I used to be embarrassed over absolutely everything. If you think I’m being dramatic, ask any boy that talked to me during my teenage years how red-faced I was during our conversations. I was uncomfortable, distressed, and awkward as all get-out. It took multiple embarrassing moments, failed relationships, and low points for me to realize: … More Date The Girl Who Embarrasses Herself
I have a confession; I’m an introvert. You wouldn’t know it by observing me, because when I’m around other people, I have a very convincing people-person-demeanor. I’ve been able to finagle my way into jobs made for much more personable people; from dancing at kid’s parties, singing in bars, and working in customer service, to … More Are You An Introvert, Or Are You Just Depressed?
There are so many reasons you won’t choose me; excuses really, and I’ve heard them all. And while they are not all entirely bullshit, they are reasons why we can’t be together.

I’ll always remember the impression this boy once made on me. He may not have been the most gorgeous guy my eyes have ever laid upon, but he was the most remarkable.

You’re allowed to get angry over the smallest inconvenience in your life and take it out on the person who caused that inconvenience. You’re allowed to be unapologetically nasty. You’re allowed … More You’re Allowed To Be Petty
You couldn’t possibly have feelings for me. You never waited three days to call me, or told me that you would meet me for dinner, only to blow me off at the last possible second. Our text exchange isn’t filled with empty promises, or just a string of one-sided messages where I try to make … More I’m Confused, Do You Like Me?
What am I doing wrong? It’s a question I hear asked often, and a question I used to ask myself pretty frequently. In relationships, it’s easy to think you’re not suitable when your significant other is scared of you. When you feel like you’re pushing them away, you reflect and try to work on the … More This is Why You’re Scaring Him Away
You say to fall out of love; to keep my feelings at bay; to hold back my emotions, even when they won’t stop flooding my mind.
