe modesty for his and my own protection. My parents have done so much for me I wish always to be a credit to them. My boyfriend will be a husband some day. He must be a hero in the eyes of his wife and children. I will do nothing to prevent that on my dates with him. I want to be a wife and mother. I will reserve my purity and affection for my husband and children. If through my weakness, I should get pregnant, I will not take the "easy way out" by killing my unborn child." <3

I feel like men are more romantic than women.  When we get married we marry one girl. 
Cause we’re resistent the whole way, until we meet one girl and we think: “I’d be an idiot if I didn’t marry this girl she’s so great.” 
But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option or something. I know girls that married they’re like: “Oh he’s got a good job.”
I mean, they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who’s got a good job and is gonna stick around.

When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.
Archbishop Fulton Sheen

He has many names but I have only one motive.

I want to fall in love

in my own time

on my own terms

I want to know that he feels the same way

I want to hold his hand

run my fingers through his hair

feel his strong arms around me

suddenly I’ll feel all warm and secure

I’ll fall asleep with a smile on my face

I want to breathe in his scent left on my shirt

I want to feel his breath pressing against my lips

we’ll dance late late at night when everyone else is asleep

we’ll be loud and we won’t care

every day will be adventure

and we’ll always talk about a future

the days will get cold, but we’ll still be warm

every morning I’ll wake just to see his face

we’ll be the envy of those around us

and nothing will matter but the love that we share

every love song will be about us

and everything will be deep & insanely rich

you’ll say that I smell sweet

and I’ll kiss your cheek

I’ll be your biggest fan

we’ll smile for cameras 

and capture each memory we make

I’ll take your breath away

and leave you wondering how you ever got so lucky
