Are you a good girlfriend?

 

“You couldn’t just pick and choose at will when someone depended on you, or loved you. It wasn’t like a light switch, easy to turn on or off. If you were in, you were in. Out, you were out.”
Sarah Dessen,

“I got my heart’s desire, and there my troubles began.”
Lev Grossman,

“My head’ll explode if I continue with this escapism.”
Jess C Scott,

“I just…I just miss him. And I hate being so alone.”
Suzanne Collins,

“She was a beautiful dreamer. The kind of girl, who kept her head in the clouds, loved above the stars and left regret beneath the earth she walked on.”
robert m drake

“That night when you kissed me, I left a poem in your mouth, and you can hear some of the lines every time you breathe out.”
Andrea Gibson

“Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and finding that that’s ok with them.”
Alain de Botton

“Submission is not about authority and it is not obedience; it is all about relationships of love and respect.”
Wm. Paul Young,

“We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything—what a waste!”
André Aciman,

“Most men claim to desire driven, independent and confident women. Yet when confronted with such a creature reverence often evolves into resent. For just like women, men need to be needed.”
Tiffany Madison

“If equal affection cannot be,
W.H. Auden

“Wanting him to come back before anyone notices part of the world has not moved since he left.”
Brian Andreas

“If a man, who says he loves you, won’t tell you the details of a private conversation between him and another woman you can be sure he is not protecting your heart. He is protecting himself and the women he has feelings for. Wise women simply see things as they are, not as their low self-esteem allows.”
Shannon L. Alder

“An unarticulated crush is very different from an unrequited one, because at least with an unrequited crush you know what the hell you’re doing, even if the other person isn’t doing it back. An unarticulated crush is harder to grapple with, because it’s a crush that you haven’t even admitted to yourself. The romantic forces are all there — you want to see him, you always notice him, you treat every word from him as if it weighs more than anyone else’s. But you don’t know why. You don’t know that you’re doing it. You’d follow him to the end of the earth without ever admitting that your feet were moving.”
David Levithan,

“The reason we all like to think so well of others is that we are all afraid for ourselves. The basis of optimism is sheer terror.”
Oscar Wilde,

“Oh, you know. Jace reminds me of an old boyfriend. Some guys look at you like they want sex. Jace looks at you like you’ve already
Cassandra Clare,

“It’s hard to communicate anything exactly and that’s why perfect relationships between people are difficult to find.”
Gustave Flaubert,

“It’s not your job to like me – it’s mine”
Byron Katie

“We know from daily life that we exist for other people first of all, for whose smiles and well-being our own happiness depends.”
Albert Einstein
