I think that people become infatuated with the idea of “falling in love” so much that they forget to actually get to know a person. We rush into relationships or at least we try to.
It’s almost like we think being in a relationship will solve all of our problems.
It’s almost like we fear being single. Like it’s some disease. As if being single makes you less of a person. As if it’s something worth slitting your wrist over.
Knowing someone’s favorite color or sharing common interests isn’t enough.
It takes time to get to know someone. If I’m 19 years old, that means I have a 19 year long story to tell, granted I only remember about 15 years of it, but it’s still a pretty long time. There’s no way in hell a month of text messaging equates to love or even dating. I’m more complex than a month of text messaging. We’re all more complex than a month of text messaging.
Shit, I wouldn’t even consider someone a friend after only a month lol.
I’m happy with everything the way it is right now. I just want to study, play Xbox, go to the gym, and eat cereal. And watch Space Jam. Damn, I love watching Space Jam.
I’m not trying to be in a relationship right now.
Unless the girl I’m speaking to can twerk, her name is “Lafonda”, and she knows all the words to “Get Low” by Lil Jon. Because that’s a deadly combination for falling in love right there.
