"if you consider a woman less pure after you’ve touched her maybe you should take a look at your hands"
"You can be in a relationship for two years and feel nothing; you can be in a relationship for 2 months and feel everything. Time is not a measure of quality; of infatuation, or of love."
"You are not clingy, or needy, or silly for having needs for affection and affirmation and attention within a romantic relationship. Those needs aren’t an embarrassing outgrowth of your low-self esteem or depression or whatever messy emotional issues you may have going on, that’s just basic shit that people need from each other. We of course should not make our partners responsible for meeting all of our emotional needs – it’s not someone’s else’s job to make you happy. But inside a healthy relationship, being able to show affection, pay attention, and demonstrate “you are amazing and important to me” is a pleasure, not some task or burden."
"What hurt me
when you left
that it meant
you preferred to
take your chances
on complete strangers
"I fucking hated what you were doing to me. But more than that, I hate that you knew you were doing it. And that I was letting you."
