I had a little elementary school crush that began when all he said was “you’re cute,” as we worked on classwork at a table with just us.
My eyes lit up like the stars at night out in the country. He thinks I’m cute? *gasps*
Ever since, I had a hard crush on that boy. So, I decided to invite him to my birthday party when November came around.
I invited classmates that were girls. No boys came, of course, because I really wanted my crush to come. The girls figured it out quickly that I had a crush, and they figured out I invited him. The girls crowded around me, turned on the radio, and this one song came on that I could never forget:
My Love by Justin Timberlake
Thus, they sang, crowding around me, mockingly:
See, all I want you to do is be my love (So don’t give away) My love (so don’t give away) My love (so don’t give away) Ain’t another woman that could take your spot My love (so don’t give away) My love (so don’t give away) My love (so don’t give away) Ain’t another woman that could take your spot, my love Love, my love, my love (Source)
If you’re a 90’s-early 2000’s kid, you sang along, didn’t you?
In a world quickly becoming digital, unless you live under a rock, chances are you’ve met a few people online that live quite a big distance from you. They could be from another jurisdiction, state, or even a different country.
You start talking to this person pretty often, you realize you have a lot in common, and you start talking on the phone, video chatting on Skype or Snapchat, having a grand ole time. Pretty soon, you realize that you’re falling in love with the person, or vice-versa. You decide to give them a chance, and you escape into fantasy la-la land for the next several months. You talk about seeing each other in person one day despite the expensive train or plane ticket, you muse over living together in the near future. Expectations rise, excitement encourages, and the strong desire to be with that person inflates to the maximum.
Next thing you know, one or both of you realize that seeing each other, or everything else you’ve promised/mused about, is simply not going to happen. It’s not about the money–it’s a human need to be close.
Thus, the relationships turns to a bitter end as you realize it hurts more being in a relationship with a person you might never see, or start a life with because of your circumstances.
What I’m going to describe is particularly about teenagers and young adults having long distance relationships. Generally, they don’t have the financial stability to support themselves, let alone to prepare flight and living arrangements for themselves somewhere else or for a partner. Perhaps this can apply to older adults as well.
Let’s face it: girls are picky. Whether we like to admit it or not, we are.
I’ve heard time and time again on why a guy can’t even get a lasting conversation with a girl or even a response period online. Chances are, there’s nothing wrong with the women–it’s something wrong with your profile.

He was the most incredible scientist the world has ever seen. Why? The answer is clear: he was something called an Astrophysicist. A scientist.
An astrophysicist is a scientist that looks up into the stars. It doesn’t matter when, or where. The stars were mystifying at night. So beautiful, so many things to constantly count. Until one day, those stars went dark.
When Stephen Hawking was born, he was a visionary. Sure, the kids picked on him, called him a nerd. In fact, it didn’t bother him at all. For he had a dream in his head that he couldn’t stop seeing. When you dream, anything is possible in your head. You imagine things, daydream, and the ideas simply come to life.
I’m a writer. Not that it matters, but just like Stephen Hawking, I had a dream. One thing we have in common is that we are extremely shy people. You’ve seen those nerds before. Always wearing black, making ugly faces, but no one knew that someone out there was secretly, secretly judging them. Jealously? Hah! I think not.
The following article goes into secular (religious) subjects that are particularly sensitive in nature. Only read further if you have an open mind to new ideas, faiths, and practices. I will not tolerate discrimination, hate-speeches, nor generalizations.
A good number of us fall in love for the first time at a young age. Some of us don’t know what love is until later on in life. There’s even some of us who thought they were in love, but it was really passion that was relieved by a few good nights of wine and soft sheets.
Love can be a tricky thing. The word itself has been used so many times that it has lost its value completely. Yet, love can have different meanings towards different people.
To scientists and realists, love is simply a chemical reaction in the brain that gives us humans the drive to procreate with suitable mates. To the rest of us, love is a strong desire for someone we care about.
