Crushes are fun. Or at least they’re supposed to be fun as long as you keep them that way. As long as you don’t get emotionally invested or fixated or keep imagining your reality to be what it is not – crushes are fun. But if you expect too much or feel too easily, you might end up with self-inflicted heart ache which just leaves you feeling empty-handed or just plain empty. And all of this for someone who never even promised you anything from the start.
I can’t wait for the day I fall asleep next to someone I’m in love with. Just think about it, waking up and seeing them and getting a really big smile. It sounds amazing.
When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.
