And now you feel compelled to see her in person, maybe just by showing up where you know they’ll be — right after you go shopping for a new outfit.
One time, I fell into the arms of love so quickly and so deeply, I couldn’t see my way out of it.
I rarely wear glasses, but when I do, they’re massive and horn-rimmed, their grand size consuming the half the contents of my face.
Most importantly, I prefer pouting to smiling, and I’ve never posted an “inspirational” quote with a shimmery background in my life.
Ideally, until we meet someone wonderful we can plaster all over social media, too.
You can only get to know so much about her from Facebook.
Even when you think you’re completely over your feelings, you’re not always ready to see them happily having feelings for someone new.
And that can make us all act just a little bit kooky — at least for a little while.
Had my ex secretly pined for a girl who was merely sweet and casual and easy-going?Together, we held hands on long plane rides to different countries, embarked on a colorful spectrum of adventures, saw new things with fresh eyes, staved off old demons and built a life. Sometime around month two of our breakup, I had heard from a friend of a friend my ex was “seeing” a new girl.I was convinced I would never recover from my heartbreak, and neither would my partner. But the sick, twisted reality about falling in love is at some point, one of you will inevitably fall for someone else. I tried to avoid wrapping my brain around the idea and live in the protective bubble of denial -- until I found myself in a drunken state crying intoxicated tears into my best friend’s lap at a 2 am party.I began to realize everything I had concluded about this girl was built on the false foundation of her social media presence. Through the empty vessels of Instagram, Facebook and now Snapchat, we project to the world the life we wish we lived, not the actual life we’re living.My ex’s new girl, (just like me) was carefully curating an image of herself that she wanted the masses to see. Behind every smiling selfie exists a desperate need for validation.
